I stumbled across this poem a long time ago, and then came across it again when I was cle
aning off my computer.  I realized it is fitting for the people in my company.  It is rare when you find a group of people who are located across the country, but are so supportive of each other that every day it astounds me they have never met.  I love each and every one of them like they were my own family.  This is for them.


There is a miracle called friendship,

That dwells within the heart,

And you don't know how it happens,

Or where it starts,

But the happiness it brings you,

Always gives a special l

When you realize friendship,

Is life's most precious gift.
