I wanted to put something positive out there in the world today

I couldn't come up with anything on my own, however. Finally, I found something appropriate on

You have blessed us, O [insert diety of your choice],with the gift of friendship,
the bonding of persons in a circle of love.
We thank you for such a blessing:
for friends who love us,who share our sorrows,
who laugh with us in celebration,who bear our pain,
who need us as we need them,who weep as we weep,
who hold us when words fail,and who give us the freedom
to be ourselves.
Bless our friends with health,wholeness, life, and love.

My friendships (including those with my family) mean more to me than I could describe. A friend today gave heartfelt appreciation that was absolutely overwhelming to me. Usually, I try not to be sappy but I gotta say it, "I love my friends!"

I think that the importance of friends is highly underrated. I would be utterly adrift without my friends - both those I see with my eyes and those I only reach through my computer....

If you weren't such a good friend (get it, friend?) there wouldn't be so many appreciative people (like me:D)
