Good friends come and go but great friends are hard to find.
They are the kind you count on when life gets rough. The kind you can be bitchy too but they understand and still love you. The kind you can get together with husbands and everyone has a good time. The kind that will listen to you go on and on about the same subject for days and still listen. The kind that love you dispite your faults. The kind you can get a pedicure with, blueberry pick with, laugh with, cry with and take coping medicine with.
While my family is number one I feel pretty darn luck that I have a few of these great friends in my corner.
