Those of us who are a certain age understand the value of a good friend. And if you have those true friends, treat them like a precious flower that needs nurturing and lots of sunshine to thrive.

Motivational Power Quote


Value Your Good Friend

“False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine; but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.”

Christian Nestell Bovee 1820 – 1904, author


As I see it . . . . . . .

Value your good friends


Good friends are amazing people they never seem to ask much from us . . . . and yet they will stand at your side when we need them without being asked.


A good friend will encourage you . . . . lend you a helping hand and a listening ear.


At times you underestimate the value of their friendship and what they bring into the relationship and into your life. They should be valued . . .  . like the precious resource that they are.


Some of your friendships will have a strong bond you that will last a lifetime . . . . and there will be a mutual benefit in the relationship. While other relationships, will be like ships passing in the night . . . . a brief encounter as they sail away in difference direction.


You will know who your good friends are by all the things that they do for you without asking for something in return.


Strengthen your relationships with your good friends. Clear a wide path away from the people who are only around you . . . . when they think that they can get something from you and then head for the doors when they think they can’t.


Value your good friends  . . . .  They can’t be measured by money, and their far more valuable then precious metals . . . . There the special people in your life that hard to replace.

Hi Kathy,
The older we get, the more we understand the definition of real friends.

Good friends are worth their weight in gold.  I've had several times in life when tested, that allowed me to identify who my true friends were.
