“How have you been lately?”

August 10, 2007


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.

    when you think you’re alone in this world, think again. there are actually people out there thinking of you, just you didn’t know. so keep a positive outlook, no matter what your heart is telling you. take good care!

    It was nice talking to you the other night, Gab.
    You need to take care of yourself & be positive too..

    sadly, i do sometimes feel guilty of neglecting good friends…just so absorbed in things happening to my own life sometimes. i’m just grateful that most of my friends are understanding and i try to catchup whenever i can. thank gawd for emails, msn, etc

    I’m very grateful to you for your kind support & friendship, Ttpah. πŸ™‚

  25. Friends are like stars:
    1. They burn your butt if you sit on them?
    2. They make movies and play music?
    3. Big balls of hot gas?
    4. Mozart writes variations on them?
    5. They have points and if they poke you in the eye it hurts?

    Errrr.. none of the above, Dabs. πŸ˜›

  26. LB Says:

  28. Oh I’m glad to hear. I’ve been afraid to sit on a friends lap in case it burnt my bottom off … of course, I have the fat there to burn, but still, I don’t want the blisters! πŸ™‚

    Dabs, I am trying hard not to imagine it. πŸ˜›

  29. u-jean Says:

    sometimes when you have time for friends, your friends might not have time for you.
    sounds sad but true

    Welcome, U-jean. πŸ™‚

    Such is life. Hence, the existence of the word ‘sad’.

  30. stev Says:

    “Friends like you are rare & few,
    Like a perfect golden daffodil;
    Friends like you are hard to find,
    Thus finding you makes life divine”

    When you need a friend…
    There’s always coffee πŸ˜‰

    That’s a lovely poem, Stev. πŸ™‚
    Is it an original? πŸ˜›

    Coffee??? That sounds great. πŸ˜‰
