Hints for a Happy Friendship

I told you before I love lists and we’ve talked about relationships-my kids have always said Momma you have many good friends. I love verses about friendship-and I have always studied books about friendship-The Friendships of Women by Dee Brestin for one.

Today I really want to share some hints on friendship I found in the book-Life’s Little Handbook of Wisdom. They are true and helpful.

1. Make friends even if you don’t think you need them.

2. Seek out quiet people. They have a lot to say, if you say something first.

3. Don’t establish a friendship on mutual dislikes.

4. Call if you are running late.

5. Look people in the eye when you talk to them.

6. Be one who says positive things about others.

7. Learn to tell a good story.

8. Ask other people about themselves.

9. Be happy for others in their good fortune.

10. Make sure your caring includes doing.

11. Know when to say good-bye.

I try to remember these hints and use them in relating with my friends. When I have done or said something that does not promote good friendship, I am thankful God stirs my conscience to work and make it right.

Happy friendships and be blessed!untitled
