Friendship, a Gift;

Friendship is one of the greatest gifts we can receive. It is a bond beyond shared goals, common histories, or mutual interests. It is a bond stronger than shared experience or shared fate. It is not an automatic result of family relation or even marital commitment.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun. Charles R. Swindoll

Friendship is being with the other in joy and sorrow; even when we cannot increase the joy or decrease the sorrow. Walking the road together. It is a unity that gives honor and sincerity to love.

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity. Khalil Gibran
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over. Octavia Butler

Friendship makes all of life shine brightly. Blessed are those that lay down there life for their friends; self-sacrifice, generosity, empathy, serving, listening, assisting. Friendship, a gift.
