The ABC's Of FRIENDSHIP

Always be honest, would you want THEM to lie to you?

Be there when they need you, or you may wind up alone.

Cheer them on; we all need encouragement now and then.

Don't look for their faults, even if you have none.

Encourage their dreams; what would we be without them?

Forgive them; you just MAY do something wrong sometime.

Get together often;misery loves company, so does glee.

Have faith in them; the human animal is remarkable.

Include them; you may need to be included sometime.

Just be there when they need you.

Know when they need a hug..... and couldn't you use one?

Love them unconditionally; that is the ONLY condition.

Make them feel special, because aren't we ALL special?

Never forget them; who wants to feel forgotten?

Offer to help, and know when "No thanks" is just politeness.

Praise them honestly and openly.

Quietly disagree; noisy NO's make enemies.

Really listen; a friendly ear is a soothing balm.

Say you're sorry; don't let them assume it.

Talk frequently; communication is important.

Use good judgment.

Verbalize your feelings!

Wish them luck, hopefully good!

Xamine your motives before you "help" out.

Your words count; use them wisely.

Zip your lips (or hands) when told a secret.

By following these ABC's as often as you are able,
you should live a long and friend-filled life.
