I don't think anyone should ever underestimate the power of a good friend. I have been lucky most of my life to always have friends. I find it especially good to have friends at work. They always make your day better. They are there to help you when you are having a bad day and even when it isn't a bad day they make you feel good. The best thing for me is when I need a little boost that you can go talk to a friend and they always notice the little things like when you do your hair different or when you have new clothes on. These might seem like dumb little things to some, but it usually makes my day 10 times better.
I have to mention the best friend of all... that is my husband. There aren't words to discribe what he means to me accept that he truly is my best friend.
