At one time or another, we’ve all got jobs, bills, family dynamics, health issues, children,… a million things that can stress us out. As blessed as we may be in our intimate relationships or bonds we have with family members, friends are a part of life that truly makes it special.
I try not to read anything on Urban Dictionary because, well, let’s be honest, most of it makes me cringe or blush. But, in this case, they have defined (with typos, which again, makes me cringe!) the term “forever friends.” Here’s what stuck with me…
“Someone who is there for you no matter what. Who knows anything and everything about you and still likes you. Someone who will sleep with the phone under their pillow just in case you need to call them at 3 in the morning. Someone you can laugh uncontrolably with or cry histaricly with…But most importantly someone who is there for you when you need them most and will love you through the good times and the bad.”
This is fantastic. It makes me tear up and smile every time I read it (as long as I don’t pay attention to the fact that whoever wrote this MUST be a sixth grader who has never heard of spell check.)
Anyway, what happened while you were reading that definition? You immediately started mental listing your friends. The ones who you feel are worthy of this honorable title, “forever friend.”
How often do you actually tell them that they mean so much to you? That you couldn’t imagine your life without them? Routinely saying someone is your “best friend” isn’t always the same as the feeling you get when you think about your forever friends.
You might have one, you might have five. That doesn’t matter. After all, remember: It’s quality, not quantity.
NOW is the time to let your friends, any friends you really care about, know how much they mean to you! Copy this picture and text it to them, post it on their Facebook wall, post it on your Instagram, print it and leave it somewhere for your hubby, etc. Let’s give our friends the good feelings they deserve!
Leave a comment and let me know how your friends liked it too!
It’s always the right time to brighten someone’s day.
