This weeks theme over at Theme Thursday is Balance. It got me to thinking about how I "balance" my friendships. I have wonderful friends, lots of them! But there are times when I wonder if there are some friends that I use when life is hard and others that are only for the good times.
My definition of friendship is being there through thick and thin, good times and bad. I will admit that I have good friends and then I also have true friends. The difference you ask.... (IMO) A good friend will be there for you to call for bail money. A true friend will be there in the jail cell saying, "lets do that again!" I can happily say that I think I would have trouble finding someone to call for the bail money cause everyone would be in the cell with me!
I know that dealing with Jakes and making the decision about where he would live was a very bad time for me and I love that my friends rallied around and supported me through all. I know that I was a very Negative Nelly and couldn't have been much fun to listen to.
Now that Jakes is happier and life is looking better, I WILL remember to share my happy days as well as be there for my friends through their good and bad times. I want to find that balance between needy negative nelly and a true friend.
