I am reminded of the blessing of friendship... my precious lifetime friends and my newly acquired blogging friends... here is one of my favorite quotes from an unknown author...
A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
A close friend one day shared the following quote with our small group about the joy and blessings of close friendship:
"Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
George Eliot (also attributed to another)
