I don’t know about you, but friends are very important to me. Maybe it’s because I have very little family left, but I have not many friends but those I have are loyal, and if I ever needed anything I wouldn’t be afraid to ask any of them.
The two bits of poetry I am quoting here came from two friends. One friend I have
known for almost 50 years. We are both strong-willed so early in our relationship
we had differences of opinion, then were estranged for a length of time, but we
managed to make up and remained friends.
The other one was a stranger to me until July 4, 2004. She was assistant manager of the Park where I had my home. I was late getting to the rec hall for dinner and the doors were closed because the air was on. Opening doors from my wheelchair has always been difficult for me. I was about to turn away when the door opened to let me in. She found a place for me to park my wheelchair and brought me a plate of food, and we became instant best friends.
A friend is the mirror that matters – her heart holds an image of you
That brings out your beautiful features and lets your best nature shine through.
A friend will be honest and truthful, sincere and unfailingly kind.
She listens with patience and caring and echoes the thoughts in your mind.
She understands every expression, remembering where you have been.
Her eyes reveal unspoken comfort, reflecting your strength deep within.
A friend is the mirror you look in whenever your heart needs a lift,
And the loving reflection she shows you can be life’s most beautiful gift.
A friend like you is one of a kind…
A friend like you is a wish come true…
A friend like you is a joy from the start…
A friend like you has beautiful heart.
Greater love has no one than this.to lay down one’s life for his friend.
Remember, God loves you and so do I. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
