This is another that hung on parchment on the wall of my childhood. It gave me not only an expectation of what a friend is, but what being a friend is.
“Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts or measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
~~ Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
Whose friend have you been today?
