Vitamin F

I just had to post this wonderful note that Jean Moore of Altered Pages sent out to us simply because it is a wonderful sentiment about friendships! Thanks Jean!!

"Why do I have a variety of friends who are all so different in character? How
can I get along with them all? I think that each one helps to bring out a
"different" part of me.

With one of them I am polite. I joke with another friend. I sit down and talk
about serious matters with one. With another I laugh a lot. I may have a drink
with one. I listen to one friend's problems. Then I listen to another one's
advice for me.

My friends are all like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. When completed, they form a
treasure box. A treasure of friends! They are my friends who understand me
better than myself, who support me through good days and bad days. We all pray
together and for each other.

Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health. Dr. Oz calls
them Vitamins F (for Friends) and counts the benefits of friends as essential to
our well being. Research shows that people in strong social circles have less
risk of depression and terminal strokes. If you enjoy Vitamins F constantly you
can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops
stress and even in your most intense moments it decreases the chance of a
cardiac arrest or stroke by 50%. I'm so happy that I have a stock of Vitamins F!

In summary, we should value our friends and keep in touch with them. We should
try to see the funny side of things and laugh together, and pray for each other
in the tough moments.

Thank you for being one of my Vitamins!"

Very well said Jean!
Thanks to all for being my vitamins too!
