Have you ever had to buy a gift for someone really special but didn't know what to buy? You want it to be special, have meaning but not spend your life savings! I have the prefect gift.
It is called the friendship ball. This gift is a sliver round ball that opens. When you buy this ball it ususally comes with something already inside. The ones I bought had scented soap tucked inside the ball. Ok, you are probably saying so whats the big deal about giving a ball with some soap in it? Let me explain the meaning behind this ball.
When you give a friendship ball there is a tag on it that reads:
A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end. It keeps us together like our cirlce of friends. The treasure insdie for just you to see is the treasure of friendhsip you have granted me.
This ball comes with a lot of meaning but the idea behind it is, you don't keep it. The idea is you keep what is inside and when a friend is down, going through some rough times, you but something inside and give it away. This ball keeps getting passed on between friends, each time with something inside to cheer them up.
I have been doing this with my sisters and daughter for about 3 years now, and each time I am given the friendship ball it puts a smile on my face and I can't wait to fill it and cheer someone else up.
