On Friendship

Friends. Not acquaintances.
Who are they?
Those who share, with genuine emotion, your woes and triumphs.
The ones who mean it when they ask: How are you doing?
Then they really listen to the answer.
The folks who leave you feeling energized and inspired after a good conversation.

We get so busy with our lives, the work, the activities, the kids, that when we stop to breathe, like I have this summer, we wonder where our friends are. Finding them is actually pretty easy. Just ask: How are you doing?

And mean it.

And listen.

I recognize my friends by these qualities now, not by how often we see each other.

Sigh, I should've known better.

That's all I have to say about that.
