The Importance of Friendship

I have some of the most wonderful friends in the world.  I feel truly blessed to have such loving and caring people in my life, both face to face and online.  

Friendship is such a treasure...something that you cannot just put a price on.  True friends will be there through thick and thin, and when everyone else gives up on you, your real friends never do.  

The beauty about friendship is that we can choose our friends.  Although some are blessed with a wonderful, loving family, others are not.  Family is something that we are born into (except in the case of adoptions).  

Friendship is something that is very important to me.  As for myself, I have no family.  My parents both died within a year of each other in 1983 and 1984 and I am an only child.  I am divorced with no children.  

I may not be as "good" at expressing myself and/or putting my feelings and thoughts into words as some,  but I  

My friends are very important to me and I appreciate them so much.  Thank you all.

  1. When you have no family left it is important to have a network of friends to help. I have friends that I've known my entire life and friends that have entered my life fairly recently. I know that I do consider you a friend. Feel free to share your joys, worries, or anything that is on your mind because friends can talk about anything.

  2. Thank you for commenting my blog - from Over there :-)

Please do not be shy! I appreciate your kind comments, they are sweet treasures and really make my day! Spammers, do not waste your time, I delete your comments and they do not even show on my blog. Comment moderation is enabled. I do hope that Blogger's changes in the way of proving that you are not a robot do not deter you from commenting! Thank you so much! If you have Google+ and are only allowing Google+ users to comment on your blog, I do not have, nor do I want it. And if you use DISQUS for accepting comments on your blog I don't have that, either, nor do I want it. Thanks!
