Friends…Angels In Disguise

What Is A Friend?

Believe it or not. There are several types of friends. Chances are… you have and are one of each. No matter where you fall in the friend category, just know that Friends…are “Angels in Disguise.”

Friend is…A person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. They have a true understanding of each other. With an abundance of love and support.

A “True Friend” basically has your back, will always stand up for you and when someone tries to hurt you emotionally or physically. They will try and do everything in their power to make you feel safe and protected. They are always there, no matter what…they are present in the relationship, loyal and honest. Honest enough to let you know when you’re not being a very good friend! A True Friend neither leads or follows, but will hold your hand and walk beside you. When you find them you will know.

Good Friends, they accept you for who you are, and are there during the good times and the bad times. These types of friends are extremely trustworthy, and this is the type of friend you want to have….that we all want to have.

Acquaintance, they too are a friend to a very slight degree. Just more of being “acquainted with”…an acquaintance is less intimate than a friend. Sort of like someone in your class, whose name you know but that’s about all. This is someone that you know little about…you know “of”them.

What Is Friendship?

Friendship is a relationship between two people, it is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than that of an acquaintance. This is someone who loves you and you love back. Someone you trust and will trust you back. Plus you share a respect for one another. Time spent with this person(s) just fills your heart and soul.


There Are “7” Qualities Of A Good Friend

Accepting.…good friends are accepting of you, as you are. They love you, for you..no questions asked! With any and all of your faults, it doesn’t even matter to them.

Things Remembered

Honesty...the number one trait among good friends. Sometimes honesty among friends can be brutal, but that’s what you love about that person anyway.

Loyalty...this is one of the most important qualities amongst friends. They are there for you and ready to be by your side, no questions asked.

Respect…this is a “no-brainer”. The respect that is shared is one of the most powerful traits. You share each other’s secrets. They respect you and their confidence in you is held to the highest regards.

Trustworthy…This is a trait that is more important than all of the rest. For example, they trust you with their secrets, their sadness, and their heart. They can confide in you without being judged. They believe in you and have your best interest at heart.

Non-Judgemental…this a friend that is there to listen, be by your side…give their advice. But doesn’t judge you even if you don’t take their advice. They are there at your side, to lend an ear and sometimes to just let you vent.

Low-Maintenance… these are the best because life happens and sometimes you’re unable to talk to them on a daily basis, but the friendship picks right up when you are together.


I love my girlfriends…all of them. From the “BFF’s” and all in between. We each have a special connection. I’ve known these women for over 40 years. Through the good, the bad and the ugly. Our bonds remain strong, each connection is special and unique. We have cried together and laughed together. Been through a break-up, weddings, babies, and even deaths together. We are there to lean on each other, to listen, vent and even disagreed with one another. But what it all boils down to is that we care and love each other unconditionally. We care about the well being of each other. We overlook the highs and lows that we have shared. We are like sisters in our own right, we are supportive and compassionate. The older we get, the stronger our bond is. We…..I am truly blessed.

BFF’s for over 40 years!

Friends Forever

Everyone should be this lucky. There are all types of friends that we all have in this world. For me…my brothers and sisters….my heart and soul. My Mama, she is my world…my best friend. My husband, my kids…my co-workers…the list goes on and on. But the one that should really matter the most is the friend that you have within yourself. Always be the very best friend that you can be.

God has blessed me with an abundance of wonderful friends…I dedicate this post to ALL of my friends that I grew up with, and that continue to remain in my life and most importantly my beart.

My cup runneth over.
