Being an only child, the absence of siblings creates a desire for connection with peers.
Then having moved around quite a bit, connections are lost when distance separates me from the friends I make.
So the few friends who maintain connection with me make me feel that I'm worth remembering, and worthy of their concern. They inspire me to be my best, and I"m pleased when I do things that deserve their commendation. In turn, I do and say what I can to make them know that I appreciate them. I'd say that friends influence me to recognize that we need each other; we grow in love, in character and in wisdom as we care for each other.
Friends are mixed at times between friendly and friendship. Friendships lean more to being genuine with a hint or more of love in the mix. The friendships I hold dear with respect, though some I have not seen for twenty years, continue to influence my life led by memory and virtues learned and shared. And, too, the demise of errors encountered with comradery.
Discovered together is wisdom while with meekness see humor with folly at later times of remembrance. Even though of that nature, they add to values that can be shared further. The friendships today continue to influence with adventures together. And, those friendships of past really live onward are are influential as guidance.
I have had good friends and some that felt more like enemies than friends. I've also had friends that were more supportive to me than family members. Friends teach us how to get along with people.
Today I am doing something for a friend whom i regarded as a sister because she has been consistently there at my darkest moments. For a friend like that I will go an extra mile to do anything good (not illegal) for her. She has showered me with gifts and my wardrobe and bookshelve bears the testimony of her deepest care. I regard that as a practical love without conditions and I have since been drawn to study what love is.
Spiritually love is the only law that demonstrate how mankind was designed to live: Love is key to optimal life! Love for all living things ensures of populations of all species. Even non-living things communicate love through our feelings. Love is indeed the revelation of the Creator!
Love is indeed the revelation of the Creator,Theresa you have refreshed my heart with those vibrant feelings.You are fortunate enough to have comraderie of a selfless friend.May God bless both of you and make it a reflection of His love.Thanks.
