Hello Friends,

My two cents...

I hope you are staying warm. Wow, It is hard to believe that it is already February! It seems that just yesterday I was heading to Indiana for Thanksgiving and then planning to return for family celebrations. Now here we are -- the holidays behind us, we have had our January Luncheon and are looking forward to Spring and the Fashion Show. All of our interest groups have resumed after the holidays and even had a Crafts & Creations session. I would love to see more of those. We have so many interesting and creative ladies in our club that I look forward to each new interest group activity. I appreciate the faithfulness of our members; they support our club in so many different ways.

One of the most valuable qualities of friendship, to me, is loyalty. According to Cicero, "Loyalty is what we seek in friendship." Loyalty means having or showing complete and constant support for someone or something. It means honoring your friend - whether with them or not, never divulging secrets, and supporting them unwaveringly. Being loyal to those not present will build trust with those present.

A loyal friend is honest and impartial. She may not always agree with you or your opinion but offers a sounding board. She offers friendship unconditionally. A conditional friendship is not truly a friendship -- it is more of a business relationship. A loyal friend is impartial, they are accepting and non-discriminatory. They are able to view others objectively, taking into account the others' life and history. They understand and accept basic differences.

Loyalty, to me, is believing the best and encouraging good. It is supporting a friend when they are right, gently and privately helping when they are wrong. True loyalty is a rare and precious gift. Some people have even said, "Finding a loyal friend is like finding a teardrop in an ocean! If you find them, cherish them." Everyone can decide to become a loyal friend as it is a virtue that can be improved with daily practice. I hope to be able to give and be worthy of accepting the gift of loyal friendship.

In friendship,

Crystal

p.s. One last thought, Euripides said, "One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives."
