“Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend.” — Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson
Unlike relationships we are born with, like parents, siblings, and cousins, our friends are completely of our own choosing. Without any pretense or obligation, they are the people we choose to share our life with. They unselfishly offer comfort, encouragement, understanding, and laughter. In honor of these most-special people (and in recognition of International Day of Friendship on July 30th), this week is all about friendship to give you all the good feelings.
