I braved my symptoms today to pose a simple question: If love heals, are your friends doing it? It is no coincidence that the ABC News study discussing the healing power of friendship came out so close to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Everyday acts of kindness — no matter how small — have a healing effect on those facing health care battles. Life becomes more enriching when you focus on healthy friendships, instead of people who take up space and energy.
Please pardon the appearance of my friend, SavannahWhite, who is always worth my energy.
