There's nothing more valuable than a friend who will celebrate your successes, comfort you in your losses, and simply be there with a kind word and supportive heart. Friends are one of life's truest blessings. In Life Has No Blessing Like a Good Friend, Mary Engelbreit pays tribute to the joyous moments of friendship, when arms are linked, garlands woven, and smiles crinkle the eyes. In this delightful book, Mary's musings on the nature and value of friendship are accompanied by her many drawings that celebrate it: a mother and daughter baking cookies together, teenage girls declaring they are pals for life, and a young woman quietly reading a letter from home. Mary's friends vow to swim across oceans for each other, and they live by Abraham Lincoln's words: "The better part of one's life consists of one's friendships."
Mary Engelbreit's aphorisms and artwork appear on millions of greeting cards and gift products. Her popularity continues to grow through the success of her books, calendars, home decor, stationery, and crafting lines. Her company is based in St. Louis, Missouri.
