My friend, Kimber, shared with me a talk she had with her almost teenage daughters. It was honest and insightful. Even as adults we need reminding what real, true friendships look like.  I know Kimber’s daughters were encouraged and I know you will be as much as I have been.

“I have had a heart to heart talk with two of my kids this week about real, raw friendship.

The sustainable kind of friendship that lasts far beyond a season of life or a common interest.

A friendship that says to the other person through every day actions, I may not always get you, but I’ve always got your back.

A friendship that can say when (not if) I mess up and you see my flawed nature, I know you will still stand by me.

A friendship that says I love you and am interested in you for who you are, not what I can potentially gain from knowing you. If you should become famous, influential, or important, I will treasure you for the regular you I loved before anyone knew your name, and if you are never anything other than an average citizen, I will be proud to tell the world that you are my friend!

A friend that says I want to really invest in your life….know what makes you tick, what ticks you off, what makes you scared, what makes you cry and laugh uncontrollably!

A friend that can say I care enough about you to hold you accountable in areas that truly matter, but I recognize your need to share your struggles and frustrations without constant or self-righteous correction. I am safe with you and you with me!

These gems are not typically found by the dozen – more like a rare few in a lifetime, and they are worth the patience it takes to discover them.”

If you have a special friend you might want to contact her today and thank her for the special relationship you share.
