To the people who love you, you are beautiful already.
This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings
but because they so clearly see your soul.
Sometimes friendship becomes something deeper. It is a rare gift when this happens. These friendships become a safe place, a haven, a home of the heart. A place where acceptance is normal even when situations and circumstances are not. These friends listen and offer their thoughts and insights without judgment. They will laugh and cry, be serious or silly, offer advise or remain quiet, whatever you need is what they give you.
These friendships are rare and I am blessed with more than one. These friends have been with me in good and bad times. They have supported me and given me strength with their love and wisdom. It is a wonder and joy to know them. They are my family. They are my soul-sisters.

Acceptance, trust and support are the three pillars of friendship. They are indeed rare.
Have a fabulous day, Patricia. ♥
Yes, they are rare. It takes a certain courage, and vulnerability, to be a true friend.
I had a friend like that who passed away in 2008, and a day doesn’t go by that I don’t miss her. She was 8 years older, and I truly looked up to her since, she was everything I longed to be. Kind, chic, a little mischievous and terribly funny. She’d always listen, never forgot my birthday and thought I was greatest thing since sliced bread. I didn’t have that approval as a kid, so it meant the world. I loved this.
PS I LOVE the tulips. God was sure showin’ off when he made those. 🙂
I love tulips and daffodils! They are such a welcome sight in the Spring.
I am sorry your friend is no longer here with you, but I know she still lives in your heart and memories. We are truly blessed when these folks come into our lives.
Soul sister is the perfect word.
I agree. 🙂
It has special meaning for me and is perfect.
