True friends share your joy and support you through your challenges
5 September 2018
The following is from the calendar ’12 simple things to remember all year long’ for the month of September:
“Friendship is a gift of commitment. It lives up to the expectation that each partner is there for the other through the ups and downs of life.
Friendship is a gift of trust. There is an understanding that with the exchange of hopes, dreams, joys, sorrows, and secrets, one can count on the other to keep a confidence.
Friendship is a gift of listening. It resists the temptation to give solutions to problems, and it understands that silent listening is one of the greatest acts of unconditional love.
Friendship is a gift of encouragement. It freely offers the inspiration needed to remain courageous in the face of life’s daily challenges.”
