what’s a friend to you?

i appreciate your words on true friendship. life without friends would be so empty. to not be friends because you are different is so limiting. you have a wonderful mind. i love your writing. the post above this one that you wrote regarding the shooting tragedy in colorado was thoughtful and beautiful. i’d like to reblog this one on friendship and i think i will post something regarding the people who had to endure such a tragedy. these posts are both so meaningful. thank you. jennifer kiley

One thought on “what’s a friend to you?

  1. i have been fortunate to find true friendship in my adult life. without these people life would be so empty. i feel i need to share my life with good people in it and wonderful animals, too. i love them all and i try to let them know this. why would i want to keep my feelings a secret? i am learning about love through my friendships. it is unconditional and supportive and giving and caring. i feel, also, that i need to be honest and direct. as the title of this post that i reblogged asks: “what is a friend to you? leave a reply if you so desire. i would love to hear what you think and feel about this question. jennifer
