I’m sure you saw this coming as the second reason. Family and friends first, right? 😛
Let me just say that without my friends, I couldn’t live. They always know exactly what to say or do. Whenever I need to talk to someone, they’re always there, no matter how stupid the things I have to say may be.
So, at the risk of sounding really mushy-gushy and cheesy, I feel the need to say I have the best friends in the world.
I’m just thinking about how lonely it would be to have no one to talk to or hang out with… no one to comfort you when you’re feeling low… so just knowing that there are people to turn to makes me smile. I just feel so thankful.
I really think that friends are perhaps the greatest gift the world has to offer. True friends are hard to come by, so don’t take them for granted. Treat them with utmost respect. If you know someone who understands you, who thinks the same way you do, who sees things just like you… well then. You are a very lucky person. Don’t ever forget it.
One of my favorite friendship quotes: “Friends are the most important ingredient in this recipe of life.”
One more- I couldn’t resist: “A friend is like a rainbow. [(S)he] brightens your life when you’ve been through a storm.”
Both of these quotes are from The Friendship Page; check it out if you want to read more awesome quotes.
So, to end on a happy (and hopefully not to cheesy) note, I just want to say thank you to all my amazing friends out there- you know who you are. 🙂
And one more thing- don’t forget, National Friendship Day is the first Sunday in August- this year it’s August 7th!
