friendship comes in all shapes and sizes
it is the family we wish we had
it is our inspiration
there are times that we struggle with it
and those are the times, I have found, that you must remind yourself
that your friend may be struggling too
one day one of my best girlfriends and I were at an outdoor quilt show
she is 5'-0" olive skinned, I am 5'-8" and blonde/blue
someone overheard our exchange and asked,
"are you two sisters?"
and before I could say a word, my friend simply and calmly replied,
"if she was my sister, I would have killed her a long time ago!"
and be thankful for whatever kind of friendship you have
for it is truly the best gift of all
that friend that makes us more than the sum of who we already are
and urges us to be more than we could ever hope to be
