Friends... and love...

Friend: One attached to another by affection or esteem; Acquaintance; one that is not hostile; a favored companion.

From what I have seen lately, some people do not comprehend the meaning of the word friend, so there you have it, in black and white.

They also do not know, or fathom the meaning of love, so here:

Love: Strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties; Attraction based upon sexual desire; affection and tenderness felt by lovers; affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests; an assurance of love; warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion; the object of attachment, enthusiasm, or desire; a beloved person; darling; inspired by affection; to hold dear; to cherish; to feel a lover's passion, devotion, or tenderness; caress; to fondle amorously; to copulate with; to like or desire actively; to take pleasure in; to thrive in; to feel affection or experience desire.

What do these two words have in common? Both, if true, grow in spite of trials and turmoil, hard times makes them flourish and grow to new depths and heights, it does not kill them, but causes them to thrive, if first we love or befriend, in honesty.

Love does not whither, nor die, not true love which only comes from the heart and soul and can only be given completely, wholeheartedly.

Do you love someone truly? Have you ever? I have, still do, even though they have changed drastically. Will I take him back? No, for I know not the man he has become, nor do I wish to.

I think there is also a tendency for the words love and friendship to be used to often and too loosely. They are sacred words that have to be cherished. I prefer to keep them only for the people who are close in my life, who deserve them.

Good post!!!

Bye everyone, it was a blast

Thanks Tracy, and I agree with you about who we share them with. It seems I have been far too liberal in sharing mine lately. I have learned a valuable lesson or two along the way though. I finally see the light, and it is breath taking.

Have a good day my friend, it is always good to see you, even if only in blog land!
