More about friendship

To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart.

  Anger is only one letter short of danger.

If someone betrays you once, it's his/her fault; If he/she betrays you twice, it's your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.

God gives every bird it's food, but he does not throw it into it's nest.

  He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses more; He who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.

   Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

    The tongue weighs practically nothing, but so few people can hold it.



A friend is someone we turn to, when our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone we treasure, for our friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives, with beauty, joy, and grace. And makes the world we live in, a better and happier place.


Friendship is a strange thing....we find ourselves telling each other the deepest details of our lives...things we don't even share with our families who raised us...But what is a friend? A confidant? A lover? A fellow email junkie? A shoulder to cry on? an ear to listen? a heart to feel?...A friend is all these things...and more. No matter where we met,....I call you friend. A word so small...yet so large in feeling...a word filled with emotion. It is true great things come in small packages.

Once the package of friendship has been opened, it can never be is a constant book always written...waiting to be read...and enjoyed

We may have our disagreements...we may argue...we may concern one another... friendship is a unique bond that lasts through it all.... A part of me is put into my friends...some it is my humor...some it is my listening ear...some it is real life experiences...some it is my romanticism...but with all, it is friendship. Friendships forged are a construct stronger than steel built as a foundation....necessary for life...and necessary for love. :-)

    Friends, you and me.... you brought another friend... and then there were 3... we started our group... Our circle of friends... and like that circle... there is no beginning or end.

A Friend

Accepts you as you are
Believes in "you"
Calls you just to say "hi"
Doesn't give up on you
Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts)
Forgives your mistakes
Gives unconditionally
Helps you
Invites into his/her heart
Just because
Keeps you close at heart
Loves you for who you are
Makes a difference in your life
Never Judges
Offers support
Picks you up
Quiets your fears
Raises your spirits
Says nice things about you
Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
Understands you
Values you
Walks beside you
Yells at you when you won't listen and
Zaps you back to reality
May we always be "good buddies"
May we always be "good friends"
and may our friendship be the kind
that will never end.
