Tuesday, May 15th: New friends, old friends; they’re all treasures. Celebrate ALL your friends during NATIONAL NEW FRIENDS, OLD FRIENDS WEEK. Jan Yager sponsored this week “to celebrate and make time for old friends and new friends and remember how vital friends are for our emotional and physical health and well-being and even professional or career success.”
Have you heard the saying ‘Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, one is gold’? The more silver and gold we have in our lives (friendship silver and gold that is, not speaking monetarily), the richer our lives are. This week let’s celebrate all the valued friendships. Try to find a way each day to honor our old friends and new friends. Try lunch with a new friend at work. Make a phone call to an old friend on the way home. Write a short note to an old friend, expressing why you value them. Short on time this week? Even a quick email or e-card is possibly in today’s high-tech world. Celebrate your friends … all of them.
