Happy Friendship Day!
The 1st Sunday in August is Friendship Day. It’s also Sisters Day, Forgiveness Day and American Family Day. It’s crazy how just about every day of the year is some sort of day ….
Friendship is the foundation to any relationship. A friend shares dreams, sorrows and secrets – don’t you share these things with your family as well? I believe that family members are friends too.
Friendships need to be nurtured. The only way this happens is by spending time together so take the time today (and every day) to show your family and friends what they mean to you.
Here’s one of my favorite poems about friendship. I believe it describes perfectly – what a true friend is.
If I Could Catch a Rainbow
By Sandra Lewis Pringle
If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it, just for you,
And, share with you, its beauty, on the days you’re feeling blue.
If I could, I would build a mountain, you could call your very own.
A place to find serenity, a place just to be alone.
If I could, I would take your troubles, and toss them into the sea.
But, all these things, I’m finding, are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain, or catch a rainbow fair;
but, let me be, what I know best,
A Friend, who’s always there.
I promise to defend you, should the occasion ever rise,
And, I promise to wipe away the tears,
which might stream from your weeping eyes.
Let me be the trusted Friend, the one that you know best.
I will never leave you, on that, you can surely rest.
