The dictionary defines a friend as: A person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of romantic or family relations.
I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on FaceBook. It started as a marketing idea for my writing. But it’s turned into so much more.
I’ve meet some fantastic people, writers and non-writers alike. And, over this past weekend, I connected with some long lost high school friends. It’s been a blast from the past to be quite honest with you.
Ever have that?
Immediately I was whisked back to the big feathered hair, rolled up jeans, and Forenza clothes. I’ll have to remember that for my “Then and Now Thursday” post, huh?
Oh, I digress…
I didn’t have the most spectacular high school experience. No need for details other than the fact that I was a lost and angry teenager. Pretty hard to tolerate. I ran from high school to college, met my future husband then started my life leaving everything and most everyone behind.
But then, the power of FaceBook flexed its muscles and brought me in contact with many friends and not just from high school. It got me thinking about friends in general and Ecclesiates 4:10 sums it up nicely in my mind: “If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”
How do you define friend?
