Make It Real


       This caption reminds me of the people who have 682 friends listed on Facebook.. or more.  Really?  I think it was Dale Carnegie who said if you can name 5 friends on one hand, you have a lot.  Sure we all have people we know or can at least call an acquaintance but that's no equivalent to a friend.  A friend knows the good and the bad about you, the highs and the lows of your moods, and is a help to you without even being asked.  That's what a 'real' friend is.
        I can say I am truly blessed with a couple of handfuls of real friends.  I am thankful to have 3 of them visiting today.  They know the dirt and the hurt that has hit me but also have shared the spotlights of great moments in my life.  I am thankful for friends that never end.
''The greatest sweetener of human life is Friendship. To raise this to the highest pitch of enjoyment, is a secret which but few discover.''
