Today Is “Send A Card To A Friend Day”!

Today is “Send a Card To A Friend Day”!

It’s a day that can easily be overlooked, but for those of us who have genuine friends we value and treasure, it’s a wonderful opportunity to “Thank them for being a friend”.

I don’t know about you, but I am a BIG fan of the Golden Girls, and I have learned a lot about friendship from watching The Golden Girls (over and over I must admit). The long-running sitcom about four housemates in Miami touched the hearts of many viewers, yours truly included. Amidst the laughter, the show offers important lessons about friendship for men and women of all ages.

Here are three of the most valuable lessons about friendship I’ve learned from the Golden Girls.

1. Thank your friends. Like the theme song says, sometimes you want to thank someone just for being a friend. Celebrate your friends’ achievements, and remember to let them know that their presence alone enriches your life.

2. Pals and confidants can help you get through rough times. The girls faced a lot of tough issues over the years, from heartbreaks to hospitalizations. Talking things over with friends who care can help you face major challenges and stressors in your life.

3. Focus on quality over quantity. A few good friends can add more to your life than a long list of so-called friends. The quality of your friendships is more important than the total number.

To this day, the Golden Girls still bring me many laughs and a lot of wisdom about the importance of friendship. Good friends can add joy and meaning to your life at every stage. For older women, having pals and confidantes can help you stay happy and connected.

Think for a moment about your friends and all they add to your life. Then take a moment to send a card to your friends today! It’s “Send a Card To A Friend” Day!
