Fifth Week of August-A Friend

The older I get the more I realize life is about relationships. For most our closest relationships are family. After family we have friends. My father told me years ago a person is fortunate if he has one friend. A  friend  continues as a friend through thick or thin, good times or bad times.

When we have not seen a friend for a period of time and we reunite it is like we never were apart. A friend is not judgmental. A friend accepts us for who we are. To a friend it does not matter if we are successful in the eyes of others. What matters is we are who we are without pretense.

I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my  friends. For my part I will do my best to be a friend and thereby make life better for the person who calls me their friend.
