DIFFERENT FRIENDS

By Eric - 1:44 AM

The beauty of friendship, like the beauty of flowers, is very hard to describe in words. There are friends who share our paths briefly at different points in our lives, while others stay close to us ... year after year.
Some are vibrant and admired for their strength, while others are delicate whispers of color ... whose gentleness always has a special place in our hearts.
We all meet many different kinds of friends along the path of life, each adding color and joy and beauty to our days.
Again,another wonderful poem about friendship which I love to share with you....hope you can relate this piece.



There are friends with a little "f" and friends with a big "F." The first is a large group with sloppy admission standards, the other an elite and time-tested crew.

A little "f" friend: Identifies themselves when they call.

A big "F" Friend: Doesn't have to.

A Little "f" Friend: Opens a conversation with a full news bulletin on their life.

A Big "F" Friend: says: "What's new with you?"

A Little "f" Friend: Thinks the problems you whine about are recent.

A Big "F" Friend: says: "You've been whining about the same thing for 14 years. Get off your duff and do something about it."

A Little "f" Friend: Has never seen you cry.

A Big "F" Friend: Has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A Little "f" Friend: Doesn't know your parent's first names.

A Big "F" Friend: Has your parent's phone numbers in they're address book.

A Little "f" Friend: Knows almost nothing about your family.

A Big "F" Friend: Knows the medical history, dietary habits and marital troubles of everyone on your tree.

A Little "f" Friend: Brings a bottle of wine to your party.

A Big "F" Friend: Comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.

A Little "f" Friend: Calls you at 10 p.m. just to chat.

A Big "F" Friend: Knows you hate to be called after 9 p.m.

A Little "f" Friend: Wonders about your romantic history.

A Big "F" Friend: Could blackmail you with it!

A Little "f" Friend: When visiting, they act like a guest.

A Big "F" Friend: When visiting, they open your refrigerator, put they're feet on the sofa, talks back to your spouse and reprimands your children.

A Little "f" Friend: Thinks the friendship is over when you argue.

A Big "F" Friend: Knows that a friendship's not a friendship until you've had a fight.
