Friends…. they come in all shapes and sizes and types of species…. but they have one thing in common, they love you for who you are, not what you are. Most of my friends in my life now are not human, for while I genuinely like ppl, I dont trust most of them. Its not them, its what my human “friends” in the past have done to me. Those that know me well know I keep a certain distance between most ppl and myself. They have come to know its not personal, its just who I am and they know why. For many ppl having a large group of friends is all important and going out every week with their friends is the highlight of their week. That is great, but for me just being home with family and the collies makes my day. Those that are my friends know I care about them and with my new job and the hours I work they wont see me much until the shift changes. By the way, one thing I have learned is that those who claim to be friends but only hang around for one interest arent really friends. Disagree with them on that interest and see how quickly they are no longer your “friend.” Through the collies I have made lots of nice friends who share more than just collies with me, we talk about lots of other things like books, family, tractors, the weather, their lives and mine. I enjoy hearing from them, but I am not always the best when it comes to keeping in contact. Times flies by much quicker than I realize sometimes. But, back to friends… I think this pictures says it all…..
