Post A Friendship Blessing 
My mom just forwarded me this prayer from the old priest at the Catholic church I attended growing up. I love it. Thought I'd share...

"This is a prayer from a book by John O’Donohue. The title of the book is Anam Cara. “Anam” is the Gaelic word for soul; “cara” is the word for friend. So “anam cara” means soul friend. The prayer is a blessing of friendship. Pray it for the people who are dear to you.

A Friendship Blessing

May you be blessed with good friends.
May you learn to be a good friend to yourself.
May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where there is love, warmth, feeling and forgiveness.
May this change you.
May it transfigure that which is negative, distant or cold in you.
May you be brought into the real passion, kinship and affinity of belonging.
May you treasure your friends.
May you be good to them and may you be there for them. May they bring you all the blessings, challenges, truth and light that you need for your journey.
May you never be isolated.
May you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with your “anam cara.”"
