Daily prayer:

Please God,
put your arms around my shoulders
and your hand over my mouth.

Happy Friends week!
Many people
will walk in and out of your life.

But only true friends
will leave footprints
in your heart.

To handle yourself,
use your
head;

To handle others,
use your
heart.
Anger is only one letter short of
danger

If someone betrays you once,
it is their fault;

If they betray you twice,
it is your fault.

Great minds discuss
ideas;

Average minds discuss
events;

Small minds discuss
people.
s/He, who loses money,
loses much;

s/He, who loses a friend,
loses much more;

s/He, who loses faith,
loses all.


When it hurts to look back,
and you're scared to look ahead,
you can look beside you
and your best friend will be there.


Beautiful young people
are accidents of nature.


Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough
to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me. . .

You brought another friend. . .
And then there were 3. . .

We started our group. . .
There is no beginning or end. . .
Yesterday is history
It contains the memories we share. . .

Tomorrow is mystery
It contains things
for us to look forward to. . .

Today is a gift
Where we can share each other. . .

It's National Friendship Week.
(Isn’t EVERY Week?)

You always had the freedom to be your own person;
and I groove on being your friend.
We are what we are
and that’s enough.
That’s more than enough.

Let us remember too, those who we thought
were friends, but who faded away,
like a sigh on a breeze…
But. . . they live on in our memories,
Missed, loved, and fondly remembered

and We . . .

. . . we are
in each others’ lives…
in our
present…
not past or future…
just now.
Our circle of friends. . .
With no beginning or end. . .
With no beginning or end. . .
it always comes back to you,
Because. . .
We are a circle of friends.
In friendship, what we call the beginning
is often the end.
And to make an end
is to make a beginning.

It's always Friendship Week!

It's funny how you find
you enjoy your life
when you're
happy to be alive

There are BIG ships
and there are small ships
but the best ships
are friendships

Those friendships that ceased were never real from the beginning . . .
When a friend does something for us,
it is difficult to humble ourselves by thanking them.
Believe it or not, as strong as your need is
to believe yourself independent,
your friend may have an even stronger need
to hear the words "thank you".
Your friend will appreciate
that s/he is also a contributor
to the friendship.

Thank you for being my friend.
Rock on . . .
