Good Friends

Friendship Comments at

I often wonder if finding good friends is possible any more. I learned at a late age that people you know are not your friends just because they call you friend. You would have thought that I would have learned this in school but I didn't learn this till I entered the work place and found that adult drama can be even harder then high school drama.
I have three good friends and I have known all three of them since kindergarten. I can actually remember the first time I met my friend Shannon and I was only five. I remember it like it was Yesterday and I can even tell you what she was wearing. She had long red curly hair, purple butterfly earrings and matching butterfly Barrett's. Her accessories matched her purple shirt and we played dolls together while our mothers talked with the teacher.
I really don't know why I remember that moment the way I do but I do know that Shannon has become my sister over the years and she is one of those people I will always hold dear to my heart.
With 27 years of friendship behind us, there have been good times and bad times and even though we don't get to talk everyday it seems we can pick up just where we left off. That is a friendship worth treasuring for life.

I watch my daughter Saylor who is five, try and make friends with strangers. My heart breaks when I see her needing friendship that much, she is willing to ask anyone to be her friend. I say to her all the time that when she goes to school she will make many friends, but I really know how hard it is to make good friends. Since we are in the military we move around so much my girls will most like never be able to develop the friendships I have with my life long friends.
I think it can be hard for girls also because girls can be caddy and when your the new girl in school it makes the cattiness even bigger.
I have two best friends I have always known and that is my mom and my sister. They are two people I will never be able to live without and just knowing them has made me a better person. I could talk all day about my mom and sister but my friendship with them is what I hope for my girls. Because we move around so much I am hoping they will be able to create strong, bonding friendships with each other.

Friends are very important in life and especially good friends should never be taken for granted. Friendship holds no grudges, friendship is honest and forgiving,and when you have a good friend you sometimes don't know how good a friend is till the friendship is lost.


  1. Very neat post. Kids live by example and I would bet that you, your sister and your mom are great examples of what friendship should look like. Matbe that is why Saylor wants friends so bad. She can see how great it is to have them.
