    @gayuraam thankyou for giving a like to my post in One best thing about your friend started by @chillbreeze in August 2015 because of which made me write this snippet

    Best philosophy in life is to keep the mind happy. We don’t know whether success gives happiness or not but a happy mind can lead to success..It is not important to have long friend list on facebook and whatsapp .
    But it is important to have at least one friend who can read your face as a book and ask “What’s up”

    I have a friend who can read my face and ask whats wrong and tries to help me out. Our friendship started when we were in school in the year 1957and till today we are in touch. Earlier we used to keep in touch through phone but now through Whatsup through which we can chat anytimewhenwe are on line.

    What I like about her is she is a rich person but became friend with me. We used to study together from 7th Std to X Std. in her house , one hour play and one hour study . Though rich she is down to earth and always ready to help. At that time we were not in a good financial condition she used to help in so many things, give her dresses to wear, take me by car to school everyday. She had a separate room and those 4 years we spent everyday two hours in that room. Her whole family treated me like a family member. After schooling she paid fees for typing class and because of that only I got ajob as a Typist and then through promotion I became Steno and then Senior Assistant.

    Every garden must have a rose ,every face must have a smile, every grass must have some dew , and every person must have a friend like her.
    Don’t expect your friend to be a perfect person but , help your friend to become a perfect person that’s true friendship .Mother Teresa.

    Viji maa,
    I had read about your true friend some of your other threads too. Nice to know that you have that good friend but I am curious to know has you been keeping in touch with her?
    I have such kind of 3 true friends in my life too. I don't remember that I helped them but they supported me emotionally a lot .

    Glad toget your first fb. Ya through whatsapp we keep in touch. Gladto know you also have 3 true friends in your life and to know that they supported you emotionally. I have also other friends , my office friends, IL friends, facebook friends etc but this friend is the best who is my school friend. She is special because though she is rich , she is down to earth person and never shows that she is rich , her whole family treat me like their family member.

    Very nice, Vijima.

    I like the Sanskrit quote," RuNanu bandhena pati patni sutalayaha." I have not been lucky; despite giving my best, my friends have failed me. Ditto relations. But I am an optimist: I keep making new friends and most often 'Give' than 'Receive'. Try, try, try again!

    Nice dp:)
