National Best Friend Day

It's National Best Friends Day!

 I think you're fortunate if you have at least one good friend in your life -I'm happy to say that I do.

I think the older we become our friendships are a lot different - most of us are more cautious of the people that we have in our life. For example, I know a lot of people and communicate with many of them on a daily basis, but only a few (2) know what's happening in my world. They know the ups and downs and the good and bad of my life - I'm blessed to have them as my friend.

I was thinking back when I was young and how desperate everyone seemed to want friends. Of course, most of them wanted to be a part of the popular group and wear the other half of the best friends necklace. But, you grow up and realize that the popular group really weren't that popular, and that you need genuine and loyal people in your life.

So cheers to my best friends! ( you know who you are) May we go through our golden years with continued laughter and memories. When the day comes that we can no longer remember, may we still be blessed with laughter. LOVE YOU GUYS!

It's also Name Your Poison Day - thought that was fitting. Have a drink and bond some more with that best friend of yours. Happy Friday!

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
