It's important to express what a friend means to us and to thank them for being the great companion that they are. I hope the ideas in this article help you to find the right words to show gratitude to your friend. Hopefully, it will help to spur your own ideas as well.

Today, more than ever before, it is an extra-special feeling to receive a card in the mail—or any other way. Sometimes it seems that this world is just too busy, but it's important to show your appreciation for the good things in your life. Our friends mean so much to us and we need to take the time to show them our appreciation. Why not let them know just how much you care about them! Below are some great ideas for what to write to them in a card.

True friends know each other by heart.

Using Quotes in Your Friendship Card. Sometimes Someone Else Has Said It Better

Sometimes, when we want to write to a friend, we can't always find the right words or figure out the perfect thing to say. That doesn't mean you shouldn't write them. Your friends will appreciate receiving a card even if you have to borrow someone else's words. Just make sure that the quote you use is heartfelt and honest. Make sure to choose a quote that matches the nature of your friendship and speaks to the personality of the friend to whom you are writing.

My best friend is the one that brings out the best in me.

— Henry Ford
