It’s a New Year!

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I would be remiss in saying that I haven’t been working on new ventures and new goals for 2021.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to give back or pay it forward. Sometimes it is so easy to spot a friend. They look like you, talk like you, and are very close to being you.

Favor please.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to give back or pay it forward. What does a friend need to do or not do to be considered a friend?

For my daughterContinue reading “Friends do things different with the same meaning.”
