Friendship {No Strings Attached}

True friendship seems to be a rare thing these days.  I am so blessed to have friends that I can spend time with and can truly share my heart and yet not feel like it affects what they think of me.  Now that is rare. 🙂

Summer is a time for picnics, so true to season,  I spent Sunday evening with these lovely ladies.  We enjoyed a light picnic of cheese, crackers, fruit, sparkling water, and good conversation.  Oh how good it is to discuss life, even if no conclusions come of it.

Afterwards we took pictures.  Since we all wanted to be on the pictures, I guess you could say, I was the runner.  Yea it was an adventure indeed.  I think one of those remotes would have come in handy.

“A true friend is one who will be honest with you even if you’re not asking their opinion.”

You know a true friend by how honest they are with you.  I’m not just talking about opinions in clothes or shoes; I’m talking about day to day ‘drama’ or choices you have to make.  A true friend will give an honest assessment of the topic you are discussing.  No, it’s not always what you want to hear, but you know they a genuine when they aren’t worried about whether or not their opinion will hurt your feelings.  Feelings are only a fleeting thing that passes away, but friendships last.
