The Friendship Mission


Welcome to the Friendship Mission. Today, take a close look at the drawing on this card or stop to notice a plant or flower you cross paths with during your day.

CARD 32 FRIENDSHIP (nasturtium): When you look at this nasturtium, who comes to mind? What message do you think that person may have for you? Why not take the time to reach out to them to acknowledge something you are grateful for or to say something you've always wanted to say to them?

Notes from the artist: The nasturtium in my backyard is a familiar friend to me. I really feel its presence through all the events and changes I go through in my life and in my studio. A true companion. This drawing was inspired by a poem a friend wrote and another friend who lives across the country that I was thinking of who was going through a difficult year. I love the message that acknowledges that we need each other. It was a good reminder about how good friendships are strong and connected even across a distance - like the stem that connects each of the leaves and flowers of this plant. We are never really alone when we remember our friends in life.

WE NEED EACH OTHER
EVEN THOUGH WE LIKE TO PRETEND
WE CAN STAND ALONE
