Thoughts on friendship ~

I think of you often throughout the day, even when I'm not near my computer. So much kindness and inspiration is shared between friends here in this land of blog. I think of what I would like to share with you each day, just like a good friend you talk to on the phone daily. Some days are bursting at the seams with all that's going on but then there are days that are quiet and calm. But still I want to talk to you, just like a dear friend, just to say hello....to say I'm thinking of you....and that I appreciate you ~

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.

Samuel Johnson

May the dreams you hold dearest,
be those which come true.
The kindness you spread,
keep returning to you.

Have a very happy Tuesday dear friends!
xxoo, Dawn

Hey Dawn,

I agree about blog land being such a friendly, inspirational and fun place. I'm so glad I stumbled upon it last fall and am now part of it.

I don't think I could have survived w/o my girlfriends for the past 20+ years!

Vee said...

Awww, I feel the very same way about you, Dawn. Ha! You have such a gift of speaking to your readers as if s/he were the only guest.

Lovely images!

Good morning Dawn,
That was such a sweet post, and a sentiment I, and I'm sure a lot of others, feel as well.

Hope you have a day as beautiful and full of love as you are!

I am taking a little break in my day to pop over and say hello. Isn't it funny but I often think of my blog friends too. Especially when I get a peek of their delicious artwork in a publication! I love your work in the new Somerset Life, my daughter picked me up a copy as a surprise. Have a sweet day!
