What about Friendship?

A lot has been written about love and family relationships but very little about friendship. Why is this? Do friends play a less vital role in our lives?

Rules of Friendship

* Respect the person not the position, title, or assets.

* Always do what you say you will do.

* Keep their secrets a secret. No exceptions!

* Always be an optimist, never a naysayer.
