A True Friend
"My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me." Henry Ford
My best friend constantly sings my praises to others. When it's just the two of us, though, she does not hesitate to call me out when she disagrees with something I've said or done.
That time I spent days cooped up inside with the exception of work because a breakup left me devastated - she is the one who dragged me out to a funny movie and then for a cup of tea so we could have a heart to heart. When I was hesitant about going after my dream because of "practical concerns" she pointed out that I would likely regret not taking the opportunity that was in front of me.
Today, I will send my friend a note, I will sing her praises and thank her for all she has done for me.
