To all the friends who helped me grow. I have learned to appreciate relationships and all they have to offer. Happy or sad, flowing or challenging. Our interactions and life experiences provide opportunities for growth and compassion. Some of you demonstrated all your strength and showed me courage. Others provided me a glimpse of the passionate self and showed me the importance of trust. Passion is my heartbeat and I enjoy its company. To all of you and those who have passed, I say thank you for your presence. Life is a gift. Appreciate every twist and turn. Find the beauty within.
