I had lunch this week with friend at one of my favorite restaurants, The Bavarian Inn. I absolutely this place. It's a local restaurant that specializes in German crusine, but they have the best crab cakes and whipped potatoes. The decor is wonderful and they have a great view of their chalets, which have great paintings.
While having lunch with a friend a question crossed my mind. Have you found that food tastes better when you're enjoying it with a good friend? I've taken a look at my friendships over the last few months, and I have few people that I consider a friend. Now to some that may not be a good thing, but to me it shows that I've matured and I've learned that you can only have a few friends. I have associates, but I can count my true friends on 1 hand.
The majority of them have been in my life for a long time. They've stood by me through marriage, motherhood, divorce and now my current relationship. They were there to hold me and wipe my tears when I lost my father to cancer. They've fixed soup when I was sick and vowed to take care of my daughter if anything ever happened to me. They've stood by me when I've made a complete fool out of myself and said things that I later regretted. They've stood by me when I've made brilliant decisions and not so brilliant decisions. At every turn of my life, they've been there. These people have made my life easier with a kind word, a hug, or a pat on the back. These are the people who I call my friends.
