When I asked my friends for their favorite “romantic scene” from a movie or show for my “Love ❤️” post this was the most surprising but maybe my favorite answer … Thelma & Louise — when they “take the leap” … for so many reasons “they lived” Robin your answer prompted this blog …🙏 thank you!
“We’ll be friend ’til we’re old and senile. … Then we’ll be new friends!”… unknown
I LOVE my friends old & new — the old ones have a special place in my heart because we have so much history. We have been through good times & bad & mediocre. But unlike a spouse or significant other or even a parent or child my feelings toward them don’t have the highs & lows, they are steady & smooth (for the most part ;)) — they are just my FRIEND — in good times & in bad, in sickness & in health. I’m a pretty “low maintenance friend” (I think, I hope?! ;)) and I have “low maintenance friends” we could not talk or not see each other for years and I love them just the same, we pick up right where we left off & I love that and need that in my friendships. Basically this is what sums up how I feel about my friends …
“I need and want friends that when I cry they make me laugh and when I laugh they make me laugh so hard I cry (& almost pee in my pants now that I’m almost 50!!!) … SB
