FRIENDSHIP...something to cherish..
(click on the photo to enlarge..the tree of life)
The dictionary says...friend means, one that is attached to another by affection or esteem showing kindly interest and goodwill, inclined to favor, is cheerful, comforting.
I have a friend that is all of these and more. It's not easy to discribe her..there are not enough adjective's to tell you all about her.
I have many wonderful friends and aquantances..but this friend is at the top of the list.!!!. A very special woman....When we met we found our life stories were
very similar, she is a lot younger than me. yet we're a lot alike..at least I flatter myself to think so!
She is the most
positive and generous woman I know..Never a bad word about anybody or anything..regardless of what hardships she is going through or has gone through. Her struggles with health issues don't keep her down..people that hurt or disappoint her only makes her want
to reach out to help them.
Do you have a friend that makes you feel wonderful when you talk or get together, one that you can
share your inner thoughts with..? That's how I feel with my special friend.
When I'm going through some down times, I say..." I gotta get a Ginny fix" to lift my spirits and encourage
me to DO something about what is troubling me..Her sense of humor and a teasing way makes me laugh off the problem. and hey...She makes the best popcorn..!
I'm sorry she that she doesn't live in Wisconsin anymore..and trips out to Arizona are not as easy now...I've been able to visit when she and Jack lived in Ventura, Ca., Surprise Arizona and also in Prescott, AZ.
where they live now..
But distance doesn't matter, even though we don't get to talk that often, when we do it seems
like time stood still and I can feel the closeness and warmth.
I'm telling you about my friend and hope you
have one that makes you feel special too. If you don't, have that kind of friendship..then BE THAT TO SOMEONE ELSE.
We are blessed
with the greatest of all friends..in Christ Jesus
We were created in God's image..his love is never ending..He asks us
to love one another as he loves us..

weary and scattered, Like sheep having no shepherd. (Matthew9:36)

will be your glory.(Isaiah60:19)

and give you peace ..(Numbers 6:25-26)
