A Nice Email

Hey Y'all! I received this email from a good friend of mine and I wanted to share it with you. It really has a lot of meaning and can make you think about what kind of friend or family you are to others. I hope that when I'm gone, that I will have left a good legacy behind me and that my friends and family will miss me and forget about any of my short comings when they think of me. I know I'm not perfect, but I do love hard and truly care about the human race and not just my friends and family.

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.
A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself
and doesn't feel even the least bit weird shutting your
'beer/Pepsi drawer' with her foot!


A simple friend has never seen you cry.
A real friend shoulder is soggy from your tears..

A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names.
A real friend has their phone numbers
in his address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.
A real friend comes early to help you cook and
stays late to help you clean.

A simple friend hates it when you call after
they've gone to bed.
A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems.
A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.
A real friend could blackmail you with it!

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when
you have an argument.
A real friend calls you after you had a fight.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.
A real friend expects to always be there for you!

A simple friend reads this e-mail and deletes it.
A real friend passes it on and sends it back to you!


I'm passing this on to all my real friends and family. And to just clarify one point: Just because I cannot feel your shoulder or you my tears, and visa versa, through cyber space, doesn't mean that I cannot feel your pain or your empathy in our emails.

Tootles!
