Friendship is golden

Thursday, May 17, 2012

FRIENDS Sometimes we allow ourselves to think that we have no friends. I guess it is just the human part of us to think that way. Especially we think that way when things are not going as well as they should. It is my belief that those thoughts often have their beginning when we struggle […]
