“There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, and just live a little better.” -unknown
Yeah…those are true friends and having them makes life SO MUCH BETTER!
I have been incredibly blessed in my life to have amazing friends who have been a part of my life for many years. I was lucky in that my business endeavors gave me the ability to choose many of the people I spent my time with working with each day and they became dear lifelong friends. I was lucky in that the neighborhood I moved into 15 years ago is full of incredible people who have all become dear friends. Most of all I am lucky that I consider my family to be my very best friends. Yes I am blessed to have amazing friends and I honestly can’t imagine what my life would be like without them in it.
Friendships are something we can easily take for granted if we don’t make time to focus on them. Summertime is a great time of year to take the opportunity to do some fun things with your friends. Go on a picnic, go boating for a day, take a walk in the evenings when its cooling down, go swimming at someone’s pool, play a game of Pickle-Ball or tennis, go see a blockbuster movie, or one of my personal favorites, have a game night where you all get together and play card games and board games and eat yummy food.
It doesn’t really matter what the activity is. What matters is that you are spending quality time together and remembering all the reasons you love being friends! So get up from your computer and grab your phone and call a friend and make fun plans together. Life is short and like the opening quote says, good friends make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, and live a little better!
Thank heaven for True Friends!
