Today I am grateful for friends old and new; for the joy, wisdom and hope they bring to my life.
For old friends that have supported me through my foibles and follies, laughed, cried and celebrated with me. Loved me at my worst and cheered me at my best. For new friends who have welcomed and supported me.
Because of the kindness and pervading goodness of friends, I dare to believe that people are inherently decent and kind; that good always triumphs over evil. That bright rays of the future are even now breaking through the threatening clouds.
