"Those friends thou hast, and their adoptions tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel."
One of the greatest gifts we are given in this lifetime is the gift of
friendship. Our friends are our treasures! We learn so much from
each other. Think about the first friend you ever had. Remember
the joy you felt just hanging out and playing together? Chances
are that the friends we had in childhood are different than the
friends we have today. People change and grow and move away and go on
to lead separate lives. But we remember those friends, and they
remember us! We learned from them then, and are where we are now in
part because of those friendships.
