Today is International Day of Friendship. Everyone benefits from friends. They keep us company and lend a helping hand when we need it. Without close relationships, health tends to suffer. In fact, loneliness is as bad as obesity or smoking when it comes to causing health problems.
Take some time today to express your gratitude for the friends in your life. For this spell you will need a small bouquet of flowers that represent friendship. Sunflower, iris, or geranium work well and are readily available in stores. Ivy, another symbol of friendship, makes good greenery. Put the flowers in a vase on your altar. Then say:
Flowers of friendship, free of strife,
Name your friends—the more the better—and state why you feel grateful for them. When you finish, say the verse again. Then go do something nice for your friends to show your gratitude.
