There are some basic necessities in life needed in a (wo)man’s life for survival. There is water, food, air, love; and there is friendship too. The joy that emanates from pure friendship is just refreshing! Eventually, some friends do become family.

Friendship is a gift, an experience and an adventure. Over the years, there are some key characteristics I’ve identified in real friends.

They pray with you, and for you.
