The Value of a True Friend

It’s been a busy few weeks and I’ve had the luxury of being at some incredible events recently which you may have seen documented across my channels. Whilst normally I would have put these into a blog post for today I decided I wanted to talk about something a little bit closer to heart.

I’m fortunate enough to have some true friends that I can rely on and over the years I’ve found that some friends fleet in and out of your life but the true friends are truly there. This doesn’t mean they are around all the time but they are there when you need them.

And, in typical me-fashion, I’ve found a quote/story that perfectly sums up a true friend (in my eyes) something that I think we can all agree is difficult at times to really understand and define.

“This guy’s walking down the street when he falls into a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts “Hey you! Can you help me out?” The doctor writes a prescription, throws it in the hole and moves on.

…Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up “Hey Father! Can you help me out?” The priest writes a prayer, throws it in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by and the guy shouts up “Hey Joe! Can you help me out?” The friend jumps in the hole and the guy says “Are you stupid? Now we’re both down here” The friend says “Yeah but I’ve been down here before and I know the way out”

So the Monday thought I wanted to leave with you was maybe take a bit of time today or this week to acknowledge your true friends.
