Friendship is.......

Friendship is crystal clear water falling into a pool
Friendship is the snow sparkling like diamonds in the morning sun.
Friendship is a big cup of coffee laden with cream
Friendship is a phone call out of the blue saying you're coming to visit.
Friendship is never never minding how often I call, or the other way round when it's you in pain.
Friendship is asking someone to visit you've never met and trusting that it will work.
Friendship is a surprise email just to say I'm thinking of you.
Friendship is making sure I know that you mean what you say.
Friendship is something I couldn't live without
Friendship is a star bright in the sky on a clear night.
Friendship is seeing the moon and knowing that it shines on you wherever you are.
Friendship is holding magic in our hearts and memories of time together.
Friendship is a hug when we're feeling blue.
Friendship is being there for each other come what may.
And being there till our dying day.

Friendship just is and it's what makes my world go round.
And it's being old and wise enough to say I love you because your my friend

Let me makesure I know what you mean when yo say, "friendship is asking someone to visit you've never met before."

Is this an invitation?
Or can it be considered the out of the blue notification that I'm coming to visit?

I'd love to see the moon from your neck of the woods, not to mention the waterfalls and sparkling snow.

I agree, friends are what makes the world go round. Funny, I was just realizing most of my friends are blog friends. Not sure what this says about me. Obviously I don't get out enough.

Thanks for your sharing your gifts, especially the friendship one.

I have been thinking a lot about friendship in recent months. I have found out that I have some very good friends some are incredible even if their actions have been anonymous.

I have also been trying to be as good a friend as I can be to my friends.

your words are lovely

Paula said...

Yepp all of that and more. Over the last few months I started to redefine friendship what they mean to me and what I can give and take. There one picture I love: a friend is someone you sit on the swing with - silently - and when he leaves you know you have had the best conversation ever.
Thanks for being on the swing with me
