February is Friendship Month

I would have notified you sooner, but better late than never!

February is International Friendship Month! Let's get to celebrating!

What can we do to honor our friends and show them our appreciation? What sort of kindness will your pals appreciate? Below are a few ideas:

  • Write a heartfelt letter expressing your love and devotion
  • Take a friend to lunch or make a special dinner
  • For every day of the rest of this month, leave your pal a special note in a place that he or she will find it
  • Send an e-card
  • Make a friendship collage showing pictures of you together through the years
  • Write a funny poem!
  • Take a picture of yourself holding a sign that says, "Thanks for being a great friend!" (or similar sentiment). What a fun photo for your pal to have as a reminder of your devotion.
  • Make a mini book and on each page write one thing you love about your friend. Make as many pages as you want!
  • Send a really embarrassing singing telegram!
  • Pamper your friend with a spa day or similar treat
  • Or even just a simple hug

Do you have any other ideas? Please add them!

I'd like to write a poem
About a grounded nomad I have met
She doesn't like to roam
She's grounded (that means set)
She funny, sweet and quite sincere
I liked her right away
Her true self shines bright and clear
Plus she likes to play :)
In case you haven't figured out
What I'm doing on this post
I'll tell you with a great big shout
(And yes, I am a boast)
Friendship Month has started now
Wendy wanted us to know
I thank her with a dainty bow
But now I have to go
I whisper as I leave this page
(And btw with a knee that will not bend)
Wendy is all the rage
SHE is a wonderful friend!

I couldn't think of any other ideas :D This off-the-top-of-my-head poem doesn't really do justice to how sweet I think you are but maybe you get the idea ;) ♥
