Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND,

If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends.


Now send this to every friend you have, and to your family members.
This was sent to me by a friend.

Have a blessed and peaceful day in the Lord,
