NO MATTER WHERE WE GO OR WHO WE BECOME, NEVER FORGET WHO HELPED US GET THERE. THERE'S NEVER A WRONG TIME TO PICK UP A PHONE OR SEND A MESSAGE TELLING YOUR FRIENDS HOW MUCH YOU MISS THEM OR HOW MUCH YOU CARE FOR THEM.
A FRIEND IS THE PERSON WHO GIVES YOU THE BETTER OF THE TWO CHOICES, HOLDS YOUR HAND WHEN YOU'RE SCARED, HELPS YOU FIGHT OFF THOSE WHO TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU, THINKS OF YOU AT TIMES WHEN YOU ARE NOT THERE, REMINDS YOU OF WHAT YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN, HELPS YOU PUT THE PAST BEHIND YOU BUT UNDERSTANDS WHEN YOU NEED TO HOLD ON TO IT A LITTLE LONGER, STAYS WITH YOU SO THAT YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE, GOES OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE TIME FOR YOU, HELPS YOU CLEAR UP YOUR MISTAKES, HELPS YOU DEAL WITH PRESSURE FROM OTHERS, SMILES FOR YOU EVEN WHEN THEY ARE SAD, HELPS YOU BECOME A BETTER PERSON, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY CARES ABOUT YOU!

PASS THIS ON TO THOSE FRIENDS OF THE PAST, THOSE OF THE FUTURE AND THOSE YOU HAVE MET ALONG THE WAY…
IF YOU GET IT BACK, YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR TRUE FRIENDS!
