This week I was reminded how important friends are. Friends are an indulgence of the soul. Whether they live up the road or across the country, friends can help the unbearable become bearable, they can celebrate your victories and console you in your losses, they can make you laugh and cry, and tell you when you’re being unreasonable.

Time spent with friends is one of the great joys in life. Whether you have a coffee date, a girls night out, or an annual retreat. Spending time chatting about every day things–family, work, life. Sending a card or a note or a gift to let someone know you’re thinking of them not only uplifts them–it can uplift you too. So take a little time this week and reach out to your friends. Make a call, send a message, mail a card, have a cuppa. Whatever you do, enjoy each other.
