Motivational Power Quote


A True Friend   

"In prosperity our friends know us,

in adversity we know our friends."

John Churton, Colliers Inc.


As I see it. . . . . . . .

A true friend  

There are friends in our lives and there are true friends the difference between the two are worlds apart.  

We all have friends and in times of prosperity we seem to attract even more in to our lives. They are there to enjoy the good times and to revel in the success along with us.  

As long as everything is going well they are there. But in the storms of adversity come into our life they will run for cover and leave us standing the weather the adversity by ourselves.  

That type of friend is a fair weather friend and someone that we will most likely not to be able to count on.  

The test of a true friend is not found in times of prosperity but on the bumpy road of adversity. A true friend will stand with you in your time of success and be there to support you in your time of adversity.  

True friends are priceless and a valued resource in our life.    

A true friend brings a special value into our lives like others are not able to do. They offer us a listening ear, a helping hand and they seem to know when we need a push. They also seem to be there at just the right moment and come up with just the right thing to say.  

Everyone needs a true friend in their life someone that they can count on. The best way to attract true friend into your life is to be true friend to others.

Lou - So very true!  My husband and I use to joke every time we moved because our "true" friends where there even though they didn't want to be.

In prosperity everyone wants to be your "friend" but in adversity only "true friends" still want to be in the group. Hannah summed up that group correctly!

It is always good to know who your true friends are. They are the ones that seem to be standing right beside you, even though you are located many miles apart.  It is great to have that friend, but even better to be that friend, indeed!  - Jennifer the IHI Home Inspections Girl
