I spent a wonderful weekend with some of my favorite people in the whole world. My mom, both of my sisters and my two best friends and their mom and sisters. We spent a short weekend at the lake. Julie gave each of us a book, "Hugs for Friends", and this inspirational message is taken from that book.
The wonderful, miraculous thing about friendship is, anyone can participate. Each of us has the power to partner with another and, in so doing, change the world one heart at a time. You, as a friend, have that power. Your companionship can bring peace and joy to another.
Companionship does require an investment. It takes time to build. You'll have to share your pain and loss, even reveal your weaknesses. but the rewards are worth it, because companionship means not only bearing one another's burdens but also sharing in victories, in healing, in joy. And in a world fueled by greed, selfishness, and hatred, friendship-companionship-may be the only way to make a difference.

Thank you dear friends for taking the time to make a difference. I love each and everyone of you.
