What Makes A Good Friend? Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style

I have pondered a lot lately on the many friends in my life that have meant so much to me...And during this past year, I have added friends that I have met via my blog.  What is it that makes a good friend?


A friend is someone who listens,
A friend is someone who cares.
A friend is someone who understands,
A friend is someone who shares.
It's nice to have a special friend
To tell all your secrets to.
It's nice to know that someone you like,
Is someone who really likes you.
A friend is someone you call on the phone
To talk about nothing at all.
A friend is someone who cheers you up.
And makes you feel ten feet tall.
Everyone would like to have
A special friend it's true
But if you want a special friend,
You need to be one, too.



If nobody smiled and nobody cared
and nobody helped us along.
If every moment looked after itself and
good things always went to the strong;
If nobody cared just a little about you
and nobody cared about me,
and we stood alone, in the battle of life,
what a dreary old world this would be
Life is sweet, just because of the friends we have made
and the things which in common we share,
We want to live on, not because of ourselves
but because of the people who care.
It is doing and giving for somebody else
on which all of life's splendor depends.
The joy of this world, when you've summed it all up
is found in the making of friends

    Many individuals go through life and never really know a true friend, sad to say. I have been blessed in my life to have had and still have some great individuals who I consider friends. Thanks for sharing this piece of information with all of us.

  2. You, dear Emily are a special friend...thanks!

  3. Erin ~ My new fishing friend...we will have more fun next year...without mishaps. ;)

    Bill ~ Yes, when you find a friend that you can trust and depend on and the feeling is mutual, it is quite the blessing!
