    Friendship Is A Choice

    Friendship isn't always easily described. The Eskimos, they say, have a hundred different words for snow. Unfortunately, the English language isn't quite as innovative, though it has vast opportunities to differentiate meaning. Certainly, Love is one of those opportunities. And...

    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...

    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...

    Genuine

    I have many acquaintances, but very few true friends.  Acquaintances to me are failed attempts at friendship.  They are the people that are pleasant enough, but  I just can't find them to be genuine and trustworthy to move to the next level.  Some of those acquaintances were...
