A FRIEND is someone you can count on who is there for you no matter what comes across in
your life. A FRIEND in my belief, knows you more then your own blood (family). A FRIEND is
there to listen not blab and to lend a shoulder to cry on. A FRIEND is there to bail you out of
trouble if needed, not leave you to stand alone.
As I said, a FRIEND knows you more then your own family but.........what if I was to tell you
that my TRUE, TRUE, I mean down-to-earth, all-around TRUE FRIEND is my own MOTHER?
My mother knows me more then I know myself today. She has always been there for me,
through the good, the bad and the worst. She has never left my side, she is always on call.
She always lends me her shoulder, she knows how to make me laugh, sometimes cry and
yes sometimes she makes me mad or drives me crazy but.....anyone you call a friend can
do all that too. SO, why not have your mother as your best friend?
I was born very small at birth. Some mothers now-a-day(s) would give up on their children
due to complications, the stress, the bills and so-fourth. But not my mother. She stayed by
my side and did her damndest to raise me the best she could. And you know what.......She
did a pretty damn good Freaking job of it. Im smart in my own way, Im very loyal to
everyone I meet, Im kind, sensitive, friendly, polite and easy going. A lot of people assume
(making an a$$ out of them and me-meaning you and me) that Im not that smart at all but
when I was in school, I had many friends that were younger then me. Many of them came to
me with their problems rather than talk to a counselor at school.
You see, I make friends very easy because when they came to me with problems, I gave
them the best advice due to my own experiences. Thats what true friends do as well and my
mother always gave me the best advice based on her own experiences. Why the heck would
anyone go to a counselor and pay bucko bucks for advice when you can get it for free from
someone who's already experienced it and happens to be in front of your very eyes. So I
ask you again, Why Can't Your Mother be Your Best Friend???? She can....if you let her. She
may drive you crazy, she may get you mad, or make you cry but she is always there for
you when ever she's needed. That not only makes a TRUE FRIEND but a REAL MOM and Im
glad I got one in my life.
