“A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires your flowers.”
I totally understand this quote. A true friend knows you’re not perfect, but chooses to see the good in you. Everybody needs someone like that in their lives. You realize they know all of your flaws, but unless it’s an obnoxious sort of flaw, your friend ignores it. They will, however, tell you if you have spinach in your teeth.
“A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than a lot of friends who only know your smile.”
I like this one, too. I would add that one or two special friends who understand your tears is enough. It’s not good to cry on the shoulder of a lot casual friends. That would diminish the value of the trust you should have in a friend to whom you tell your darkest secrets.
“Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait to hear the answer.”
Who does that?
“Sometimes being with your best friend is all the therapy you need.”
That and a good belly laugh.
“There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.”
Have you ever felt that immediate connection to someone you just met? Maybe you have the same weird sense of humor, or like the same movies or books.
“A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad.
“It’s hard to find a friend who’s loving, generous, caring, courageous, spiritual, trustworthy, loyal and cute. So my advice to everyone is this. If you have a friend like Pat Davis, don’t lose her.
Happy Birthday Dear Friend…Everyone who knows you loves you…count me among them.
