A friend leaves a warm bed on a rainy night to dole out two consecutive boxes of Kleenex. Picks up the phone even though there are only a few minutes to spare. Skips Friday night dinner plans to shake up the ultimate “I hate him” martini. A friend brings ice cream.
Sometimes we qualify them: high school friend, college friend, best friend, family friend, work friend, acquaintance. Yet, no matter how you find them, a friend makes the world a much brighter place.
A true friendship will survive disagreements, new jobs, new relationships, family insanity, and moves across the country. It transcends any distance, any timeline, any lifestyle.
True friends are the family we choose.
