Top 2 Tuesday

This is my first T2T in a really long time! Why? I have no idea. I love Taylor and her themes each week. Join in!

This week's theme...
Top 2 Things You've Learned About Friendship

1. People aren't always who you think they are. This last year, I learned so much about people in my life. I really thought a few of them were true, life long friends but really...they were just looking out for themselves. It's hurtful and embarrassing to me, honestly. I feel like I was taken advantage of and forgotten. Ugh. Nasty. I've also been pleasantly surprised with how true a few friends are. You know who you are and your support means the WORLD to me.

2. Friends can be any age. Some of my best friends have always been my students. It seems as one group graduates, another group steps up and takes over. They are invaluable to me! I enjoy the laughter, stories and general miscellany that results from teaching and working with them each week. I love when something happens in their lives and they need to tell me all about it. I love to get texts about a good grade, winning a track meet, etc. It is a great type of friendship!

What have you learned??

Your blog title is so catchy! I danced at a studio here in Alabama for 17 years and miss it everyday!!! Love the quote up top, and love #2. Age truly is just a number!!

I agree one of my best friends is 10 years younger than me :)

Aww, sounds like you have some awesome friends in your life :-) I totally agree that age is just a number! One of our best couple friends are our neighbors and they're my parents' age! And speaking of parents, they're my BFFs too ;-)
