You've Got a Friend in Me

I have been blessed in life with a swarm of friends !  Since I have a small family my friends have become an extension of my bigger circle.  They mean the world to me and I think it is very important to tend to them properly.  So today I thought why not mix it up a bit and jot down a few tips on what I think is an outline for being a good friend.  With the help of “How To Live Like a Lady” by Sarah Tomczak I have created a list:  ( because being ultra-anal I like lists)

Tips on Being a Good Friend
  • Phone when you say you will
  • Always remember their birthday
  • Don’t tell their secrets
  • Don’t be judgmental
  • Always be a shoulder to cry on or a place of celebration
  • Return what you borrow, cleaned and in good condition
  • Don’t gossip about a friend behind their back
  • Let them sleep on your sofa if they miss their flight, the train, has a fight with their spouse or too tipsy to drive home
  • Don’t comment on their weight unless of course they ask you
  • Don’t copy a girlfriends style – create your own
  • Help with job applications, moving to a new home and planning their kids birthdays

What are your tips to being a good friend?  Lets share them!!

My friends are a blessing in my life~ not sure what I’d do without them !
