Today I am glad for old friends

There is nothing quite like a good friend. Especially one you have known for years. Your sense of history together, the memories you share, how she gets what you mean because she was there as well...and the fact that you still hang out after so much passed time speaks to your true kinship. If you are lucky, she is non judgemental but gives it to you straight if you ask. I only need one friend of this caliber and I have one.  But I am always excited to meet new folks. They are the icing on the cake.

You can always tell a real friend: when you’ve made a fool of yourself he doesn’t feel you’ve done a permanent job. ~Laurence J. Peter

A bosom friend — an intimate friend, you know — a really kindred spirit to whom I can confide my inmost soul. ~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
