A true friend is worth believing in

A true friend is worth believing in

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you some time. You just got to find the friends worth suffering for.”—Bob Marley—

Why did you do all this for me?’ he asked, ‘I don’t deserve it, I’ve never done anything for you.’ ‘You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.”—E.B. White, “Charlotte’s Web”—

If someone is a friend, it is because they have something to offer that somehow pleases you. Friends exist in your life on many levels. Loyalty to your friends is important to you as well as to them.

If a friend offends or hurts you, or if they hurt themselves—if they run off into a ditch, so to speak—you have your choice to either help them or cut them loose. If the friend is a true friend, you do not have a choice in the matter, there is only one direction you can take.

Share a smile with as many friends as you can today.
Everything is going to be all right

A Silent Friend

Quotes and Notes #110, February 21

“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing…not healing, not curing…that is a friend who cares.”–Henri Nouwen

This is the description of a wonderful friend. Are you looking for a friend with these qualities? Instead of trying to find this friend, try more to be this friend. It’s kind of like sharing a smile—the ripples spread and spread and spread.

Visit or call a special friend today and tell them how wonderful they are. And, as usual, it doesn’t cost anything to share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
