I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff. – Jon Katz
Friendship is probably the only relationship in the whole world that is accepted as is and doesn’t need to be authenticated by law or otherwise, unlike most other relationships.
It does not differentiate between the rich and the poor , the literate and illiterate , the old and the young or the good and the bad. Perhaps the reason why Voltaire chose to describe friendship as ‘The Marriage of the soul’ is because it’s the only bond that cuts across species even!
We all have friends, good friends and that one best friend who makes our life worth living. We also have those friends who are no longer our friends – those that we purposely allowed to drift away because of some silly fight, or momentary anger or whatever..
Friendship day is a time to enjoy this beautiful bond, forgive past mistakes, let go of pointless anger, put a smile on our friends’ faces, and maybe, try to get back in touch with that friend who we let drift off for silly reasons? Let us celebrate our friends and good friends, and feel really blessed and thankful to god for that Best Friend who lights up our world.
