Friends.....have you ever thought about what a gift you have in the friends that are in your life?  If not, sit back, make a list of those dear friends, and thank our Creator for that wonderful relationship in your life!  Perhaps, even write them a note of gratitude or call them today and let them know how special they are to you!

Friends are trusted companions along the this journey we call life!  We know them, we trust them, and we share our lives with them.  They are our pals, chums, buddies, comrades, schoolmates, colleagues and confidants.  Treasure them.........enjoy their company and advice!  Allow their gifts to enhance your life and then offer your friendship in return!  We all need people to help us through difficult, tumultuous times in our lives, but what about just sharing the joy we feel because they are in our life as well???

Invite a friend to have coffee, lunch or brunch together!  Form a book club and get together once a month!  Take them a basket of homemade goodies (or store bought, if you don't bake!)  Set a time to take a walk together, go to a movie or watch home at home together!  Have a giggle fest!  Tell them silly riddles or jokes that you told your kids (or you) were little!  Sit down, relax and just enjoy their company!!!

We have so many gifts in the friends around us and many times, we take them for granted or worry that we are all too busy to get together.......maybe your friend needs a little cheering up and hasn't reached out to you in a while - break the pattern and get together!

F = Fun
R = Relax
I = Imagine laughing and giggling together....
E = Embrace - give them a HUG!
N = Nostalgia
S = Serendipity

Most of all ENJOY this wonderful thing called friendship!!!
