FC: the best way to keep a friend? BE ONE.... tonight or tomorrow, pick up the phone and tell them you care about them. Tell them you miss them; or tell them you're sorry. Arrange a visit. Make some tea or coffee, or enjoy a glass of wine. Take a walk or go for a run together. Enjoy the sun. Eat a popsicle. Feed the birds, laugh, hug, cry, reminisce. | WITH FRIENDS... orlando, fLORIDA august 2010 book I

28: I met these three beautiful women in the midst of my personal spiritual searching. I found myself, I found who I am, and what I am worth, while the work of Jesus Christ is all along the center of it all. All though I was not instantly drawn to Cherry during the first year of our meeting, it makes it more profound that her & I created a bond that undeniably irreplaceable. Ellen on the other hand is simply fun, she reminds me of what life should always be, LAUGHTER & HAPPINESS. Lea, how do you describe someone that exude the TRUE meaning of FRIENDSHIP.
29: I consider myself BLESSED beyond anything imaginable. I love that these three women takes me "UP" and brings me - "DOWN" to remember that in order to appreciate what is "UP", I must remember "DOWN".... but everything in between the UP's and DOWN are the three of them, ready to be the "FRIEND." I appreciate all you beautiful ladies. My life has gotten a lot more meaningful since I have you. I look forward to all other experiences that this life has to offer all of us. Mahal ko kayo!
