Vitamin F .............
Why do we have a variety of friends all so different in character?
How is it we get along with them all? How does each one bring out a "different" part of us?
We joke with one friend. Sit down and talk about serious matters with another. Or laugh a lot. Enjoy a coffee together. Listen to one friend's problems or another's advice for us.
Friends are like pieces of a ...jigsaw puzzle. When completed, they form a treasure box. A treasure of friends!
There are friends who maybe understand us better than we do, who support us through good days and bad days.
Some doctors say friends are good for our health. Dr. Oz calls them Vitamin F (for Friends) and counts the benefits of friends as essential to our well being.
Research shows that people in strong social circles have less risk of depression and terminal strokes. If you enjoy Vitamin F constantly you can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops stress and even in your most intense moments halves the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke.
Make an effort to keep a stock of Vitamin F!
Value your friends and keep in touch with them. Try to see the funny side of things and laugh together, and pray for each other in the tough moments.
Thank you for being one of my Vitamins!
