I am a friend to a few others.

Have you ever noticed that friends are hard to come by?  Being one is even harder.  A friend sticks closer than a brother…and that takes work, time, and being seriously inconvenienced.  I usually settle for acquaintances – friends without any of the inconveniences.  But every now and then life brings along the real deal, even if just for a season…two or three men willing to be inconvenienced by, and be an inconvenience to, each other.  I’m in.
