Authentic Friendships

Do you have a best friend?  Do you remember when you met your best friend?  When I was in college at Concordia University, I met my best friend and we just clicked.  We look nothing alike really, she has green eyes and blonde hair, and I have dark eyes and dark hair.  We were raised in completely different towns from different backgrounds, but one thing we did have in common…we were both genuinely nice women.  We are women who don’t compete with each other.  We both love dancing and watching entertaining live shows.  We like laughing and are always looking to watch funny movies or standup comedy.  We also really enjoy helping people, and that is why we both went into the field of education.  

What do you and your friends have in common?  See, what I look for are people who have good hearts, beautiful minds, and authentically accept who I am and also care about me as a person.  It doesn't matter how many friends I have, just as long as they are real friendships. I have friends who come from diverse backgrounds and feel that my friendship circle is an open, not closed one.  I believe that a bridge of friendship can be built, even if we don't always agree on everything...and that is okay.

Today, my best friend and I live miles apart, but the bond formed through Faith and Friendship will last for a lifetime.

What do you look for in a good friend?
