'International Day Of Friendship' 30th July




Our 'CST Friendship Group' this week has a theme of 'Friendship', as it is UN 'International Friendship Day' on 30th July. 




INTRODUCTIONS


We asked members to come to the group with stories about their best friend or soul mate. How they met? How much of a part they play in their life? What they enjoy so much about their company? What they most admire about them? Some members brought a photograph to the group with them.




IDIOMS


Next we completed these thirty 'Idioms About Friendship' together and discussed their meanings.

friends in high places - one who has friends who have important or influential positions


keep your friends close but your enemies closer - if you keep your enemies close to you, by acting friendly with them, you are able to watch them


familiarity breeds contempt - when you know too much about someone you can lose respect for them


absence makes the heart grow fonder - when those you love are physically far away from you, you miss them and think more positively about them


a friend in need is a friend indeed - a person who helps when we are not doing well or have problems is a true friend


strangers are just friends waiting to happen - everyone you meet in your life has the potential to become your friend


a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out - when the going gets tough, the ones that step in and help you are your real friends




We then moved on to our picture and music quiz, which started with a song about best friends.
