Good Friends

August 23, 2014


A good friend will remember how much you like invertebrates and even though they might think large, beetle-y things are icky and better suited as chicken food they will yell for you to come and see so you don’t miss out.

A good friend will remember that you are cranky without caffeine and take you through the drive-through even though you are both already late for a big concert.

A good friend will share sad news with you and know you will hold their delayed and seemingly broken dreams in your heart without trying to fix it or saying too much.

A good friend will know when you have disappointments of your own and be close, but not too close – patient with you until the words are ready.

A good friend will listen to your thoughts, but make their own decisions.

A good friend will creatively make opportunities for you both to grow and learn and you might not even notice right away that it is happening.

For the record, I am surrounded by good friends.
