Why do you ask? Because they are. True friends are rare and they are very hard to come by. I, myself, don't have many friends so my true friends are even fewer. They might be the only friends that I really do have to be honest. Crazy part about it is that we're all not centralized in one location together; I kind of like to believe that my friendships with my true friends are global sometimes; yeah, global.
The friends that I do have are very important to me. They have a serious impact on my outlook and my life. They also keep me very humble. They uplift me when I am down, they encourage me when I need it, they protect me when I'm in danger, and they promote me without ever being asked to. My accomplishments are theirs, just like theirs are mine. There are many other things that they do, but those are just a few examples.
Lately, one of my best friends has been promoting me in her blog; it's in the beginning stages, but it's very neat and very creative. She also went and purchased EVERY published work that I have out there! I think that's pretty amazing when you sit down and think about it. It seriously was enough to make me cry, but it definitely kept a smile on my face, that's for sure. I'm thankfully blessed to have people like her in my life and in my corner because sometimes that's what a person needs to push forward with their dreams; as much as I dream, I know I definitely need that encouragement.
Anyway, here is a link to her new blog: http://amberrocksawesome.wordpress.com
Check it out when you can and if you like it, join and leaves comments. I know she would love to have you :')
