My definition of a good friend…
I wrote a bestselling book about friendship called “Friends Forever Whenever Wherever”! Inside I share what makes for a good friend.
I believe a good friend is someone who doubles the good times, and halves the bad times. Plus a true friend is someone who is there for you – when you need someone to talk. Or when you say you don’t need to talk – but really kinda do.
“Friends Forever Whenever Wherever” shares both wise and humorous insights about friendship. Plus, this beautifully illustrated gift book will help to inspire your friends with words of encouragement – while making them laugh so hard they snort their Caramel Macchiato out their nose.
