My Friends Whom I Love

I received this in an email yesterday.
I just wanted to share it with you!
I had to use my own photos because the others didn't show up.

When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom.
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'
Another , 'Let's fight together,'
Another , 'Let's walk away together

One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,
Another your love for movies,
Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another will be your clarifier,
Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself .
Those are your best friends.

I love the pictures! Is there a story behind the striped shirt and striped knee socks one? How about the one above it, looks like you were dressed up for something special?

No, I was just showing off my new school clothes, and the shirt and socks were THE in thing then.

No, nothing special. My mother loved to take my picture! The only problem is that she never captured Foo-Foo, Castrina or Drinkwater n her photos, and they were there!
