"My Friend" by Taylor Hicks
This entry is dedicated to all my crazy friends out there, and the
GIRLS IN MY CIRCLE!
When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up, God would show you the best in many friends.
One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,
Another your love for movies,
Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another the wind beneath your wings,
Another will be your dancing partner.
But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,
Or to make all the arrangements for a ... road trip,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself ...
Those are your best friends.
It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
But for many, it's wrapped up in several..
One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Several from the college years,
a couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,
On others, your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.
But on most days it's our Soul Sisters!
So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes, 20 years, or since Taylor Hicks' music brought you together ... the message never grows old ... a great friend IS the perfect accessory!
Share That Smile My Friend!
