For some people it is the accumulation of money, or the things money can buy, that defines who they are and when, or if, they are successful.
For others, and I count myself among them, it is the friends one has and the warm feelings enjoyed whenever they are near that defines success.
Sometimes friends just make you feel welcome. Sometimes they offer a word of encouragement when it feels like the bottom is falling out of your world. And sometimes a small gift helps make your spirit soar.
