Friendship is a Verb

A friend of mine and I were talking about friendships today and how the long lasting ones don't just happen! It takes little tiny actions of both parties over a period of time to build a quality relationship. The cool thing is that you don't know what the actions required are going to be until the moment arises. There's a saying about...doing the next right thing. I believe nurturing a friendship is similar. Be honest, pay attention to the other and see what needs to happen in any given moment. So I put together a little acrostic together to represent a few actions that help build a lasting friendship.
R-really listen
I-ignore brief moments of weakness
N-notice kindnesses, efforts
D-dance with each others' spirit
S-share ideas, thoughts, feelings
H-hold no grudges
I-impact by example
P-prove your trustworthiness
