I have a friend who, no matter how I'm feeling, when I talk to him, even if it's just for a few moments, I immediately feel better. If I'm feeling so-so, after speaking with my friend, I feel peaceful, open, alive and awake. If I'm already feeling good, when I talk to my friend, I feel very, very good. It's interesting how some people somehow always bring out the best in us. They make us very happy that we are not all alone on this earth. Sometimes the best thing we can do is connect for a few moments with a friend who brings us the joy of life. Sometimes it may not even be a human being: a dog or a cat may be the friend who reminds us of the goodness of our life. We are lucky that our hearts have drawn such friends. No matter who, let each of us have such a friend and call on him or her often.
