The Importance of Friendship

In today's society independence is highly valued. So much so that needing or wanting someone to walk alongside you can be seen as a negative thing. I disagree with this mindset. We were never made to walk through life alone. (I Cor. 12).  It's critical we have friends in our lives.
A friend is a person who will always care
A friend is a person with whom you can share
True friends can be honest about how they feel.
True friends can be open with each other, Real.

A friend always listens to what's going on
A friend will encourage when the road looks long.
Sometimes through a hug, sometimes just a smile,
Friends will help you out when you face life's trials. 

Friends share a lot of things, both good and bad
The joys and the sorrows, the happy and sad
Life's sometimes joyful, sometimes full of pain.
But friends stick together, despite any strain.

The thing about friends is that they always try
To see the other side and understand why.
That's why the bond between friends is so strong;
They love each other; the friendship goes on.
