True Friendship Comes in All Shapes and Sizes

"Your friend is the one who knows all about you, and still likes you."
- Elbert Hubard

"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out."
-Walter Winchell

Friendship is defined as the cooperative and supportive relationship between two or more people. It’s the center of our lives because it builds upon our hopes and dreams. In some ways, true friendships are stronger and more fulfilling than family relationships. You are very lucky to have one really “true” friend that you can count on when times are good, and when times are bad.

It’s easy to think about great friends. It’s those genuine souls that make you laugh, share great times, and to grow wiser with age and wisdom. Remember back when there was a specific time that you couldn’t have made it through without the support of your friends? Was it illness, grief, marriage, divorce, new job, or a memorable trip? Past memories and looking forward to the future can’t be underestimated in the value of a true friendship.

A shared or favorite activity boosts friendship to a higher level. Laughter, humor, and fun go hand in hand. It lifts the spirits and allows for growth and understanding to bloom. It should be passed on to others at every opportunity. You never know when or how a great friendship will thrive, but it’s a wonderful gift that can’t be taken for granted. Sometimes the most unlikely person becomes a true, life long friend.

Take a moment and think of a good friend that you’ve not spoken to in a while. Pick up the phone and call them – just for the heck of it. That’s the beautiful thing about friends, when you get back in touch it seems like there hasn’t been any time that has passed.

“I get by with a little help from my friends.”
-John Lennon
