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

Laugh at your fears

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”–Khalil Gibran

When I was a very small child, I ran to my mother crying and afraid in the middle of a thunderstorm. She said, “Don’t be afraid, it’s only thunder,” and she took me out on the front porch to watch the storm. We sat in the swing and when it thundered again, we slapped our legs and forced a laugh. When it thundered once again, we laughed, but the laugh was not forced, it was genuine. This I remember, sixty-six years later. Now, the thunder often comes in many disguises and I still slap my knee and laugh at it. Laughter is life’s greatest medicine and Man’s greatest weapon. Go out today and share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
