'The Golden Girls" Knew About Friendship
(Los Angeles, California)
True friendship is hard to find. Long lasting, endearing friendship is scarcer. The sample personal thank you letter captures the essence of both in a way that i think both of us can relate to, at least I do. Read, enjoy and I hope it inspires you to write your own.
On the TV series, “The Golden Girls,” the credits are accompanied by a song with the lyrics, “Thank you for being a friend.” That is followed by a funny plot where the friendship of the series’ stars is shown in sweet and humorous ways. They scold each other, laugh at each other, share evil (and delicious) food filled with more calories than their combined ages) and personify friendship, love and caring.
I want to say to you, “Thank you for being a friend.” I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support, encouragement and that ear you keep lending to hear – no, to listen to – me talking about what’s wrong.
It is my hope that we will still be friends as we age and become “Golden Girls” (40 is the new 20, so that won’t be for a while, right!). Thank you for all you do and for being such a terrific friend. No offense to those on Facebook, MySpace or Friendster, but you are a true friend for the ages; and I’m glad we keep clicking.
