A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words. ~ Unknown

I woke up this morning thinking about friendship and how it has gotten me through - the best and worst of times. My friends have been my family my whole life - providing me support when I needed it and laughs to keep me going.

Friendship is an amazing thing. I spoke with my oldest and dearest friend the other day - we were literally born in the same hospital and have been friends ever since. I hadn't spoken with her in over a year and I realized that it really didn't matter how long it had been. The reality was that I could have not spoken to her in over 10 years and nothing really would have changed - she was still my sweet friend and sister.

I realized that friendship is a source of magic that keeps our lives going. It adds joy to the day, sweetness in our steps and laughter along the way. What a gift it is to have friends!

What are the friendships like in your life? Do you value them, acknowledge them or remind them how special they are? Do you remind yourself of how special and lucky you are to have such amazing friends? And do you find time to appreciate your friendships, let them know how grateful you are and celebrate your time together? Do that today, call a friend and thank them for being there for you in your life. Also, see what new friends you make and be grateful for the old and new!
