Be a true friend. Care, make a difference – where it counts. There is always room in our hearts for another true friend, always.

But I have no friends“, you say. Then go help someone. Help several someones, but help because you want to. Set no conditions, no requirements.

You’ll discover friendship along the way. And when friends come, nurture the relationship. Share, care and be there!

It will become a true friendship.

Know there are those who will use your friendship, taking advantage of your good will. Do not be discouraged for they do not really understand.

Help those, as you can, with good intent. They will be the ones who decide the direction your friendship will take.

And always remember

“The thing about true friendship is the absolute truth that flows from the heart. No exceptions. It just is.” ~Plh

Friendship … A Great Elixir for Happiness!

“The thing about shared friendships is the absolute love that flows from within and without one’s own heart. No exceptions. It just is.” ~ Plh

*Friendship, the ties that bind us ~ one to another ~ cannot be overstated. Every single one of us needs friends. Every single one of us needs to be a friend – to as many as is feasible. At a distance or close up, it makes not a difference. A friend is a friend is a friend.

Being a true friend is caring, encouraging, making a difference – as you can – where it counts. And there is always room in our hearts for another friend, always.

But I have no friends“, you say. Then go help someone in need. Step out of your own, self imposed but lonely, comfort zone. Help several someones, but help because you want to. Set no conditions, no requirements and you’ll discover friendship along the way.

And as friends come along, nurture these relationships. Share, care and be there! Some will become true friendships.

Know there are those who will use your friendship by taking advantage of your good will. Do not be discouraged for they do not really understand.

Help others as you can with good intent. They will be the ones who decide the direction your friendship will take.

Always remember … “a friend in need is a friend indeed” – Be there!

*Also an additional bonus: It greatly increases the potential for giving and receiving caring hugs! And today hugs are needed more than ever!

I had written this post a year ago and decided to share it once again (with a few changes). Thanks for stopping by, hoping your weekend is going well for you.

Family, Friends and others that are important.

Those that matter – that would be all of us!

Those we think about the most – those nearest and dearest to us.

Those we miss – the one’s no longer here for us to love and cherish (but we do have our wonderful memories, no one can take those away).

Those that matter – every single one of us.

Those that do make a difference – there are more than you might think.

Those that really care – many, many more than you might think.

Those that we love and acknowledge as important and special in our lives – our family, our friends, people making a difference – YOU!

Why does this matter –  because we need each other, all of us, every day. To fill in the missing pieces, shore up the weak areas, support, laugh with, share, guide, be there. To make that needed difference, to encourage, to applaud, to be there in those moments. You know when.

And so, on this, my Thursday morning, I thank you – you are one of the important people in my life and … you matter to ME!

Have a great rest of your week and enjoy the weekend ahead. Stay cool, hang out, chill, create! Do-do that voodoo that you do so well – all my wonderful loving and caring friends!
