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.
