Jan. 29, 2016 – As in all of our lives, we meet many people.  Some become friends and others become best friends.  Sometimes being a friend takes a little work and other times two people have just the right connection so that being friends is easy.  And every once in a while, as in the story of Froggie’s Best Friend, friendship happens when we least expect it.  When you find that special best friend, you can share all your joys and sorrows.  You feel comfortable enough to talk into the long hours of the night or sit quietly and just enjoy each other’s company.
