Friendship day is around the corner and therefore we wish you advanced happy friendship day 2016. Allow us to start this post with a wonderful story about friendship.
A Great Story about Friendship
A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.
The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand “Today my best friend slapped me in the face”.
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone “Today my best friend saved my life”.
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?” The other friend replied “When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
Moral: Do not value the things you have in your life. But value who you have in your life. A great friend will always back you in any situation.
Indeed a wonderful story about friendship taken from this awesome collection of friendship stories.

Happy Friendship Day Childhood Friends
They say “Friendship is not a big thing – it’s a million little things”. Friendship is the most open relationship in the world. We have many friends, some are from college, some from school, and few others from work place.
But there is something very different about childhood friends. They always remain social for us throughout our life, nobody can replace them. A study of researchers found that the friendship formed during post secondary education lasts longer than other friendships formed earlier.
Childhood friends are most often referred to our family member, they are the one with whom we would have done most crazy things in our life for the first time. Not only we have fun together but we learn alot from each other knowingly or unknowingly.
We learn to play with them; we learn to study, to compete, to help each other and many other lessons for life. In childhood we don’t care about making choices in doing friendship, we don’t know on whom we can trust or not, we don’t think about the benefits and losses of making someone our friend. We don’t care about the other hundreds of things in the world, we just make them our friends and love to be with them.
This is why childhood friendship is genuine. As the time passes we lose some of our friends, while others are still with us. Situations do change, but the thing didn’t change are the memories. And no matter what, we all miss our childhood friends. Let’s take some time to remember them.
