A hug is like a boomerang – you get it back right away. Bil Keane

Really? A day set aside just to acknowledge our friends? Well, happy Friendship Day, friends! We certainly hope that we (and you) let our friends know more than once a year how much we love them.

In honor of this auspicious day, we are having one of our infamous randomly drawn giveaways. Woohoo! Just leave us a comment with the first name of one of your dearest friends, and perhaps you may ‘win’ the following book to give to them.

Us! Celebrating the Power of Friendship, by Mary Anne Radmacher, offers a sweet tribute to friendship, that is beautifully illustrated and originally written. “Commiserate and celebrate the power of friends.”


Good luck in the drawing. What are you waiting for… go call your friends and tell them how much you love them! 🙂

  1. My friend, Robin, will always be in my heart. We’ve been friends since we were in elementary school. We didn’t always “get along” very well back then, but our friendship has certainly grown, matured, and changed for the better over the past 40 years. There’s something to be said for friends that have known each other that long, who know you that well, and choose to love you anyway! And every time we’re together, we’re just giggly kids again—the best!

  2. What a wonderful quote. I am lucky to have many dear friends, but one that I really love as a sister is my friend Rosemary. Even though we don’t see each other but every once in awhile we always take up like we never left off. Those are the friends you can hold forever in your heart!

  3. I have been good friends with my friend Jayne. Even though she has moved all over the US we have always kept in touch. Now we both live in the same town and we can grow old together – ha, ha!!

  4. I’ve been best of friends with Toni since we were 13 years old. We’re now in our late 50’s and just as close, maybe even more so. I would love to share this special gift with her, she’s the best!

  5. Every day should be “Best Friends” even when there are too many miles between you. Kari is my BFF even though we are at opposite ends of the country, boo hoo! , Jan in TN

  6. I would love to win this for my special pal & partner in crime, Linda! She has been going through tough & stressful times with her husband & family. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to brighten up her face with a wonderful smile?!

  7. This is super, super sweet :O) 🙂 🙂 One of my dearest friends is Athena. We’ve been friends since we were about five years old. We met in kindergarten and have been friends ever since. We’re both now in our 30s 🙂 🙂 Friendship is precious for sure, especially when you have friendships that last a lifetime 😉 🙂 Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather 🙂 🙂 🙂
