A friend loves at all times.
No birth certificate is issued when a friendship is born. But when it is forged life takes on new meaning: pleasure is increased; pain is diminished; life is enriched.
Our friends are always there for us, even when we’re separated by miles.
They accept us as we are—unconditionally.
Their opinion is biased in our favor. When they hear something good about us, they believe it; when they hear something bad, they don’t.
They delight in our victories and grieve over our defeats. They share our song and our sorrow, our life and our load.
They encourage us, affirm us, believe in us, care about us, love us.
But never judge us.
Between friends there is
no need for explanation.
