A FRIEND is one with whom you have a mutual attachment. A FRIEND also is; a unquestionable TRUST, a confidant, a soul mate, an alliance, a bond, a mutual regard, devotion, good faith, understanding and generosity. This is why one is fortunate to be able to say they have several FRIENDS. A FRIEND gives those qualifications to you when you are in need.
When a FRIEND is out of touch for a short period, it is like a winter night with no stars and no moon. No book, or other time consuming process can replace the void of the FRIEND being away. There’s nothing that can replace an understanding nod, or a comforting smile that comes from a FRIEND.
It is not a weakness to be dependent on a FRIEND, it is a sign of being in harmony with an other. Having that harmony is an indication that you are living your life as the CREATOR would want you to. There is absolutely an element of VULNERABILITY to having a friend. To paraphrase Simon Sinek; THE BEST DEFINITION OF TRUST IS GIVING SOMEONE THE POWER TO DESTROY YOU AND TRUSTING THAT THEY WILL NOT USE IT.”
Being a FRIEND, and having a FRIEND is the most rewarding feeling that one could experience. It is a continuous life of rainbows, sunshine, starry lite full moon shine evening or wearing a cashmere sweater on a cool day. Even when there may be disagreement with a FRIEND, one can TRUST that there is the comfort of that person being your FRIEND
BE A FRIEND AND GIVE TO ANOTHER THE CONSTANT JOY AND REASSURANCE OF BEING WORTHY. BE A FRIEND AND TRULY ENJOY THE RETURN MAGNIFIED GREATLY. JUST BE SOMEONE’S FRIEND. ENJOY.
TAKE CARE AND STAY WELL

My dear and wonderful friend, this couldn’t have come at a better time or be more true and profound. Thank you for being my friend. 💜
Grateful to have a friend as loving and dear as you.
Dear Ron, Please excuse my tardiness, but my heartfelt words are sincere. There is rarely a day that I don’t feel blessed to consider you a friend. You have allowed me to know you.
