F is for FRIENDS!

"Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting
that a new world is born."
Anais Nin
"Friendship is unnecessary,
like philosophy, like art...
It has no survival value;
rather is one of those things
that give value to survival."
C. S. Lewis
"Grief can take care of itself,
but to get the full value of joy
you must have somebody to divide it with."
Mark Twain

"Thus nature has no love for solitude,
and always leans, as it were, on some support;
and the sweetest support is found
in the most intimate friendship."
Cicero

"The best mirror is an old friend."
George Herbert
"The happiest moments my heart knows
are those in which it is pouring forth its affections
to a few esteemed characters."
Thomas Jefferson
I could NOT survive without mine!
Do you have a best friend you can count on for everything?
Mine would be Jen.
Gary's is Ben.
Kaish told me has 24 and he can't pick one favorite.
I love that kid!
Happy Wednesday one and all!
You can find lots of great links at
Check 'em out and make some new friends : ).

What a fantastic post! I've moved too much to have one bestie anymore. I have lots of girlfriends but nobody I let get that close because I got sick of leaving them when we moved. Now I just keep a little wall up. I shouldn't, huh?

I love the pictures and all the quotes. So cool. I think that is great that he couldn't pick just one friend. So diplomatic.
Sounds like something Model would say.

That last photo made me laugh so hard. The look on his face is absolutely priceless.

I wanted to let you know that I have a very special place in my heart for adoption. I am a birth mom to two kids...I knew it was the best decision for them and I love their other mom to death.
