The fellowship of true friends who can hear you out, share your joys, help carry your burdens, and correctly counsel you is priceless.
Ezra Taft Benson
Family and friends are precious people.
We have to remember what’s important in life: friends waffles and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.
Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation (As played by Amy Poheler)
When you run into a old friend you haven’t seen in awhile catching up can be fun and also a little painful. There is hope that this reunion can spur positive things for the future. Maybe there is an opportunity to share some much needed peace.
From what Google and Twitter say it’s Friendship Day and that’s cool. My view on this particular day which was founded in part by Joyce Hall of Hallmark Greeting Cards Company. The criticism is that it’s to sell and exchange greeting cards and other tokens of affection. You know what that would be fine with me. We need more expressions of love, affection and friendship these days.
We live in a mean world that needs softening up. Rediscovering tenderness and friendship is important to give us something to keep us going.
Personally I don’t have a best friend but many people I call friends. Those are people who you share a common view on life, you are there for one another when things get tough and people you can confide in. It’s important they are interested in you as a human being. I am blessed with a good family but there are extended family who I have chosen to be in my life. The one thing is that you hope as you are a good friend to others that they return the favor. Relationships need to be a two-way street to be successful and worth having.
If you can read this post and follow this blog I consider you a friend. Thanks for your friendship and tagging along.
I got this on my Facebook recently. After un-friending someone they seem to make you want to feel guilty for doing so. You can un-follow, meaning you won’t see their posts but you remain friends which I have done a lot lately. However you just need to disconnect from someone for your own reasons. I think Facebook has been a hotbed and a petri dish for political and religious discussion which is not always friendly. Passions run red hot there and sometimes disconnecting is what is best for relationships and online enjoyment. It is sad when you have to end a online connection but there are plenty more to make out there.
So, it’s Friends Day on Facebook. They have a cute video with a bunch of your pictures flying around in the form of a human being. Friends Day is celebrated on the fourth so they are getting a jump on things. So in honor of their thing there is this thing above.
