F is for friendship, that special connection, that intimate bonding. The giggles and rants, the shoulder to cry on. The island in a storm. The comfort of knowing that there is someone who understands you with all your quirks and faults.

A friend says sorry when things have been messed up. Friendship is based on mutual trust and admiration. Time spent with a friend is a gift, the hours float by, the world becomes a better place.
