Friendship Is A Blessing

"Friendship is a blessing, and a friend is the channel through whom great emotional, spiritual, and sometimes even physical blessings flow. Friends can cheer us when we’re sorrowful or depressed. Friends can challenge us when we allow ourselves to get beyond our reasonable boundaries. Friends can motivate us when we’re ready to give in, and they can provide for us when life falls apart. They are there when all is well, and we want someone with whom to share life’s pleasant and memorable moments. We often just want them around to have a good time, to laugh, to act silly, to enjoy some mutually liked activity. In how many ways have friends enriched our lives and made us feel loved, accepted, respected and cared for? Probably, too many to list, and the list grows daily."

Today I had an opportunity to get together with an "old" friend of mine. We laughed together, discussed serious things, and dreamed about the future together (looking at model homes). So often we find ourselves losing track of friends because we don't have the time to spend together. We say things like, "We'll call them next week." or "We'll get together soon." The bottom line is if we don’t make the time to celebrate our friends we won’t have the time ever. It is all about committing to connect and creating opportunities to make that happen.

Some friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on for dear life. Thank you for a great day, Patricia. I love you bunches, and I'm holding on for dear life!!
