"A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails"
Pioneer Girls Leaders' Handbook
Perhaps our most cherished possession is our friends. in "It's a Wonderful Life", Clarence autographs the book he leaves George Bailey "No man is a failure if he has friends".
Most people make the mistake of failing to utilize their friends. Notice I said "utilize" and not "use". Friends will help you over the rough spots and enjoy the high points along with you. Alcoholics Anonymous works on a system where each member has a sponser and when they encounter a rough place in the road, they call their sponser who comes over and helps them weather the storm. You friends will be willing to do this for you, if only you ask!
Someone said, "To have a friend, be a friend". When a friend asks you for help over a rough spot, gladly give that help and then when you need assistence, look to this friend for companionship through the storm.
