The meaning of a true friend

Thank you for being a friend,
Traveled down the road and back again.
Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confident.

And if you threw a party,
Invited everyone you knew,
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend.

Thanks for thee beautiful lyrics Blanche, Rose, Sophia and Dorothy.

I recently received this email from {Jaima} ... one of those emails about how much you love your friends, pass it on, yada yada. I really loved this one though. I think we all know who our true friends are and who we are sincerely true friends to. True friends are hard to come by, as girls have the tendency to be caddy, competitive and well, bitchy. I am grateful to have some of the same girlfriends since 5th grade... and I am grateful for the wonderful friendships I have built with other women along the way too.
We all get busy with life: work, activities, boyfriends, spouses and maybe even children. It is however important to remember those true friends...
I adore all of my friends, and I am (I think) pretty good about staying in touch, getting together and just being a true and thoughtful friend! I am now going to make a {for sure} effort to be a true friend, and make sure my true friends know that I am grateful for them.
Thought I would share this email, it's really cute and I just love it, it is so true!

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.
A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps herself and doesn't even feel the least bit weird shutting your 'Pepsi drawer' with her foot!
A simple friend has never seen you cry.
A real friend shoulder is soggy from your tears.
A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names.
A real friend has their phone numbers in her address book.
A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.
A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.
A simple friend hates it when you call after they've gone to bed.
A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.
A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems.
A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.
A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.
A real friend could blackmail you with it!
A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument.
A real friend calls you after you had a fight.
A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.
A real friend expects to always be there for you!

I love you Girlfriends
