Friends are a Treasure

The last two weeks have taught me valuable lessons on friendship that I feel i must share with you in hope that you will treasure your friends. I have a gift of making friends easily and a weakness of letting them go. I really get attached to my friend. That is the reason why i still maintain my kindergarten, primary, high school and college friends, not to mention those that i have worked with for the last 30 years.
Having a reasonable number of friends comes with a cost. I have to attend many of their ceremonies as well as invite the for my functions and event. sometimes it can get stressful. However, every other day, I keep on adding to the list of my friends.

The saddest part of it is that I have lost quite a number of my friends through along the With quite a number of friends I have quite a number of friends. Two weeks ago I lost a friend of twenty years through sudden illness. As went to console the family and attend the burial, I met many more of our mutual friends, all very sad. The comment on each person's mouth was, " We have lost a genuine friend." It got me thinking.Am a genuine friend? Friendship can be costly but it is worth the cost.
