What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies. ~ Aristotle
Friendships, like family, can be difficult at times. But as with family, even through difficult times, love remains.
I used to think that it takes two to make a friendship, but I have another take on that. If someone chooses not to be my friend for whatever reason, I can still choose to be a friend to that person because I care.
If you’ve ever had a bestest best friend in your life you are blessed. If you’ve had more than one true friend, you are very blessed. I am very blessed.
If I had a flower 🌹 for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever. ~ Alfred Tennyson
I hope my friends know just how much I love them. I wouldn’t trade the friends I have in my life for all the chocolate in the world. I mean, money.
It wasn’t always that way though. In my younger years I was burnt on occasion by individuals who disregarded the sanctity of the friendship bond and broke trusts. I’m sure you can relate. Those friends were self-serving with no idea of what friendship means. I carried those pains with me over the years only to realize as I got older, that they themselves were the ones injured and suffering. Not because of anything I did so I can’t take it personal. Once in awhile, I run into one of those former friends and I embrace her. I no longer feel the hurt. Some say I forgive and forget too easily. Personally, I think it’s what we are supposed to do.
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for. ~ Bob Marley
Friendships are one of the greatest gifts on this earth. I hope you have a couple of really great people in your life. People who you can depend on with mutual respect and trust.
I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff. ~ Jon Katz
Have a wonderful weekend. Maybe a great weekend shared with a friend or two. ♥️
I wanted to post pictures of my closest of friends but I don’t have pictures of all of them. So I didn’t. I have both male and female friends who are very close to me. I am truly blessed. ♥️
