Tokens of friendship

This section is designed to hold expressions of friendship, esteem and affection from other web masters and designers. They are not sought. They are unconditional and not competitive. They are received and displayed in the spirit in which they are presented.

O.N.Z.C.D.A Friendship Award

"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship." ( Ralph Waldo Emerson - adapted). No matter our path in life we all have occasions where we meet or, as in the case of the internet, communicate with many very special people. Lasting friendships evolve with bonds so strong that it often seems as though we have 'really known' each other forever.
Kind regards, Rhonda O.N.Z.C.D.A.(December 4th 2009)
