A friend is one who stands by you in your hour of need but also shares many memorable occasions. A friend is one who asks for nothing and expects nothing in return other than friendship. A friend will acceptwhatever you have to give when in need and in return will give to you when you are in need. A friend is one who does not count the cost and does not expect you to count the cost be it a monetary gift or the gift of time which is one of the most precious things that can be given.
A purse is usually small and made of leather. A woman keeps it in her handbag. It contains valuables such as coins, credit cards, a driving licence, paper money and postage stamps.
We noticed a woman looking at a lovely leather purse in the War on Want charity shop in Ballynahinch, Co. Down the other day. She took it to the counter, took her purse from her handbag, took out some money and handed it to the assistant. The voluntary assistant said "Thank You", put the purse into a plastic bag and handed it to the woman.
A Summer Festival is held annually in our town. There is always a tug-of-war. We love this event, two teams of big brawny men pulling against each other. It is good fun and we get carried away shouting the word pull at the top of our voices.
