Make a Friend Day

Everyone needs a friend.

A friend is someone who accepts you for who you are and still likes you.

A friend laughs with you and cries with you.

A friend is always there for you.

In order to have a friend, you must be a friend.

Today is Make a Friend Day. If you see someone who might need a special someone in their life, put yourself out there and give them a chance. It’s a win-win for all!

“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” ~Thomas Aquinas
