Dedicated to my friend, Adam. Why? That’s easy .. because he believes in me, inspires me, forgives me, sees me, makes me laugh, and he makes all these quotes come to life. Adam, please know, as long as we’re friends, you, my dear, will never be lonely.

  1. What beautiful messages in this post! So moving. Friendship is quite possibly the greatest blessing and gift. It is closely tied with love.

    I don’t like the movie very much, but the quote from Annie, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard”, is especially wonderful to me.
