Thoughts on precious friendship ~

      An Irish Friendship Wish

        May there always be work for your hands to do;
        May your purse always hold a coin or two;
        May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
        May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
        May the hand of a friend always be near you;
        May God fill your heart with gladness and cheer.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of Nature.

"It is a sweet thing, friendship, a dear balm,
A happy and auspicious bird of calm..."


"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10

My friends are my estate.

Emily Dickinson

A friend accepts us as we are yet helps us to be what we should.

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.

Author Unknown

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us,
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures,
have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing
and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares

Henri Nouwen

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Marcel Proust

The presence of a dear friend can make all the difference in the world.....
Thank you all for your precious friendship!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday ~
hugs and love,
