Take time to have a good time with your besties on Sunday, August 5 – Friendship Day! It doesn’t matter if they live right next door to you or they’re on the other side of the world! Solid friendships that stand the test of time and distance deserve to be celebrated. We can gain so much if we just take a few minutes out of our busy days to think about the friends who’ve become like family through the years and how much they matter to us.
Why do we even bother to do this? The answer is simple: We do this because we love them — and we know that they love us back.
