This week I celebrate friendship.
There are lots of different kinds of friends:
Those who are acquaintances, people you know but aren’t especially close to. The people you know for a time or season of life then they are gone. Some friends are those you work with and rarely see outside of work. There are the friends who call you when they need something and only you can help them. Some people just show up now and then and it’s great to see them.
There are also the best of friends who sometimes are really more family than friends and sometimes more family than your actual family. These are the ones you laugh with but you can also cry with them. These are the ones you can agree to disagree with and it doesn’t matter what the difference is you still love each other. These friends you can call anytime for any reason and they are there for you.
These are the friends who are priceless gifts from God.

Friends are one of the greatest blessings of all. I love your break down of the different types. It’s not only the ones we see more often which are important, but I definitely value those which withstand distance and time the most.
You are right, Tonja. I have a friend who lives in Africa and we only see each other every four years or so. But when we get together it is like we were never apart. It’s almost magical.
Patricia, friends are blessings. I agree. It is a special gift when they are like family. Hugs.
It is truly a blessing. My heart is full because of the gifts of friendships that became family.
Friends. What would we ever do without them? Wonderful post about friends. 🙂
Hopefully, doing without friends will not happen. 🙂
I can’t agree with you more – friendships are priceless. Reminds me of the saying you can’t pick your relatives, but you can choose your friends. Mine are awesome and have helped me so much over the years. I’d be nowhere without them. Have a lovely weekend!
Friends are many things for us and to be without them would be living in a lonely world.
Thanks for reminding me how rich I am!
You are welcome. Friends are treasures.
Your last paragraph… so true!
Where would we be without friends who are family? I hope to never know.
Those are the very best kind of friends, and I agree that they are truly family!
I have a couple in that category and they make life better than I could have ever imagined.
