One Sunday, my girlfriends called to say that they would be arriving to baby-sit my two boys and that they were ordering my husband and me to go out to eat. They brought us a gift certificate to the most romantic restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious dinner. Later, when I entered my bedroom, I noticed a single rose on our pillows. Under the rose was a card, signed with the good wishes of all the people I worked with and a check. This gift allowed us to make two mortgage payments. It is a true friend who goes the extra mile to find what it is that you and your family really need.
