This is a question I have been asking myself for several weeks.
I mean if you could put a dollar amount on it?

I have had this issue facing me for the last few weeks.

I have a dear friend that owes me a substantial amount of money for work I have done for him and thru no fault of his own things have turned south for him in several random acts that I know was beyond his control. Now I love this guy dearly and we have been friends for almost 20 years. One of my best friends.

Tonight I had a conversation with him and wiped the slate clean.
I feel a ton better and I hope he does as well.

So I ask what is friendship worth?

Money is such a materialistic item. I mean yeah I would love to have a bunch of it and especially right now considering I was down to little the last few days!! lol

To put some perspective on it. The actual amount I wrote off today to help my friend was

$20,000

Yes i said twenty thousand dollars.

Yes he is still one of my best friend and I think if it had been 100k. I would have felt the same.

I hope it never comes up again and I pray it gives us both restful peace in our relationship.

Just thought I would share.

You are one heck of a Man Big J. I want to type many things to say you are and I just can't put it all down. While I don't think I could do what you did...I do think it would give me great peace and tranquility. Awesome!

IF it pleases Jesus and warms and soothes YOUR heart......it is ALWAYS right.

I couldn't put a price on a true friendship, and he is one lucky guy to have you for a friend. A true friend is willing to help someone without expecting something in return. But, if I were that friend, I would find some way to repay your kindness when I got back on my feet.
