12 Days of Christmas – Friendship

20161215_005536

A part of Christmas for me always revolves around friends.  Whether it is co-workers, neighbors or friends for years from school there is always some get together.  A shopping trip together, a lunch to unwind from the shopping, a cookie exchange, even a company gathering.  There are cards to send out to reconnect with friends we have lost touch with in distance and schedules that are too busy.  I can’t count the number of times I run into someone I haven’t seen in ages while shopping.  Friends make life bearable.  I have always believed they are the “family” we choose.  Call a friend up and take some time to let them know you still care. This Christmas embrace the warmth of friendship, one of the greatest gifts of all.
