Take care of you friends.

The other day on the Today Show they posted a study about the kind of friends we need to have to have a healthy and happy life.

1-Childhood Friends. They know the essence of you. They have been there through all the growing pains each and all of us go through. If truth be told, they also are the people who have enough information on to black mail you with most likely. I know mine do.

2-A new friend. New friends bring new experiences and along with those experiences they help us learn and grow, which makes life more interesting.

3-A spiritual friend. When times are tough and things go a ry. It's nice to have someone who believes the same things you do. I find that marrying someone with my same faith has made my marriage stable and has given it a firm foundation on which to raise our children on.

4-A workout friend. I don't have one of these. I have at least twenty in the classes that I teach, but I know for many people they can't do it alone. And let's face it. It’s always funnier to have a buddy to talk to and share with while you sweat.

5-A younger friend. I truly believe in this one. Having a younger friend keeps you younger. They also look at things differently and show you new ways to see life. I think this is very important.

6-Make your partners best friend yours. This is hard for some. I've heard plenty of women complain about their husbands friends. I can't relate. My husband’s friends have always been my friends. In fact I share with them as much as I do my own girlfriends.

So I asked myself do I have the kind of friends I need and want. And now I’m asking you. Do you have the kinds of friends who enrich your life, make it easier, not harder, are they there when you need them and do they make you feel valuable? I truly hope so. I have some of the best friends on the planet. There has not been a time in my life when they would not have willingly been there for me and helped me in any way they could. Friends make life easier.


  1. Friends are very important indeed. I have always been blessed with a few wonderful friends! The stay true forever kind, that even when you do something dumb, just laugh and then admit that they've done something even dumber. ha ha. =)

  2. I'm glad I have you as my friend :) Thank you for all you do for me.

  3. Lisa your so kind. I don't do that much for you, but what I do do is my pleasure. You are a wonderful person and I'm glad to call you my friend.
