Happy Friendship Day!!

Lovely story of two friends showing us the importance of friends in our lives..

Two inseparable friends, Sam and Jason, met with an accident on their way to Boston City.

The following morning, Sam woke up blind and Jason was still unconscious. Dr. Berkeley was standing at his bedside looking at his health chart and medications with a thoughtful expression on his face. When he saw Sam awake, he beamed at him and asked.” How are you feeling today, Sam?” 

Sam tried to put up a brave face and smiled back saying, “Absolutely wonderful Doctor. I am very grateful for all that you have done for me.”

Dr Berkeley was moved at Sam’s deed. All that he could say was, “You are a very brave man Sam and God will make it up to you in one way or another”. While he was moving on to the next patient, Sam called back at him almost pleading, “promise me you won’t tell Jason anything”.

“You know I won’t do that. Trust me.” and walked away.

“Thank you ” whispered Sam. He smiled and looked up in prayer ” I hope I live up to your ideas… please give me the strength to be able to go through this.. Amen”

Months later when Jason had recuperated considerably, he stopped hanging around with Sam. He felt discouraged and embarrassed to spend time with a disabled person like Sam.

Sam was lonely and disheartened, since he didn’t have anybody else other than Jason to count on. Things went from bad to worse. And one day Sam died in despair. When Jason was called on his burial, he found a letter waiting for him. Dr Berkeley gave it to him with an expressionless face and said” This is for you Jason. Sam had asked me to give it to you when he was gone”. 

In the letter he had said: “Dear Jason, I have kept my promise in the end to lend you my eyes if anything had happened to them. Now there is nothing more that I can ask from God, than the fact that you will see the world through my eyes. You will always be my best friend……..Sam”.

When he had finished reading Dr. Berkeley said ” I had promised Sam to keep his sacrifice he made a secret from you. But now I wish I didn’t stick it because I don’t think it was worthy it”. 

All that was left for Jason while he stood there was tears of regret and memories of Sam for the rest of his life. (Source: http://www.best-friends-forever.com/two-incredable-friend.html)


A true friend drops their plans when you’re in trouble, shares joy in your accomplishments, feels sad when you’re in pain.

A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice–but when you don’t follow it, they still respect and love you.

Friendship is the gift that goes on giving.

Happy Friendship Day Friends. 🙂 🙂
