It is one of the blessings of old friends that you afford to be stupid with them.” My personal opinion is that a friend is someone that will be there at any time and is person that I can share my inner thoughts with. Many people are just acquaintances, yet they call it friendship; true friends know the difference. In the dictionary, “friendship” is defined as, “the state of being friend, and the quality or state of being friendly: friendliness.” In my opinion, friendship means so much more than what the dictionary defines to us. Luckily, I have been blessed with a friend that understands me sometime more than I understand myself. We have been friends for eighteen years, and each day we are learning more about each other.
