"Friendship's a noble name, 'tis love refined."
-Susannah Centlivre, The Stolen Heiress (1703)
It's interesting that one of the top-rated TV shows right now is called "Friends." I think it's because that's what we all want. We all want people in our lives whom we love and who love us back. People we
can count on, people we can laugh with, people who appreciate us for
who we are. The theme song for that show says: "I'll be there for you"
and that says so much! We need to cherish our friends, both old and
new, and pay attention to those relationships, and nurture them because
they are important to us.
