The dear friends that grace my life……past, present and future, are among my sweetest joys.  To be a friend and to have a friend is a trusted responsibility to be handled with great care and love.  There are many quotations and poems that poignantly depict the meaning of friendship, but none so true as what our friends mean personally, to each one of us.  In my own life, these special people have made my life richer for knowing them, and have placed an indelible imprint on my heart.  Sometime today, or this week, let your friends know what they mean to you.  To receive such a gift……..priceless.
