How many "friends" do we really have? You only need to look at Facebook to see that everyone else has far more than we do....

Or do they? How many of these Facebook friends are there for us through thick and thin? With how many of these friends can we take up where we left off, even years later?

The world is full of the Facebook Friend but the true friend is a rarer breed altogether. True friendships need working at to flourish. We can't afford to take them for granted. If we do, it is our loss because a true friend enriches our life more than wealth or good fortune ever can.

Why the philosophical note?

Because I've a very special friend who is not in the best place at the moment and that thought focuses the mind somewhat.
Come on Chris; fight on!!

If you've taught me one thing, it's to value true friendship and to give it the attention it deserves.

So for all those who are thinking "it's time I got in touch with so and so....." Stop thinking and ACT today!

You're right, real friendship has nothing whatsoever to do with facebook.
I hope your friend has better times ahead for her.

I agree. True friends are precious, but they are also prepared to understand and forgive our failings, even when we cannot.

I hope Chris "fights on".
