Thankful for Friendship

Happy Thanksgiving! May your time with friends and family be rich with laughter, good food and delightful conversation.

Today’s word is: FRIENDSHIP

• I first found the following quote while reading Ray Bradbury‘s, Fahrenheit 451:

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.
James Boswell

• Straight from my Thanksgiving roadtrip playlist — a song by Waterdeep » So Good to Have a Friend.

• And my final offering is in honour of my favourite author and the upcoming Hobbit film (though this quote is from Lord of the Rings):

“But it does not seem that I can trust anyone,” said Frodo… “It all depends on what you want,” put in Merry. “You can trust us to stick with you through thick and thin — to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours — closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo.”
J.R.R. Tolkien
