I Value Friendship Above Everything Else

    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...

    Above a great many things, certainly. Or, more accurately, I value loyalty and honesty in friendship.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    True Meaning of Friendship

    Its not about buying lunch  or cover for another when someone couldn't show up for work , its not about going to parties and set them up for dates and tell you who to date. its not about being too positive even when we know that are wrong.   A  friend is someone...

    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...
