Sometimes people come into your life for only a short time. You enjoy the time spent with them and will always remember the memories made during their brief stay in your life.
Others come along and touch your heart and change your life forever, they are the ones who become everlasting friends.
Everlasting friends are rare, and if you are lucky, in your lifetime you may make two or three.
You find them in many different places and in some surprising ways. They can be made in a chance meeting at a store, in your neighborhood, or even here on the Internet with someone you have never met in person!
You will easily recognize who your everlasting friends are, they are the ones who know everything about you, and everyone else in your family too and still stick around!
They are always there to laugh, and cry with you. They listen and HEAR you when you share things with them, be it a funny story, a rant about something that went wrong in your life that day, or a problem that is troubling you.
They always forgive you when you say or do something dumb and hurt them because they know you do not really mean it.
They go out of their way to do nice things for you, and set aside their own problems to be there for you when you need them the most.
An everlasting friend can point out your weaknesses and mistakes to you and make suggestions on how to change them without hurting your feelings because you know they are doing it out of love and without judgement.
Cherish these kinds of friends and give back to them all they give to you, because this is one of the sweetest things we have in our lives.
If you are privileged to have friends like this in your life, pass this page on to them to let them know you consider them your "Everlasting Friend".
