Now for a few words of wisdom: Friendship is an interesting word. A friend is someone who knows all about you and still likes you. And a ship, of course, is a large vessel. So that means that a friend-ship is a vessel that holds two friends. A friend-ship can help you reach your destination, your goals in life. A friend-ship can carry you over the roughest waters, the most difficult times.
A friend-ship can provide you shelter in an emotional storm. Homer, a Greek poet, said: Two friends, two bodies, one soul. If you have a close friendship, count your blessings. The friendship can take you far. If you don't, remember the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson: The only way to have a friend is to be one.
With something to think about, Make it a great day, or not, the choice is yours!And remember patriots, keep your heads up and your minds open!Thank you and have a great day!
