R is for reliable – a friend says they will do something or meet me at a certain time, I know I can rely on that (God willing)

I is for inspirational – a friend will inspire me to be the best I can be by being the best they can be

E is for easy to be with – I can be myself, say what I think, even make mistakes and be forgiven

N is for natural –  a friend can be themselves with me – what you see is what you get

D is for discernment – a friend  will know what is the right thing to do or say at the right time

S is for silliness –  they are willing to play and enjoy and have a good laugh – see the funny side of life

H is for hope – a friend will always see hope for tomorrow no matter how grey it is today

I is for ideas – a friend will share their ideas and dreams with me

P is for patient – a friend will understand when I find it hard to make a decision or keep changing my mind

FRIENDSHIP is precious!

  1. Hi Lorraine thank you for the Pingback, and your thoughts, there is much Truth in what you shared,

    Friendship is very precious to me and my friends, some I have had for over 30 years, they are very faithful and have inspired me to create many Power points and e-mails but being a Christian my Best friend is Jesus Christ and He has never let me down and wonderfully He is always there for me 24 x7 and He inspires me never to give up and strengthens me so I don’t …. How good is that!

    Christian Love Anne

  2. Hi Lorraine! Great words for friendship…I especially like ‘S’ for silliness. Life gets better with laughter and lightness!
    Thanks for the pingback and have a great day! 🙂

  3. Well done! I have been really struggling with some friendships right now. I need to evaluate these particular friendships for the traits you write about here and see where we stand.

  4. Hi Lorraine,
    This is a lovely post and I just want to say that since you have been blogging, I’ve supported you. I might have 5000+ emails but I try my best to support my fellow bloggers even if way after the post is mailed… For me, friendship is also about reciprocity… No one likes to feel like they are having a one sided conversation or that they are the 3rd banana on a wheel. Without loyalty, reciprocity, communication, a friendship would be nothing but a farce. Thanks for connecting!
    Have a lovely weekend! 🙂
