Today is International Day of Friendship

Yes, apparently, today is International Day of Friendship. While it is a day set aside by the UN to further, "the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities and places particular emphasis on involving young people, as future leaders, in community activities that include different cultures and promote international understanding and respect for diversity."

Certainly we all can encourage friendships, inspire peace efforts and build bridges as we strive to understand and respect others.

I want to take this moment on this day to thank you all; you are my friends here on grandma's cookie jar and I consider you all to be blessings from the hand of God! I am so tremendously thankful for each of you and cherish your friendships! So, happy friendship day! :-)
