Quality vs. Quantity


The older that I get (and I am really not THAT old I just wish I could stay 30 forever), I realize more and more that quality wins almost always hands down over quantity.  I am sure that I am not the only one who realizes this.  But let me explain this in my life terms.  Mainly this is in regards to people in my life.  The more time goes by the more I realize that its okay if I don’t have a bazillion and one friends, but if I have a select few and I mean count them on one hand so to speak that I know 100% without a doubt I can count that is what matters.  The quality of these friendships is so wonderful that they simply last a lifetime.  Heck some of them began ein lementary school and some in adult hood but when they start doesn't matter.  What matters is they started.  No matter what life brings, where we live, who we marry, how many kids we have or how long it has been since we talked (a week, a day or two months) it doesn't matter.  I know that I can call any one of these friends, talk about anything, they will listen, give advice wanted or not, cry with me, laugh with me and not judge me.  They love me for me and that’s that.  These are way more important that the millionth and two friend who was just super sweet to your face and then turned around and blabbed all your business and then some to whoever walks by.  These quality friendships are the ones I want to nurture and grow and I look forward to seeing the journey that life takes us on.  Love you friends!!
