Friends are forever. Some of my best friends I have known for more than 50 years and some of my friends I have known for a few months. Time doesn’t matter in a friendship; it’s the connection. Most of the time, you know almost immediately if a person will be a good friend. Sometimes it takes a bit longer to see if you will always talk, laugh, and trust like the first time you met.
Friends can be any age. The friends you grew up with are special because you have so many shared experiences. Older friends can bring wisdom and advice in times of need. Younger friends give us a fresh perspective on life and help us remember how it was when we were that age.
Friends can be relatives. Friends can be near or far. True friendships can be broken but can also be repaired… the strength of the connection determines the outcome.
