You know the quality of a friend in the moments you have least to offer.
He can pick you up, clean, feed and hold you or he can close the dumpster.
It is very easy to be friends with someone with a nice home and car, large swimming pool and a fridge full of beer. It is easy to be friends with someone that always pleases you and brings you a certain status, benefits, easy talks, give and take, a shallow but satisfying, light approach.
It is not easy to get your hands dirty and put up with the ugly sides (or moments) of someone. Not easy to face someone’s pain and have the patience to sit beside him in silence, or even lay down on the ground with him for a while, just so he knows you understand (or not) and he is not alone. That’s what makes a real friend. That’s how you know what kind of a friend you have got, what kind of a friend you are.
It’s easy to wiggle the tale.
But it’s the silent healing friendship that counts and makes a difference.
Cat love is not shown but felt.
No fuzz nor advertisement.
It is just there.
