Howdy Wonder Friends! Given today's Wonder of the Day, we're particularly glad to call you all friends. If you come back to Wonderopolis every day, that would make you a really good friend! How many friends do you have? There's no need to coun t!
We can be great friends to each other, despite the distance, if we choose to make the effort. If we remember to make the time, we can have those types of meaningful, fulfilling conversations that make us feel seen, understood, appreciated, and supported.
22 reasons, why is it important to have a good friend
I compiled some of the ideas that resonated strongly with me some of them paraphrased or slightly altered for ease of reading. Be kind and listen. Be fun and light.
Be serious when needed, love extensively, and forgive always. Sandra Lumb. Eva Valencia. A true friend is someone who always listens and is genuinely interested in the good and bad, and someone who calls or writes just to say hello.
Kimberly McCarthy. Be loyal in confidence and characteralways open and inviting to share concerns, always honest even if you disagree.

Show up! You can pretend to care but you cannot pretend to show up. Sherri Levy. A true friend is someone you feel as comfortable with as you do when you are by yourself. No illusions, no holding back.
