I was talking to my sister yesterday and she opened my eyes to the fact, we use "social networking" as a way to PROVE we have friends!!! My son, Kirk, had 630 friends on his facebook and I... Well I had 459 Friends!!! What?? REALLY? In the words of Mike "Do you honestly go hang with every one of those friends on a Friday night? Yeah! So last night, and this morning we have deleted many, many acquaintances because we no longer feel the importance of having to have a HIGH number on our friends LIST!!!
A Friend Most True© Wendy Hinson 04.03.99
I need to know if you’re my true friend,
will you be by my side until the end?
Can I tell you my secrets deep,
and trust them in your heart you’ll keep?
We are neither of us without our flaws,
can you accept mine as I will yours?
I’ll be a shoulder to cry on when you’re blue,
will you be there for me when I need you?
No matter how busy I will make time for you,
if you are busy will you make time for me too?
I will take your hand and comfort your tears,
will you hold me and soothe my fears?
I will give you joy and many warm smiles,
can we share that even across many miles?
I will not forget what’s important to you,
will you remember what’s important to me too?
With you my most favourite things I’ll share,
If only I know do you truly care?
If you can accept me as I do you,
then I will know you are a friend most true.
