A few of the highlights for Gretchen's book chapter 6, Make Time for Friends that I especially want to work on,
I love this one...but not on the material line of things.
I want to think more about how I can be more generous with the following things I give to my friends:
*remembering what they've told me about their life and follow up on that. Maybe offering to help if it's something they might need help with
*I want to offer more cheers/encouragement. Like one of Gretchen's thoughts was, "One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy" and vs. "One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself."
A card I made with a favorite stamp set sentiment,
But one thing I do know...
a true, hearty friendship=a wonderful happiness!!
See you next month!
