A True Friend

“False friends are like our shadow, close to us while we

walk in the sunshine, but  leaving us the instant we

cross into the shade.”

Christian Nestee Bovee 1820 – 1904, New York Writer


As I see it . . . . . . .

A true friend


A true friend will walk with you . . . . on a sunny day.


A true friend will walk with you . . . . on the cloudy days in your life.


A true friend will offer you there hand . . . . when you slip.


A true friend will be there . . . . to catch you when you fall.


A true friend will . . . . not get in your way.


A true friend will . . . . lead you out of challenging conditions.


A true friend will . . . . be there when you get off track.


A true friend will . . . . will help you without being asked.


Thousands of people come in and out of your life . . .  but it’s that one true friend that makes the difference.


To have a true friend in your life, you will have to be a true friend.

Hi Lou - it's during the tough times, when  you discover those who are truly friends.   Great quote.

It is not easy to find a friend like this Lou and so we need to acknowledge their bounty when we are nurtured by it.

Lou I will never forget, my father was young and he was in a high powered position before many would have expected him to be....then it looked like he was going to get a demotion....for three months....80% of his fake friends started bad mouthing that no wonder he was demoted because he was too young and arrogant...Ironically he got a higher position on the fourth month....and my father realized who his real friends were....so this post really touches home for me.... all is missing is add Facebook friends to it:)),Endre

 Good morning Lou. I remember my dad telling me something very similar to this many years ago. A great example of this is MC Hammer. I guess it was fun while the money lasted.

Lou, True friends are rare.  They're the ones you can call up after 25 years and pick up right where you left off.  You're lucky if you have a true friend.
