June 1st - be a friend

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.

Henry Ford

Friends come in all shapes and sizes.  A true friend likes you , flaws and all.  They know what to say and more importantly, when to say nothing at all.  You count  on them to always be there for you.  Being there for friends makes you feel needed and adds purpose to your life.  

Friendshis have an impact on your mental health and happiness.  Good friends relieve stress, provide comfort and joy, and prevent loneliness and isolation.  Developing close friendships can also have a powerful impact on your physical health.  Friends are even tired to longevity.  Maintaining a network of friends can add years to your life.Spending time with happy and positive friends can elevate your mood and boost your outlook.

A friend is someone you can trust and with whom you share a deep level of understanding and communication.  Bottom line if the friendship fees good, it is good.  A good friend does not require you to compromise your values , but always agrees with them, Most friends have common values and interests.  The friends I have were made when my children were young and have been around for many years. Our children may have brought us together in the beginning, but other common interests have kept us together.I’m so thankful for my friends, both the ones I see in person and the ones I’ve met through the internet.  They make me a better person.

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.

Oh, what a gift to have good friends. And too, how different folks bring different gifts to the table. Interesting, because my BFF and I share few interests -- yet we've clicked since back in the 1980's. We still enjoy long phone conversations on the first of every month.
Thank YOU for being a friend, Ma!
