I’ve been thinking a lot about friends the past few days, and about how much I appreciate them. And since we celebrated Mother’s Day so recently, I got to thinking that there should be a Friendship Day so we can all celebrate our friends. Guess what? There is: International Friendship Day, every year on the 1st Sunday in August. I never knew. So am I any more likely to send a card to my friends on August 6 this year, now that I know about this special date? Well, not likely – I probably wouldn’t even remember my own birthday, except my family won’t let me forget. But it’s good to know that Friendship Day does exist. And if you don’t mind, I think I’ll celebrate it today, just because I really feel like it.
