My granddaughter was too shy to blow out her candles, so she got a little help from her friends. We all need friends. Friends share in our joys and our sorrows. They lighten our burdens and give us hope for tomorrows.
Ecclesiastes 4:9–12 says, “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
“I am thankful for the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.” –Nancie J. Carmody, writer
