Give the gift of friendship with an open heart and mind

Friendship is one of the greatest gifts in the world. The greatest treasure in our lives!

People are so complex…such a mix of the past present and their hopes for the future. We all have demons that we fight. And we all win our battles with these demons on good days and lose the battle on the bad days. We all have strengths that come so naturally it seems to make others envious, and each of us has weaknesses that we can’t seem to shake no matter how hard we try.

What was bad yesterday may have given us the knowledge and experience to evolve into someone greater because of the struggles we faced. What we do today may change who we ever thought we could be.

An experience that was unexpected can change our heart and our minds forever. Newly discovered loves can shape who we are tomorrow.

I have learned that the best outlook a person can have on life is to Never say Never! No one knows what tomorrow holds and no one knows how life will change and grow them!

In this season of love and giving….I challenge each of you to give the gift of friendship. Give it to the people that you hold dear and also to someone that you may have failed to get to know. Someone that you didn’t click in the past. Possibly life has made them a person that is now your perfect friend! I challenge you to value difference; look passed one or two traits in a person that may get in the way of full sight of who this person is.

Give the gift of friendship to another person. If we all do this, I truly believe the world will be a better place. Love will be more present in each person’s heart!

Happy holidays and I thank you to all of my dear friends for giving me the gift of YOU every day of my life! 
