    The Phenomenon Of Loving

    Sometimes it hits me, at just a random time of the day; how can we love people so much?  Unlike the way you choose your friends, you don't choose who to love.  Sure maybe in the beginning you decide to trust them, decide to get closer to them; to get to know them.  Yet when...

    Friendship Is A Choice.

    Because I was never blessed with brothers and sisters, I value my friends so much because friendship is by choice and not a given.  My longest friendship started when I moved here from another state.  I met a lovely woman who became my friend for over thirty years...

    Friends..

    I love my friends. next to God and my family, they're one of my greatest treasures. I believe in taking friendships seriously. I've never approached someone just because, or to make an acquaintance or casual friends with them. I don't believe in that. I believe that you should...

    Genuine
