“Friends are the Family We Choose”
When I think about the different phases of my life, all of them involve friendships. Some of those friendships have lasted a lifetime and others seemed like only a season. Whether it was different jobs or different cities, a new client or an event in my neighborhood, each experience and opportunity in my life continued to introduce new friendships. For me, it took 45 years and an accident that nearly took my life to learn the true meaning of friendship. I was given a 10% chance of survival and named a medical miracle. My friends were by my side the entire time. People are kind. People are nice. People care. Friendship is so much more than we can ever imagine and without it, I cannot say I would be where I am today.
After my accident, the one element that stood out to me above all was how much friends helped me heal. Messages of love and support, visits, calls, videos, flowers, photos and more got me through each day with a positive attitude and an overwhelming feeling of love. We all have “things” going on in our lives and sometimes the smallest act of kindness from a “friend” can make the biggest difference in our ability to overcome obstacles in our lives. So for me, friendships should be celebrated all year! Kindness heals.
Friendsgiving truly has no concrete definition or perhaps even an origin; some say it started with the classic TV show ‘Friends’ and others think it was born on the internet. Whatever your definition may be, we want to help clarify what we believe Friendsgiving stands for and hope you agree.
So how do you celebrate your friends? Host a dinner party and invite your friends!. You might be celebrating a new baby or a recent engagement. You might invite all your friends over to see your new house or celebrate a new job. There are so many reasons to celebrate friendships.
