Theme Song Thursday: True Friends

28 Mar

“An acquaintance merely enjoys your company, a fair-weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.”
― E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly
************
I am so blessed to have so many true friends. You know how I realized how many true friends I have? Well, last night, I was on the phone with one of my best friend from back home, Lin. Her daughter just had a beautiful baby boy, and we were catching up and rejoicing in the miracle of birth. While on the phone, my friend Lynne, who lives just a couple miles away, was trying to call me on my cell phone, then my home phone. (Yes, I have about a dozen friends named Lin, Lynn, Lynne, Lynda or Linda. I joke and say all my friends are named Lynn.)

After four or five attempts, I finally told Lin, “I think my friend Lynne is getting nervous because I’m not answering the phone.” So, I hung up and called the worrying friend back. Yes, she was concerned. It’s comforting to know that friends are looking out for you. My mom and sister get nervous if they don’t hear from me every day.

Then this morning, I didn’t go to my Zumba class at 8:30, so Karen called me after the class. Why? Because I never miss Zumba, and she was worried about me. Again…great to have great friends.

This is my blessed life, filled with friends and family who care about me and who I love with all my heart. Plus, they have “the pluck” to tell me what I need to hear. And believe me…they do.

“True Friend” Hannah Montana lyrics

[Verse 1]
We sign our cards and letters BFF
You’ve got a million ways to make me laugh
You’re lookin’ out for me; you’ve got my back
It’s so good to have you around

You know the secrets I could never tell
And when I’m quiet you break through my shell
Don’t feel the need to do a rebel yell
Cause you keep my feet on the ground

[Chorus 1]
You’re a true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
‘Til it’s alright again
You’re a true friend

[Verse 2]
You don’t get angry when I change the plans
Somehow you’re never out of second chances
Won’t say “I told you” when I’m wrong again
I’m so lucky that I’ve found

[Chorus 2]
A true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
‘Til it’s alright again

[Bridge]
True friends will go to the end of the earth
Till they find the things you need
Friends hang on through the ups and the downs
Cause they’ve got someone to believe in

[Chorus 3]
A true friend
You’re here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
No need to pretend
You’re a true friend
You’re here till the end
Pull me aside
When something ain’t right
Talk with me now and into the night
‘Til it’s alright again
You’re a true friend [3x]
