A sign I saw recently said: Autumn, a time to harvest friendships.
I have noticed that you and your Mom are quite a bit alike when it comes to making friends. Each of you has a world of friends. This is indeed a good thing. In fact, your willingness to make friends says more about your character and wise choices in life than practically anything else in this world. Many of your friends will likely be your friends forever.
Throughout your life, develop friendships. Friends will help you through difficult times without judging you.
A good definition of a friend that I have read: They see right through you, but still like the view!
