I have been blessed with countless amazing friendships in my life...I cherish my friends and I love them all so much. To me, the characteristics of a true friend is someone who will stand by you, no matter what. Someone you can trust with your deepest secrets. Someone who will bring you dinner and take your kids, even when you say no...just because they know that you need it. Someone that makes you feel happy when you are around them. Someone who doesn't compete with you, but is happy for you when good things happen in your life. Someone who will have your back and stand up for you. Someone who doesn't get offended or jealous if you spend time with someone else. Someone who truly wants what is best for you, even if it is not best for them. Someone who cheers you on in your life!
