A friend is one will listen to your boring stories and you will listen to theirs too. A friend is one who you can call to your any need. A friend will come on your road trip with you just to make sure you are safe and can find your way.
And these things can only happen if your friendship is grounded on mutual trust, honesty, and selfless sacrifice. We are truly #grateful for our friends!
