Friendships

You gotta love them.
Sometimes you also gotta hate them.



I love my friends.
Returning home has shown me that some people still care about me, and it also has shown that others just don't give a damn. Pardon my French.
I've had it. 
You know I am here and you know that I'll be leaving again, too. I've contacted you, and if you don't think our friendship is important or worth it - as I see it right now because I don't get hardly any responses whatsoever - then, well, then, I think our friendship isn't what I thought it was. I don't care how busy you are, or how involved you are in whatever you are doing because I know that even the busiest person has time for her or his friends. If that fails, life fails, and well, maybe life failed for some of my friends. 

Their loss.
Not mine.
Even though I feel sad and kind of mad, too.

I even sacrificed an evening of sitting in my PJ's on the couch watching my favorite soccer team play just so I can go out with my girl friends. I love my girls. We are all so diverse. Some of us are married and have children, and others don't have a partner or children and still live life or travel too much or live abroad. We still manage to get together and enjoy the little things, even when one is about to collapse from work and the other one needs a time-out from her daily mom-world. I appreciate that. That's what friendships are for. 


Hope you're having a fabulous, fun-filled, friendship-filled weekend!!!

xoxo

Lovely post...
So true, true friends will always be there no matter the distance nor the time spent away from each other... but sad too that some friends we think are close to us and whom we have loved and thought of for years as great friends don't care about us as much as we do for them.

True friends are so much better than "fake" friends. I love a friendship that remains solid and true throughout the years, regardless of how far apart you may be.

I've learned some very hard lessons on friendship and I think that's why I keep myself guarded now. It can be really hard.

It's always hard to realize some people can't make the time for friendships. At least now you know who's really there for you!

It's so hard when you find out who your real friends are, but then again it's nights like you had with your real friends that make it worth it. Don't worry about the others - they weren't worth your time anyway!

Amen...as you get older, you will even see it more clearly...those who will always be there for you and those who won't. Cherish the ones that stand by you know matter what!!
