Friends are the Elixir of Life! 

 
 
Whether it is Pooh Bear and Piglet, Charlotte and Wilbur, or Amos and Boris, we know that good friends can look very different on the outside – after all, opposites attract! 
 
We also know that good friends make life worth living – they help us love more and see life from a different angle.
 
 
In fact, good friends are a lot like good books.
 
They encourage us.
 
 
They help us see the world a little differently.
 
 
They can make us feel bold and brave.
 
 
They can make us laugh or cry.
 
 
They can make us wonder.
 
They remind us that we are not alone in this world.
 
Margaret Drabble maintained that we were put on this earth to “endeavor in the face of the impossible.”  Good friends help us do just that – endeavor!!
