Friends are the people in our lives who we spend time with eating,laughing,playing and dancing. These relationships allow us to be different than we are when we are with family. The expectations are different. Friends are usually the same age and are going through the same life changes together. Whether you are going to school, looking for a job, or getting married, we always have our friends to lean on. That is the way it should be. But how many of us make our friends feel as though they have something worthwhile in them when they do not believe they are going to make it themselves? It is hard to be there day after day after day for someone who is having a hard time figuring out how to put it all together. The benefits of sticking with someone in their hour of need far outweigh leaving them behind. Give them ways to help themselves and remind them that they can do it. It may be your turn one day to benefit from the continued support of a friend!

Give more service than is required and it will be returned to you tenfold!!
