Friends

(a picture for you)

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.


My sweet blogging friend, Miss Jen also holds this quote as special!

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)
