How To Spot A Good Friend

-She calls you at 8 in the morning, to ask you to come over for a play date.
- You don't show up, or even call to tell her you're not coming, because you don't feel good.
- She doesn't get mad.
- You call her the next day and ask her if you can still come over to play. Puh-lease?
- She happily tells you to come over.
- You show up at her house with no make-up on, stringy, wet hair from the shower and in pajama pants 3 sizes too big.
- She doesn't even mention what you look like, except to comment that your pregnancy is looking "so good!".
- She lets you sit in the recliner, laid out, with your feet up.
- She feeds you a lunch of some yummy bean cascade thing and promises you the recipe.
- She gives you 2 1/2 hours of much needed "girl" time.
- She gives you a hug when you leave, making you feel loved.
- She stands in the driveway and waves as you drive away.
- She leaves you with a full belly, a calm mind and a smile on your face.

~she comes in the door and says "you look good" noticing all the hard work you've done the past three [and counting] weeks.

I'm glad you have someone like that in your life...someone who knows you perfectly, inside and out.
Mine are so far away... :(
I envy you!

I haven't had a friend like that since Barbara moved out of Grantsville. Friends like that are really hard to find so hold on to that one.
