My Review:

"The Gift of Friendship" is a great collection of stories focusing on friendship.  Life is so busy in general with work, family, just everyday responsibilities in life that it is so easy to all of a sudden find yourself not having friends or more likely not being a good friend.  This book celebrates friendships, but also recognizing that friendships can be hard to maintain, but yet they are something that are so important.  There are several sections to this book; my personal favorite is pursuing friendship and also the hospitality one.  Throughout life, friends and friendships change based upon our roles and lifestyle as a child to college student to working to being a mom.   I really enjoyed this book as I found myself relating to many of the stories.  Also, the layout is very visually pleasing with pictures interspersed and the layout of the pages.  I highly recommend this for all women to read, no matter where they are at in life as friendships are so special and treasured, whether you have "old" friendships or creating new friendship ties.
