Friends

Strangest thing isn't it. You sometimes don't even know that you have many. And when you're at your lowest point...they just happen to saunter in and take care of you...even when you thought that they didn't even exist.
Those are the best kind of friends.
Again reminds me a few things a wise man had written:
"Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years."

I feel I'm fortunate to have friends like that. Life is too small to lead alone. Its brilliant if you've got friends to share it with.

Value your friends. This is something I've learnt...and learnt the hard way. Its important that you respect people who care about you without wanting anything for themselves in return. Its seldom that you'll meet such people. When you find them...cherish them and treasure them. Its the best thing you'll ever find.
Friends are like the family you choose, not the one that you're born with. Here's something that same wise man wrote. (Quite an influential chap to me wasn't he?)
"The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof."
If you've found such family members, make sure you don't lose them.

Losing friends...very close friends is a tough thing...I've lost one...and this is something I remembered written by the same wise old man.
"Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends."

About time I introduced my wise friend eh? His name is Richard Bach, and he writes books. So yes...to take a point from my last post. Books always help!
