Friendship is a priceless gift that cannot be bought nor sold . . .
but its value is far greater, than a mountain made of gold.
For gold is cold and lifeless it can neither see nor hear.

And in the time of trouble, it is powerless to cheer.
It has no ears to listen, nor heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask God for a gift..
Be thankful if He sends not diamonds, pearls, or riches ...
But the love of real true friends.

One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.  The best and the most beautiful things in the world.
