What is a friend?  Is it the person you see everyday at work or home?  Is it your husband or wife?  Maybe a friend is that you can come in sit down and tell your misery to.   What ever makes someone your friend it  is all connected to feelings. Feelings of acceptance, security, and compatibility make for friendships. 

Working with people who are dying makes me take a look at my friends all the time.  I see such injustices and beautiful friendships that that endured over many seasons.  For me my friends are some of the finest people in the world.  They have so many funny stories, touching moments, and sometimes bad times but are truly amazing people.

Every Friday night (or mostly) we have girls wine and cheese with cocktail of the week thrown in for good measure.  It started with my friend Denise and me.  Little by little we add more and more.  I look at group of people from professional to stay at home mom and think I am so lucky to have such a great group of friends to call mine. Friendship must be cultivated and cared for.  You have to find ways to let people know who much you care and appreciate them.  Take a moment and inventory your friends.  When was the last time you told them you loved them or you prayed for them.  When was the last time you did something for someone just to make them feel good.  Love you friends and show them all the time how much they are needed in your life.
