What a gift!

I got to spend another whole day with my sister in law Shirley, and then an added bonus was being with yet another sister in law, then to go have dinner out with a friend tonight. I love the quote I heard the other day that said “we should gather friends like flowers” I sooooooo believe that, I love making at least one friend a day. So it was a great day, the chance to be around my sweet nieces and their cute babies, then with the rest of my family has been a big gift and wonderful for my aching heart  ( missing my own kids and grandkids ).

It is late, but I wanted to say thanks to all of you who have been such wonderful friends to me and my family. I sure love and appreciate you …your friendship to me is a gift!

 

A Priceless Gift

Friendship is a priceless gift
that cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
than a mountain made of gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless,
it can neither see nor hear
And in the time of trouble
it is powerless to cheer.

It has no ears to listen
nor heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask God for a gift
Be thankful if He sends
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches
But the love of real true friends.

- Helen Steiner Rice

"The better part of one's life consists of his friendships."
