Friday, June 8th: Today celebrates a special treasure. It’s BEST FRIEND DAY, a day to enjoy and appreciate your best friend … all of them! An anonymous poem is circulating that begins: “People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.”

Our life is filled with a variety of best friends. Some come and go for different reasons and seasons, and some are for a lifetime. Cherish and treasure them all. As John Leonard says, “It takes a long time to grow an old friend.”

Celebrate life; celebrate your best friends. Take time out of your day to spend some time with one or more of them. Give one a call. Jot a short note, telling them how special they are to you. Take a few minutes and send them a quick ‘You’re special to me’ email.
