True Friends, People Who Light Up Our Lives

"What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me.
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
And I'll try not to sing out of key.
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends..."

Today's post goes straight to the point. I guess that's because it touches on something that is only relevant when it emanates straight from the heart.

It is about true friendship.

Late in April this year, I took time to examine the kind of friends I have. Interestingly, there is no shortage of fair-weather friends - those who are invariably there when all is well. Genuine friends however, are few and far between.

A Brighter World
True friends brighten our lives. They add value. They inspire. They motivate. They are worth our while.
They may not seem to have much about and around them, but they also bring out the best in us.

And Kelis says it best in Lil Star,
If it seems like I'm shining brightly
It's probably a reflection of something you already are...
It's surprising how inspiring
It is to see you shining
Cause in the dark of the night you're all i can see
and you sure look like a star to me
This is definitely a most awesome song that you should listen to every now and then.

In view of the foregoing, are you a true friend?
