Friend 3

The most beautiful discovery that true friends can make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. (Elizabeth Foley, Attorney)

Sometimes we find it difficult to move away from home, leaving friends behind. We feel as if we’re losing some important part of our life. When children make such a move, they may form new friendships easily, forgetting most of the former ones. But, as Foley suggests, if our friendship has been deep and meaningful, separation will not diminish the relationship.

A friend is always loyal. … The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense. … As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. (Proverbs 17:17; 27:9, 17)
