Shriver Gets By With Friend

It’s not surprising it has been a difficult year for Maria Shriver.  The ex first lady of California filed for divorce from her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger.  She received encouragement from a friend who has a mental challenge.

Shriver got an email from him saying, “You’re my best friend Maria and you will never be left out.”  It made her realize and appreciate the importance of the gift of friendship in hard circumstances.

“I appreciate your support, particularly this year, for sticking with me,” Shriver recently told fans.

Shriver shared this experience with about her friend with the mental challenge at a Best Buddies charity gathering. The gathering raised $4.5 million for the organization.  Best Buddies was founded by Maria’s brother Anthony Shriver.
