In our lifetime we meet many people and some of them become our very best friends. There are many ways of meeting people who can become our friends: we can meet at school, at an extra-curricular activity, like Ballet Class, Football practice, Swimming Class, etc., we can meet through mutual friends, we meet at the playground, and so on.

However, some friends will be our friends for only a moment, or for a month, or for a year, or for a lifetime…if we are lucky.

Friendship is a beautiful thing. I currently have several very close friends that I can actually consider my family, because we have been friends for more than 50 years! Now that is a very long time and feel very fortunate to have them.

When you are older and are able to travel you can also meet people in other states or other countries that can become your friends.

“Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.” — Tennessee Williams

Friends however, can uplift you or they can bring you down. It is very important to choose friends wisely.

“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” — Amy Poehler

As we grow older we find that the most important things in life cannot be bought, and true friendship is one of them. Treasures cannot be compared to the joy a true friend brings. A true friend is someone with whom we can laugh, cry, share our dreams, be sad or be happy, be ourselves, and is always loyal.

“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.” — G. Randolf

In the animal species we find that friendships are made between animales who are completely different one from the other, and if they can be friends, imagine what kind of friendships we humans can build amongst ourselves!

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
– C.S. Lewis

Friends with whom you can laugh yourselves silly are a rare find. But, remember, never laugh AT anyone!

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched — they must be felt with the heart.” — Helen Keller
