So I heard this song on the radio today and t just seemed to sum up how I try to be there for my friends (and family). I've often said, "I don't have to agree with what they are doing, to be there to love and support the person they are." So here it is:
P.S. Sorry about the spacing. It's driving me crazy!
Find Out Who Your Friends Are Tracy Lawrence Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere
Or get yourself in a bind lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare
This is where the rubber meets the road
This is where the cream is gonna rise
This is what you really didn't know
This is where the truth don't lie{Chorus}
You find out who your friends are
Somebody's gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get there fast
Never stop to think 'what's in it for me?' or 'it's way too far'
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who your friends are
Everybody wants to slap your backwants
to shake your handwhen you're up on top of that mountain
But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down
look up and see who's around then
This ain't where the road comes to an end
This ain't where the bandwagon stops
This is just one of those times when
A lot of folks jump off
{Chorus}When the water's high
When the weather's not so fair
When the well runs dry
Who's gonna be there?
{Chorus}You find out who your friends are(yeah, yeah)
You find out who your friends are
Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere(Well man, I've been there)
Or get yourself in a bind lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare(Man, I've been there)
Man, I've been there
Oooh yeah.

I was quite struck with that song as well when I heard it. Speaking of song (though completely unrelated) I heard for the 1st time S.C. Chapman's song Cinderella,(his new adoption song) which is very moving and heart breaking given the loss of his youngest. You should try to hear it if you haven't.
