I have been so blessed with friends. Not only do I have a wonderful family, but also friends that I know would do whatever they could to help me. It just does not get any better than that. I hope my girls also will be blessed with a wealth of friendships. I know school can be hard for them, and it is tough figuring our friends, but I always try to remember what mom always said to me when I was in school - be nice to them and they will be nice to you. How simple is that? Not always that simple, but it does usually work. I just need to remember, and do that even to strangers or people that I come across daily. A smile, a compliment, or just listening can truly make someone's day.
Feel free to tell a friend that they are wonderful - many times.
Remember that your friends are the family that you pick.
Invite a new friend to church, coffee, or something - it may be hard for them to meet people.
Enjoy the time you have with friends, because time is precious.
Never put off helping a friend - you may need it too one day.
Don't let friends drink and drive.
Share your blessings with your friends, and they will share too.
