So this morning I was thinking... How do you discern who your friends are?  Then it came to me that the more important question is Am I a friend? Am I being a good friend? I hope so.

Just some ponderings for the day...

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.

Henri Nouwen
