Thank you for being a friend.

July 31st - you re loved and appreciated!

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.

Henry Ford

Friendships are one of the most important things in life.  Jobs,cities, and circumstances change, but best friends remain constant.  It can be easy to take them for granted,, that’s why it so important to take the time to tell they how much you care for and appreciate them.

Friendships can enrich our lives in many ways.  Good friends teach you about yourself and challenge you to be better.  They encourage us to keep going when times get tough and celebrate your successes with  you. They do a lot more than give you a shoulder to cry one, they also have a positive impact on our health.  Research says friendships are just as important to your well being as eating right and exercising.

Social isolation and loneliness are linked to a variety of health problems such as high blood pressure, substance abuse, heart disease and even cancer. If you find yourself going through a tough time, having a friend to help you through can make the transition easier. Having a friend to support you plays a big role in building your self esteem ore how you appreciate and love yourself. They offer reassurance when your’re feeling unsure.  

Spending time with friends help reduce stress ;They can help you cope.  We all need somebody to lean on. They see you and love you for who you truly are.  

Anything is possible when you have the right people there to you support you

Yes! I'm not sure I ever experienced what Real Friendship meant until I began blogging. Just because someone's not nearby physically doesn't mean they're not in your heart.

Love that Andrew Gold song ... in fact, it's my cellular's ring tone for a couple of my friends.
