About Friendship

If there is one ingredient which adds
warmth and love to our lives…
it is friendship.

If there is one relationship to help
us through all the others…
it is friendship.

Friends surround us with the beauty
of their caring. With friends we can
share what we see, what we feel,
and what we love.

Friends help us with our problems
because they listen. And as they listen
we begin to hear the language of…
our own hearts.

With friends we can walk along the
remembered paths of our lives and
completely share our experiences.

With friends we can work the soil of
forgotten dreams that needed to be
tended and nurtured once again.

With friends we can plant the seed
of our hearts new dreams.

We can always return to a friend like
going back to a special place…
and find the same warm feeling
unchanged by time or distance.

Life gives us friends so we can share
the precious times and memorable moments
of being children, and teenagers,
and adults, and parents and grandparents.

Life gives us friends so we can share
the growing up…and growing down and old.

With friends we have a place to go to be
accepted and understood.
Together we can laugh.
Together we can cry.
Our thoughts are heard,
our feelings are held
in the heart of a friend.

With friends our lives are made
more full, more rich, more open,
beautiful and blessed!
