A true friend hides no sin or sorrow, bares his soul and shares the load. True love has no fear, is full of mercy, grace and forgiveness. There is freedom when honesty and acceptance are a given. Obedience is its own reward. Trust is earned when integrity and candor are consistent. Pain imprisons a heart full of secrets and deceit. Honor is given, rarely earned and necessary for respect to grow. Regrets are few when good choices are the norm. No one succeeds alone nor truly prospers without caring for others . Life is short but way to long if not shared with friends, we must be one to have many.
