You find your real friends
When you are going through hell
It’s easy to tell
They are just around the bend
And only love do they send
Fake friends can’t be found
In pain they are not around
And they make no sound
They leave you to stand alone
And with no love to be shone

Indeed … and at some point I’m afraid we all discover this truth, and it can really hurt. But thank God for those TRUE friends! They are really blessings from above!
You are welcome. Please take care.
Amen. That is so true. I’ve experienced this first hand. I’m finally in a place where I am supported and loved and I have found some real friends. Beautiful piece! I I love it. I love the picture. I love horses!!
I’m so glad you can identify, and even happier that you are now surrounded by true friends. It really hurts to discover, beyond any doubt, that those whom you had considered friends for so many years are really not friends at all… But thankfully I am in the process of finding true friends myself. Thank you for your most gracious words, and blessings to you!
You’re welcome. Thank you. I am happy to have these friends. I’m glad you are in the process of finding true friends. I’m glad to hear that.
Ah yes, painful lessons, however necessary. Quality always better as quantity.
So very true… Thank you!
