Friendship Thoughts

Friends are such special blessings in life.  
Here are some of my thoughts on true friends...
  • They have open and honest communication.
  • They laugh...a lot...
  • Friends are there for one another, no matter how busy they are.
  • They share in each other's celebrations and disappointments.
  • They provide support and care.
  • They reciprocate.  Friendship is not one-sided.
  • There is a freedom to talk openly without fear of judgement.
  • Friends protect each other.
  • They make each other smile.
  • They invest effort into each other's lives.
  • They consider each other's feelings.
  • Friends understand and support each other's unique quirks 
  • They forgive.
  • They pray for each other.
  • They make time for each other.
  • Friends believe the best in one another.
  • They take on burdens for each other.
  • They have inside jokes.
  • Friends give of themselves to one another each day.
  • They learn from one another.
  • Friends trust each other.
  • They honor each other's insecurities.
  • They give each other compliments.
  • Friends encourage each other.
  • They challenge each other to grow.
  • They never give up on each other.

Friends understand that friendship itself is one God's greatest blessings, never to be taken for granted.

I'm so thankful for true friends in my life.
