His eye lines told of laughter, of warm scintillating smiles and affection. His face was wrinkled like an old leather jacket, he’d definitely been one of those old people you could say aged gracefully and surprisingly agile for his age. When he spoke, experience danced on his lips like a curious child. Compassionate, affectionate are some of the words to describe him, yes, the man is my grandfather. He passed on when I was 7 years, young or old enough to have a blurred memory of him. Nevertheless warm memories he has left behind we are told. His caring words and kind acts is what we came to know of him. Our heart came to be filled with his precious, joyous remembrances we have been told.
I came to ask myself what a friend is. Scrolling through my contacts, not to mention those on social media, I had plenty of them. What then is a friend? What is meant by friendship? Friendship goes beyond just sharing time or hang out together, it is long lasting. Friendship means lending your shoulder to someone to cry on whenever in need. Friendship means being comfortable around each even in silence. To be honest with each other no matter what the cost.
Friendship is a feeling of mutual trust, support, affection and understand. I have come to realize that people have different ideas on how friendship works. People who are genuinely your friend put your relationship above being right or trying to feel superior. If someone constantly puts you down, he or she is not a real friend. It goes without saying that real friends make you feel good, as opposed to bring you down.
To live life without the experience of friendship , is life without living.
Hence Friendship is undoubtedly a heavenly thing. Life is colourless and very slow when without a friend. Hence, friendships is essential to the successful well being of anyone. A friendship turns stronger with care and maintenance. In the same way disrespect towards it fade and destroy it away.

Decide on what you want n what you want will manifest. Faith gives you every reason to affirm something is yours before you see it with your necked eyes.”
