Today is one of two days that celebrate our best friends.  Best Friends Day is celebrated on June 8th and August 15th. (Why? That I can't answer but maybe Google can.)  It is often said that there are three types of friends in this life---friends for a reason, friends for a season and friends for a lifetime.  My childhood neighborhood was filled with children.  These two girls were my BFFs.  My friendship with girl on the right faded as we entered high school and developed different interests.  The blondie on the left?  A lifetime friend!  A lifetime friend is like a diamond---precious and rare.

There are many symbols for friendship:

The jade plant, pineapple, yellow rose are symbols of friendship.The Irish Claddagh is probably one of the most recognized symbols of love and friendship.  Animals?  The dolphin, turtle and frog are symbolic of strong friendships.  Enjoy your friends today!
