Is a friend someone you have known for 20 years?
Is a friend someone you might not talk to for awhile but when you do, you talk like you’ve been talking every day?
Is a friend someone who never forgets your child’s birthday and always buys him a gift?
Is a friend someone who buys you a gift and likes your mom so much that they buy her one too?
Is a friend someone who was there for you when no one else was?
Is a friend someone who listens when you just need someone to talk to?
I always thought I knew what a friend was. I thought I was a good friend and could identify the same. It appears I was naive. And mistaken.
Very, very mistaken.
I understand that things happen in life and people make decisions to protect themselves. But when a friend becomes an ambulance chaser it leaves me wondering what the friendship was based upon to begin with. It makes me sad. It makes me distrustful. And it makes me angry.
I sit here torn between forgiving as the Bible tells me to and praying that she will one day get what is coming to her.
What goes around, comes around.
I also wonder how she sleeps at night. What is the character of a person who can look at a friend and see dollar signs? What is the character of her parents who I admired and cared for as they support her decision?
I guess you can put a price on friendship.
And laugh all the way to the bank.
