We’ve all discovered that friends sometimes play an even more important role in our lives than our families.

And? Some friendships come and go, but others, are forever. The really important ones become life-long relationships that we can cherish.

We found this writing as the essence of how a true friend impacts our ability to be with sorrow, joy, anger and happiness.


Thank You For Being My Friend

When things are confused
I discuss them with you
Until they make sense

When something good happens
You are the first person I tell
So I can share my happiness

When I don’t know what to do in a situation
I ask your opinion
And weigh it heavily with mine

When I am lonely
I call you
Because I never feel alone with you

When I have a problem
I ask for your help
Because your wisdom helps me to solve it

When I want to have fun
I want to be with you
Because we have such a great time together

When I want to talk to someone
I always talk with you
Because you understand me

When I want truth about something
I call you
Because you are so honest

It is so essential
To have you in my life
Thank you for being my friend
