So many times we get so busy that we forget what is important in our lives. Work, money, and possessions have little meaning without friends. Friendship take time to develop. It's not an accident. Someone I admire greatly once said to me, "To have a friend, you must be a friend." Being a friend involes some risks. You open yourself up and there is a possibility of being "hurt". Friendship comes with trust and feeling safe. A friends is someone who loves you, encourages you, and stands by you in spite of all your faults. Friends are one of God greatest gifts. I am so blessed to have friends that care deeply about me. A few years ago, I thought it was too "risky" to reach out and build friendships. Now as I see the faces of my friends, I know friendship is one of the most important things in life.
