a year of renewal, a year of growth, a year of enlightenment. This year has been meaningful in so many ways… personally, professionally and spiritually. Pointing the way to the future and evolving how I view Relationships, and the word Friendship.

I would like to share my Favorite Birthday quotes…

” Your birthday is a special time to celebrate the gift of ‘you’ to the world.” – Anonymous

“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced,stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these.” -Susan B. Anthony

and Friendship quotes…

“I’d like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me, I’d like to be the help that you’ve been always glad to be; I’d like to mean as much to you each minute of the day, as you have meant old friend of mine, to me along the way.” -Edgar A. Guest

“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.” -William Randolph Hearst

“Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.” -Tennessee Williams

“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.” -Henri Nouwen

“There are those who pass like ships in the night, who meet for a moment, then sail out of sight with never a backward glance of regret; folks we know briefly then quickly forget. Then there are friends who sail together, through quiet waters and stormy weather, helping each other through joy and through strife. And they are the kind who give meaning to life.” -Unknown

“A good friend is a connection to life, a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.” -Lois Wyse

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”

“Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.” – Sydney Smith

And most importantly… “The only way to have a friend is to be one.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
