There’s nothing like a good friend to make the bumpy road of life feel smoother. Friends encourage one another, laugh together, tell each other the truth, and lighten the load by sharing life’s burdens. You double your joys and halve your sorrows when you share them with friends.

Have you been a good friend to others lately? Avoid being too involved in your own life to nurture friendship. Reach out and be a true friend. Take time, get involved, and cultivate caring friendships. Don’t become so busy that you don’t have time for friends.

Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.
