Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

And the person who was just a friend is... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

Irish Blessing
May there always be work for your hands to do, may your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
