I would like to share something I got from the ‘net about friendship.  Let it remind each one of us how we are as a friend to our friends, and our friends to us.  May it be inspiring and motivating to each one of us.


Enjoy reading, friends! 


The dictionary says:
Friend (frend) noun.

1. A person whom one knows, likes and trusts.
2. A person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; comrade.
3. One who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group.

4. An acquaintance.
            The dictionary makes one small omission:  It doesn't speak of the years that a friendship endures, the laughter that fills the air when friends are together, the support, understanding and comfort a friend can offer or the anguish you cannot escape from when a friend is dying.


            The dictionary, I'm afraid, cannot begin to define the word:


            So then what is this magic called Friendship?  Is there a magic wand that silently transforms you and
those special people on a journey into,
what sometimes can be a lifelong relationship?

            Is it mutual admiration, common interests, the need to be a friend?  Or is it just an enduring tie that bonds you together,
allows you to almost think as one and gives you one of life’s greatest joys.

Friendships are precious jewels.


Treat them as such.

Enjoy them!

Celebrate them! And never take them for granted.
