Came across What is Friendship and it got me to thinking about the different friendships I have in my life and are we sharpening each other or are they just dulling my edges. Wanted to share what inspired me this morning and also give you all somethings to ponder on throughout your day.

Thanks for my Morning Inspiration….

Friendship is a social system that provides reciprocated comfort, protection and support. Friends share grief, pain, happiness, excitement and disappointment. They become “A single soul dwelling in two bodies.” Aristotle
