I love my “true” friends. I simply adore them. They are an extended version of family. I respect them, protect them, do not speak negatively about them, and am loyal to them whether in their view or not! I am happy to see great things happen to them and sad with the inverse. My “true” friends reflect the rainbow coalition. Although I cannot see the hearts of my true friends, somehow we manage to always be a heartbeat away! Nothing beats the closeness of loving family and friends! Judge me not for this is what I was taught! Blame the “Mississippi” in me!
