Wonderful Friends I Am Thankful For

Relationships - Friendships

Introduction:In the past 8 months I have had 2 friends die. I wanted to mention my inner most friends so I can concentrate on the good relationships I am thankful for in my life. Seniors often think of the last rungs on the ladder more often than the vast amount of time still available to build and appreciate friendships. I want to highlight my friends I am glad and grateful for a very few specific reasons. If I were to mention all their qualities, I'd have an unending list filled here.

  • 01

    Lisa

    To just say her name brings a smile to my face. She is witty, humorous, worldly, insightful, thoughtful and I am so thankful to call her a friend. We ran into each other in a church we were attending and really did not take too many opportunities to nourish our friendship much. After we evaluated some of our friends that we shared time with, we became closer friends to each other. I have known Lisa for 7 years. When She needs a stable person she relies on me. Partly because I am available and partly because she knows I am dependable for what she needs me for at that time. She is not always looking to take since she gives so much to our friendship. I hope to keep Lisa as a friend for life.

    Diane

    Diane and I met when I introduced her to myself in a community pool. We did and still do water exercises as we share our concerns and private dealings of life. We are new friends of only six months since we first met in April 2015. Diane is one of kind person that I instantly felt a companionship toward. I have felt that with few people in my life, but I knew instantly I liked her without knowing anything about her. As the months unfolded, I feel a sisterhood with Diane believing I could trust her with anything. That is a monumental statement for me to say about such a new person in my friendship circle.

    Betsy

    Betsy and I have a special bond. We like to talk about church, God, our lives and each other. No part of any of daily events is off limits. Betsy and I talk about politics, animals, nature and our past. We lovingly admire the good qualities of each other and compliment each other without thinking we will be able to say those things another time. We both know how important today is and we don't let a day slip by unnoticed. Betsy are five years difference in age between us. I am the older of the two, but healthier than my friend, Betsy. Betsy is a caring, sweet person whom I am so thankful to call my friend.

    Joycelyn

    Joycelyn and I have known each other for 10 years. We met at a political meeting and since we both like talking about politics, our friendship grew with that as a common and strong interest. Joycelyn is 10 years my senior but that has not hindered, but only enriched our friendship over the years. Joycelyn has so much knowledge it is interesting to listen to any topic she talks about. Our favorite topics are how we want to keep ourselves healthy, politics, nature, animals and food. Joycelyn is considerate enough to invite me to her home to watch TV when some great program is airing. She knows I do not have a TV and she likes my company and has said that many times. I am very thankful for a wonderful friend like Joycelyn.

    Carol

    Carol and I have been friends for 59 years. We lived around the corner from each other while we attended 7th through 12th grade. Since we became friends, we have seen each other though a lot of good and sad situations. We have supported each other without agendas. Very few friends I have ever known love each other unconditionally. Carol and I do. We have never talked behind the other's back. Anything I have said about Carol could be said if she was standing next to me hearing those statements. Our friendship has enriched our lives to an extent neither of us ever thought it would. I love Carol like a sister and I receive that kind of love from Carol too. We think more about each other than we do about ourselves.
