Friends to the End – 03.28.16

One of the cutest stories I read today. 😉

Trying to talk about our friendship is like chewing ten pieces of bubble gum at the same time —it ties my tongue up in knots.

It’s really hard to get out all the words to explain how good it feels to be your friend, which is pretty weird, because talking is one of the things we do best. But lately I’ve been thinking a lot about friendship and about what makes it so great to have good friends. For one thing, friends truly care about each other. You can trust them with your most secret secrets, and you can count on them to watch your back and never forget about you or leave you behind.

It’s kind of spooky, but friends just seem to know what you need without even saying a word, whether it’s a big hug, an emergency back scratch (:D lol), or just a little peace and quiet to get your thoughts together. Of course, it’s also good to have some time alone with your favorite toys or a pig-out snack attack. But when a friend calls, you slam on the brakes, turn around, and then come running as fast as you can. Because with friends (and this is the best thing about friendship), spending time with each other means fun — loads of fun!

It mights mean putting on a hilarious musical production in fancy costumes or splashing around in the pool or at the beach on a hot day.

Friends have fun going on crazy adventures, catching the first summer raindrops or winter snowflakes on the tips of their tongues, and singing (or screaming at the top of their lungs) all the words to their favorite songs.

One day you might start out inventing strange, delicious cookies in the kitchen and end up doing wild and crazy dances till you are absolutely wiped out. Of course, even friendship has rough spots, too. There will be times when we don’t see eye-to-eye. Big arguments can start over silly things. We might even make the mistake of letting others come between us. And that would make me sad. The truth is that even the best friends can drive each other crazy from time to time or do things that are way too gross to believe. But eventually, we have to shrug our shoulders, forgive each other, and move on, because that’s what real friends do.


Without friends, life would be awfully lonely, perhaps a little bit scary, and certainly a lot more boring. After all, you can’t do high-fives with yourself without looking like an idiot. Sometimes even really fun things don’t seem worth doing without someone to share them with and, what’s more, with friends we can do so many things that we just can’t do by ourselves. In fact, with their help, even the utterly impossible seems deliciously doable.

True friends make us smile as soon as we see them. They brighten up our day without even trying-it just feels good to have them around. I know how lucky I am to have found a friend like you. And I just want to say that no matter what happens, you will never be alone, because I will always be your friend. Always.
