Good Friends

Pin It

What makes a good friend?

When I was a boy, I would have said it was someone who shared their M&Ms without hesitation. It was someone who wouldn’t share your secrets with another soul, not matter how hard they were pressed in which to do so. It was a person that would stick by you when you were confronted with those tormentors that seem to follow you throughout the varied ages and spaces of your life.

When I was a boy, I’d have said that a friend was someone who was more than willing to overlook your mistakes; they were someone who’d ignore the dumb things you said, and they’d be someone who’d forgive you for the thoughtlessness you show when you didn’t mean to, and love you when you least deserved it.

And do you know what?

I still believe this today…

I love Google Reader because I still got to see all three photos before you deleted the post. :-) And this is actually the one I would have voted for.

And I totally agree with your definition of friendship.

Cute boys - gReat picture!

I think a good friend is someone who will steal your whole post, pictures and all and post it on their own blog - and then it makes you smile for a week :-D
