what is a friend ~ ?

What is a friend?

A friend is like a comfy old home that welcomes you every time you see them

Someone to relax with and feel safe when you are around them ~

~ someone you can rely on ~

Someone who makes you smile when you are down ~

Someone you share everything with ~

and MOST of all someone you can trust ~

What is a friend to you?

Please share with me friends ;-)




  1. A friend to me means someone who has your best interests in mind, someone who truly cares about you, someone who tells you the truth, someone who is happy when you are happy and sad when you are sad. Thank you for sharing with us!

  2. These photos are absolutely beautiful! I smiled as I went through them. A friend, of course, is someone exactly like you! Someone who holds you up when you are down. Someone who tells you what you want to know, instead of hedging. Because you know your hearts are united.

  3. I think you have covered it quite nicely. My best friend and I talk about friendship frequently. I posted about our friendship sometime last year. We are completely polar opposites and yet I can't imagine not having her as my best friend. Hugs, Bonnie

  4. A friend is someone who makes time for you! Love your vintage love!

  5. all beautiful pictures !! and your ideas of what makes a good friend were "spot on".
    Since moving up here to Canada, I have reconnected with my high school and college BEst Friend. It was through her brother actually that I met my hubby.
    Now we are doing things as a couple.
    Don't know what I'd do without her.

  6. A friend is someone who loves you despite all of your faults. It's also someone who will be completely honest with you no matter what.

  7. Someone who takes you as you are and helps you become all that you are destined to be...

  8. I couldn't agree with you all more! Friendship is based in love - unconditional, selfless, without expectation or judgment - through think and thin.
    love ya' bunches, K

  9. Hi Marianne,
    Thank you for your sweet words you left last week! I love this post. A friend is someone that you can go months without speaking to and then call and pick up where you left off! And I just love this yellow chicks! Are they salt and pepper shakers?

  10. Yes, it's all of those things and more.
    A friend is someone who understands you and who is not waiting for the chance to criticize you. Someone who listens and never tells what they have heard. Someone who sincerely loves you.
    Hugs, Cindy

  11. A friend is all of those things you said. I think a true friend accepts you completely (the good with the bad) and a good friend knows what you need when you need it.


  12. Hello Friend
    I value the following in a Friend
    Being able to be myself around them
    Loves me good or bad
    Tells me if I am in the wrong knowing I value their opinion
    Knows when I need a Hug or a shoulder to lean on
    Thank you for the birthday wishes!
