ahh….friends…

Spending time with our friends is one of the greatest joys we can have in our life.  Our friends can be our pillars of strength and can support us when we need comfort, cry with us when we need a shoulder  and laugh with us when we feel happy.

A beautiful and fragile relationship, here are some pictures of true friends….makes you feel…….well, let’s just look at how we enjoy each other’s company………

Let’s grab a cup of coffee, friend!

Hey, let’s meet for dinner, friend!

Hey, friend!  Wanna go to the museum?

Who wants to spend time together at the beach?

I like you, let’s go on a date

Oh, our  friendship is so important. Maybe you could call me and we could talk about our close relationship….or I guess you could text me….. Let’s try to re-connect  real soon……

sand or stone?

My good friend, Rea sent me this…..

 TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING  
THROUGH THE DESERT .  
DURING SOME POINT OF THE
JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE  
THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED  
WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING,
WROTE IN THE SAND  
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND  
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE 
THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A BATH  
THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,
BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.
AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE NEAR DROWNING,
HE WROTE
ON A STONE:  
‘TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SAVED MY LIFE’  
THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM, ‘AFTER I HURT YOU,
YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,
YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?’
THE FRIEND REPLIED
‘WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN
IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.      
BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES  SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,
WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT’
That’s the kind of friend I want….and want to be!
