We would like to thank all of our contestants for entering our "What I don't take for Granted" contest. We received an overwhelming amount of entries, unfortunately could only choose one.
Congratulations to Ms. G Bean of Vancouver B.C. for your answer! You have just won one of our lap warmers!
This answer was chosen as we felt that it was something that we could all relate to at some point in our lives.

What I don't take for Granted:
I try not to take my friends for "Granted". Friends are the staple of our lives, really they are the bread and butter of our lives and they help shape who we are as people. My friends make up my family unit. Friends are the people that you can count on to answer your calls at any hour of the day, those who listen to us ramble endlessly over our latest breakup, career decision, financial troubles. Rather than be jealous over our successes they are sincerely happy for our successes and support our decisions regardless if they think it is right. Friends tell you not what you want to hear, but what you NEED to hear.
The friends that make up my family live all over the map, we rarely see each other, however; when we do, or simply talk on the phone, we pick up where we left off- our bond is so strong that things change, but it doesn't really change. We grow separately as individuals and at the end of the day, we know that the relationship we have is unchanged and we are always there for each other.
Often, we get busy with day to day chaos, from work-home-pets-children, and we do at some point take everything for "Granted". I always try to ensure that I never take my friends for "Granted" because with out my friends, I would not be the wonderful person I am today. They have helped shaped who I have become and I know that my life would not be complete without the 5 outstanding people I consider to be my friends and without them, I know that I wouldn't be where I am today.
