BENON SEVAN ON FRIENDSHIP

15 April 2006

On Friendship Week this month, Benon Sevan emailed the following to his friends:

My Dear Friend:

I don't care how many times you receive this email- feel special every time you do because everyone that sends it to you thinks and know that you are special to them.

A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty,

He said...no.

She asked him if he would want to be with her forever...and he said, no.

She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a no.

She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down her face, the boy grabbed her arm and said...

You're not pretty you're beautiful.
I don't want to be with you forever, I NEED to be with you forever.
And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die...

SO NOW I WILL SAY:

I like you because of who you are to me...A true friend.
And if I did not get this back I'll take the hint.
Not really, if you were busy, forget it. Just say a short prayer...

Remember:

"A good friend will come bail you out of jail....
But a true friend will be sitting next to you saying ...
WE screwed up, but we had fun!

Proud to be your Friend! "

I've learned...that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
I've learned...that we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.
I've learned...that money doesn't buy class.
I've learned...that it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
I've learned...that under everyone's hard shell, there is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
I've learned...that the Lord didn't do it all in one day.

What makes me think I can?
I've learned...that to ignore the facts does not change the facts.
I've learned.
I've learned...that the less time I have to work, the more things I get done.

It's National Friendship Week.

Show your friends how much you care.

Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means sending it back to the person who sent it to you.
If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.

HAPPY FRIENDSHIP WEEK TO YOU!!!!!!

YOU ARE MY FRIEND AND I am honored.
