How To Know If She's A True Friend

When you are wary about trusting her, she makes herself vulnerable for your sake. And, she proves to be a vault.

She cries with you at the same parts in movies and then you both laugh.

You roll your eyes at the same things.

She only needs a little coaxing to get up and dance.

She always points out the pretty things about you when you feel ugly.  

When you want to eat chocolate, she doesn't say, "you don't really need that." She just gives you a piece.

She loves you enough to tell you you're acting weird, or distant, or a being a pain.

She gets your humor. You get hers.

You're comfortable showing her your stretch marks.

She's comfortable with a butt-slap from you.

She just likes being with you.

She goes bra shopping with you. That's not a big deal, you say. No. She measures you, runs all over Victoria's Secret hunting sizes for you, and eyes your chest making sure you have the perfect curvature ... as a matter of fact, she may actually help in the maneuvering into said bras.

Even though you are not a hugger, you are comfortable hugging her (at appropriate times, of course, and not all the time).

When you are subjected to sleeping in the same bed with her, you're OK with her flailing her legs over you, or sighing loudly because you're moving too much. You'd still sleep with her again.

You would take somebody down if they messed with her.

I've really got some good friends. And I thank God for them.

Awww, this is so sweet and truly does describe a true friend! I have to say, that I have been fortunate to have a few close friends, that you have so wonderfully described in this post. Thank you, for reminding me of the tremendous blessing, that they have been in my life!!! Two of them are in heaven and I can't wait to see them again someday. :)

Love it!
Someone gave me a fridge magnet which says "A friend will help you move. A good friend will help you move a body!"

I have a friend like that - just had a girls weekend with her. She snores, btw, but so do I. I consider myself truly blessed to be able to be one of the lucky ones with a friend that wonderful. Thanks for helping me realize that.
