A friend is someone who knows all about you,
And loves you just the same.
Yesterday a friend and I went shopping and then had lunch. It was a wonderful day! We used to see each other quite often. But now life gets in the way, so it is weeks between visits. Yet, when we do see each other, it’s like no time has passed
Our lives are very different. My friend is married, has children and grandchildren. Her family, for the most part, lives close by. I am single with no children, and my family lives in another state.
She is an extrovert. I am an introvert. We both like to read, but we like different kinds of books. She is happy entertaining people, even if she doesn’t know them well. I find it difficult. Unlike me, she is always busy, always on the go.
She knows more about me than anyone else. She has most of my secrets, and I know they are safe with her. It is something of a wonder that we are friends, and yet we are. She is more than a friend. She is family.
She is my soul-sister.
