A Reflection of Friendship


Reflections 3

True friends answer the phone when you call.

They listen to you cry and say you’ve realized the only way you’ll ever be happy is by becoming a farm hand.

They don’t laugh at your new life plan, or suggest you see a therapist.

Well, they’re going to suggest you see a therapist.

But in the truly-concerned-about-you way, not the sarcastic-mocking way.


True friends laugh with you.

Even if they don’t think your strawberry joke or Eddie Vedder story is funny.

In which case they might be laughing at you.

But it’s the laughter that counts.

Reflections 2

True friends forgive.

If you’re running hours late, or are still working on that Christmas present from 2008, or called their grandmother racist, they forgive you.

Though you shouldn’t speak to their grandmother like that.  Have some respect.

Reflections 4

True friends stop and smile, even if they don’t want to, no matter how many times you ask.

I have a reflection addiction,

    True friends make sure to capture every moment so they can look back later and remember all the good times :)

    All true.
    They also get up at 4:00 a.m. to go wait in line for the Price is Right with you even when they have zero desire to be there. They do not leave you in line to go get themselves coffee and come back so late that you miss your chance to get in.
    Do you have the number for that therapist???

    You realise you’re stealing your own soul? Talk about selfish.

    All very true statements…you’re very deep and wise :-)

    I have to say — you have a unique talent where it comes to photographing images through mirrors. Very impressive.

  • Coma Girl August 12, 2010, 8:13 pm

    Aww, how nice. And what great pictures!

    Did you cut your hair?

  • Britt August 12, 2010, 9:15 pm

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :) I love reflection photos too. I may have a slight addiction…

    Couldn’t agree more…friends RULE! They do everything from holding your hair when I have to vomitus erupticus to telling you that you are a good mom even when you feel like you’ve reached your parenting low. Friends also let you borrow their clothes…amen…

    I love the photos, but I love the words even more! Just reminded me how much I adore my girl friends!

  • liz August 13, 2010, 9:38 am

  • Lula Lola August 13, 2010, 9:38 pm

    Love your words and your photos! True friends are as important as air!

  • Christina August 14, 2010, 8:16 pm

    All of my friends tell me I should see a therapist. Such a unanimous vote, you’d think I’d consider it.
    I would like to hear the Eddie Vedder story.
    Sweet post.

    Sounds like you’ve got some really great friends and y’all have some really funny stories!!

    That’s the best thing about friends…all the great memories made and the stories that you can tell 100 times and never get tired of it!!

    How blessed you are with friends like that, and how blessed they are, that you cherish them.

  • Bodacious Boomer November 28, 2010, 5:34 pm

    What a sweet story and so true. Good thing you’re not a vampire though. You’d be screwed.

    • Megan November 28, 2010, 7:23 pm

      I think that every single day.

  • sherene January 15, 2011, 10:45 pm

  • Mama Mary February 8, 2011, 3:56 pm

    My friends are my life just as much as my hubby or kids. They make me who I am. Beautiful post!

  • Bodaciousboomer February 23, 2011, 4:08 pm

    You are truly lucky to have so many good friends. I’m kinda jealous.
