i found my real friends. the ones who were always there, whether i needed them or not. the real friends who saw past my plastic smile. the people who knew what to say. my friends who made me laugh when i was beside myself. the kids who prayed for me. my friends who worshiped with me. they have been around for years now. never left my side. but i was thinking about it. and these are my real friends. although sometimes they feel like brothers and sisters.. :) and today and everyday from now on, i will thank God for them.
