Friendship Day ~ August 1, 2010

"Every friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
~Anais Nin

Happy Friendship Day, Scarlotlanders!!!

In 1935, the United States Congress proclaimed the first Sunday of August as National Friendship Day. I first heard about it when I was in high school. We were able to buy our friends carnations and they would be delivered to them throughout the school day. It always made me feel really good to be able to see the smile on my friends face when they got one from me.

For as long as I can remember, my friends hold a special place in my heart. My Father died when I was young..and my Mother favored my Brother, so I clung to my friends for comfort. My friends became my family. They accepted me for the good, and the bad. Believe me, I am not the perfect friend. At times, I can be clingy (only cuz my family isn't)..I can be distant also (not believing I deserve friends)...but I do know..I always have time and an ear for my friends.

If you need me..I would drop almost anything (well not a baby though ..haha). I think I treat my friends how I want to be treated.

I want to take this time to say "Thank You" to those who have accepted me into their lives. I hope that I am the kind of friend that you need, and the kind that you want. I know that, at times, I may not be the easiest to get along with, but I do promise you that I will always be here for you, and I will always be true. You are precious to me!! I cherish you!!

Here are a few more friendship quotes that I feel should be shared today.

"It takes a long time to grow an old friend" ~John Leonard

"Friendship is like a perennial river which flows forever. It may change it's path but will never ever dry up." ~Pinaki Prasad Mohanty

"A friend is one who believes in you when you have ceased to believe in yourself." ~Unknown

"A Friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway!!!!" ~Unknown

On this note....Spread happiness...tell your friends that you love them!! To all my friends out there...and to the friends who I've yet to meet...I love you!! Thank you for being you!!! *MUAH*
