    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...

    Away Or Towards

    "When things are good, people look good, but when things get rough - who runs away from & who runs towards us?"   YBI have always been very close to my friends. Since I left home, and because I studied Hotel Management, I have lived far from Mexico City, where I am from. The...

    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...

    Genuine
