Just some rambling thoughts I had today:
When you spent your life being told to keep things secret
When you finally decide you're tired of being silent
When you've been told to keep your thoughts to yourself
When you decide you have every right to speak your truth
When you try to do it with kindness and without drama
When the drama happens anyway
That is when you find out who your friends really are.
With each passing year, I have learned to treasure my close friendships. Those who stand by in the middle of every storm. Sometimes family doesn't even do that for many, though I happen to have a supportive, loving family.
I'm just appreciating the blessing of good, true friendship.
