Friendship..........ahhh........what wonderful people I have in my life - how about YOU? There are old friends, new friends, long lost friends, close friends, antagonistic friends and dear, sweet friends! They come in all flavors, shapes and sizes!!!
Have you ever looked up the definition of friend? A person one knows, likes, trusts....a favored companion, comrade.....one who supports a group or cause........do you have a friend like that in your life? I hope so! If not, can YOU be one to another person this week???
Friends bring so much into our lives: Joy, laughter, fun, sharing, compassion, honesty, durability, companionship, warmth, comfort, and confidence. Don't you just feel better around some of your friends? Does your life light up when you have coffee with a friend or meet them for lunch for their birthday?
WOW - what joy transcends between friends who have known each other for a decade or two or perhaps four!!! Look back over your life - who has been there for you through thick and thin? Is there a friend you KNOW you can always count on? Someone who supports you, loves you despite any flaw or shortcoming you may have?
I have heard the saying many times: "You may only be one person in this world, but you may be the world to one person!" Think about that for a moment..........you may mean the world to someone that you don't even realize how much you mean to them.......stay alert for those messages from someone close to you!
Have you said thank you to that friend that drove you to your last doctor appointment or sat with you in the waiting room when you were concerned about your health? When was the last time you wrote a note to someone who made a difference in your life? Old or new, they need to know how much they mean to you!
Consider sending an real note to someone you haven't spoken to in a long, long time......tell them how much they mean to you! Or, try the eCards available online, too! There are so many resources to reach out to those we love and cherish.......NOW is the time! Don't delay..........you never know when you might not be able to tell them again how much they mean to you! And, besides, it is just plain fun to reconnect with someone whose company you enjoy!
Go ahead..........make the call.........send the note.........write that email!!! You will receive a gift as well.........the gift of their presence!!!
