Fact Eighty-five

I make friends easily.
I like having friends.
Being a good friend is important to me.
"The ABC's of Friendship"

A real friend...

Accepts you as you are
Believes in you
Calls you just to say "hi"
Doesn't give up on you
Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts)
Forgives your mistakes
Gives unconditionally
Helps you without reservation
Invites you over for no particular reason
Just to be with you
Keeps you close at heart
Loves you for who you are
Makes a difference in your life
Never gives up on you
Offers support
Prays for you regularly
Quiets your fears
Raises your spirits
Says nice things about you
Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
Understands you
Values your input
Walks beside you
X-plains things you don't understand
Yells when you won't listen
Zaps you back to reality

A man that hath friends must show himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
-Proverbs 18:24

A Friend Is...
A friend is someone we turn to
When our spirits need a lift,
A friend is someone we treasure
For our friendship is a gift,
A friend is someone who fills our lives
With Beauty, Joy, and Grace
And makes the world we live in
A Better and Happier Place.
