It is always a pleasure to be in the company of those who wish you well.
You know when you have exchanged friendship for family, you can always tell.
Those whom are dear seem more like a brother, a sister, a father or a mother.
You become so connected, so familiar with one another.
Sharing with each other our stories of both happiness and pain.
No cattiness, competition, for we are family, what do we have to gain?
Always supportive of each others accomplishments, success and dreams.
We are always there for each other it seems.
No envy, no jealousy, nor animosity in our hearts;
With exchanges of smiles, hugs, and warm wishes; nothing can keep us apart.
