RIBS: That’s What Friends Are For…

Quote: “Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know that they’re always there.”

This is a mix about Friends. This is a mix for Friends.

I was reminded recently of the value of good, true friends. I will be forever grateful for the kindness they showed me that day. I’m really not a great writer when it comes to expressing how I feel. I’m much better at letting my music speak the words/feelings that I cannot. The selections in this mix, the lyrics of the songs, sum up to a great degree what I want those special friends to know. Basically, I am a better person because I have you in my life. Beacause you are my friend.

Call your friends. Go visit your friends. Tell your friends you love them. And, if you’re like me and words fail you sometimes, give them a copy of this mix. Let them know how important they are in your life.

Enjoy!

  1. Alright now, I stopped reading at #6, because that was going to be on my next ‘cast. You’re keeping on my toes! Good work, Mr. Grundy!

  2. The Friendly Chef be at it again. Funny how friendships develop, and I can say, you have helped me add to my list.
