My Library friends, who I would have never met if we did not have kids:

My Great friends

Kate Thank you for recognizing me in a crowd and for being an instant friend, I look forward to the memories to be made.

My best friend
Will- My best friend on this earth, I love you and thank you for all that you do for me and our family. This post would be too long if I put all the things that I wanted to thank you for.

To anyone whose name is not mentioned here and I have ever called you friend, I think of the song I teach my Daisy Girl Scouts Make new friends, here are the lyrics (we have only learned the first 2 verses, but we will learn more eventually).

Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.

A circle is round,
it has no end.
That's how long,
I will be your friend.

A fire burns bright,
it warms the heart.
We've been friends,
from the very start.

You have one hand,
I have the other.
Put them together,
We have each other.

Silver is precious,
Gold is too.
I am precious,
and so are you.

You help me,
and I'll help you
and together
we will see it through.

The sky is blue
The Earth is green
I can help
to keep it clean

Across the land
Across the sea
Friends forever
We will always be

Thank you for sharing part of yourself with me, I thank you.
