Good For The Heart

Isn't it nice when we like what research proves to be true?  We like it that chocolate and a glass of wine are good things for our health.  We like that Extra gum and Trident sweetened with Xylitol are good for our teeth.  We like that having a pet to love and care for...and love us good for us.

And we love that having friends is a very healthy thing to do.  Laughing together, sharing secrets, playing, praying and generally having a "go to" group when you need them is good for the heart!

So here's to our friends this Valentine's Day.  If you have a friend you've lost touch with, this might be the perfect day to be in touch.  

Friends are like balloons;

Once you let them go, you might not get them

back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own

lives and problems that we may not even notice

that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so

caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we

forget what's right and wrong.. Sometimes we just

don't realize what real friendship means until it

is too late. I don't want to let that happen so

I'm going to tie you to my heart so I never lose

you.  (Source Unknown)
