    It is priceless coz it is rare.

    ..how many times have we thought we had a true real friend and later realize this idea was far from the truth.How often a friend surprise you in such a way that makes you feel like family and demonstrate you he/she is there unconditionally,for good or for bad,no matter what...

    So,what R Friends (then) 4?

    This heading in a way reflects my thinking (or is it confusion) about modern ‘friendshps’ and what they could possibly stand for. Where do they start and, more important, where will it end? We often hear people say :”that’s what friends are for . .”. and it is obvious...

    Reveal values. There are few things of real

    value in life. Much of what we strive for is transitory or soon out of fashion. Love is the keenest interest for all, even if it's just self love. We all have our idiosyncrasies and we all seek to solve what troubles us in some way, even if it means just filing the problem away...

    Something A Friend Sent Me...

    No man is an island,

    so they say. I would have to agree. Over the years, I have deliberately reduced my social circle, in an attempt to mature slightly and curtail my party animal nature. I've done it so successfully now that whilst I still have several friends, I only confide in a very small number...

    Friends if they are true are like guardian

    angels. They have your back when you face a bad call. They have your heart to hold when you attend life's ball. They hold your hand when you seem unsure. They help you stand tall when you feel insecure. They carry you high when you can't seem to reach the sky. They hold you...

    My older son deligently worked his senior year

    of high school at a national grocery chain. Within four months, he was promoted and given a raise. Soon afterwards, he had saved up enough money for a sizeable down payment and had built up credit worthiness at the bank to buy his first newly used car (an Eclipse I'm envious of...

    Just How

    Just how would you define true friendship? Someone you talk to every day? Every week? Occasionally every other weekend or possibly someone you don't talk to for ages yet when you do talk - it's like you never left. It's like you and this person can pick up wherever you left off...

    A True Friend

    I should have known and perhaps I did but today I realised with great clarity that I have a true friend for life. She knows who she is so there is no need to announce it - it is something that is between only us. I lost someone dear to me today through cancer. Its been a...

    The Wingless Angel

    I have always had a deep fascination with Angels. From the dark chaos that was, well, 'life' i would stare up into my dreams and look at my perfect image of the night and imagine angels to be like stars; bright, ablaze, bewitching things that light up all my darkness. At a very...

    Friends when they are true are bits of Heaven

    in human form. They might not fit your mold. They might exact your norm. They are angels without wings. They listen when your heart sings. They carry you when you need to fly. They hold your hand and walk alongside when you are just getting by. Their smiles are the diamonds in...

    True Friendship Is A Priceless Treasure..

    Have you ever thought about the significance of friendship? Most likely you have a friend or two in your life right now, perhaps a dozen or more. Do you value them? I mean, do you truly value them? Many individuals call just about everyone they meet a friend. Does someone you...

    Prison Trust, An Officer And A Felon

    If I befriend him and am caught, the state will fire me. Twenty years of retirement gone. But I can not just walk away from the most humane thing that I have ever done. He is gone now, living in another prison. Communication in any form is forbidden. Is that enough to stop this...

    Friends that are true are in my opinion way

    more valuable than any monetary value can bestow on anything. You give your heart and you naturally expect them to give you theirs in return. The keys to our hearts unlock a safe that sometimes can be permanently welded so tight that it does not seem anything can break through...

    A Beautiful Friendship

    It's not a female surprisingly for the 1st time, I think it just took me awhile for me to realize he was the best friend, an epiphany as they call it. If there's one word to describe our friendship it would be loyalty. All along I was so used to a female's companionship since...

    Have you ever thought about the true price of friendship?  What would you give up for your friends?  I know that I value my friendships over anything else in my life so there is not much I wouldn't give up for a friend.
