How do you value friendship?
January 25, 2009 1:42am CST
We all have a handful of acquaintances--those people with whom we work or see at the store and casually say hello to and move on. But a friend is someone you confide in, bring over for an afternoon cup of coffee, invite to your wedding, or cry with when a loved one passes away. You just feel a sense of safety with a friend. Don't wait until a rainy day to express how much a good friend means to you. Often we are unaware of how much we mean to others until they speak up, and likewise we never know how much another person might truly need to hear such affirmations. An approving, cheerful word of encouragement can thrill a heart. Be sure to always say kind words before you part, show sympathy during hard times and affection during wonderful ones. Life would not be the same without positive friendships. Express your gratitude to someone today who has made a difference in your world!

Hi Msedge, This is so very true, we met and know many people in life but have only a few true friends and we should let them know how much we do appreciate that. I have been blessed with some very good friends and one I have known since I was five years old so we really can share everything as we experienced so much growing up together. Some has been lost along the way but they came into my life of me their perhaps just for a season but made a difference within that time. Huggles. Ellie :D
