There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Some thoughts on friendship and blogging.


This year I have met so many new friends through blogging.

They share wonderful stories about their travels, art, sewing creations, and their homes to name a few reasons why I love visiting my blogging friends.

I want to thank all of you that have visited my blog and left such kind comments this year.

I am acutely aware that this is not a happy time for many.
I know that not everyone is wrapping gifts for large families or have seemingly endless bank accounts, warm homes and  expensive gadgets. Please remember you are blessed with friendship.


Some of my favorite friendship quotes:


In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. ~Albert Schweitzer


But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end.
~William Shakespeare


Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer. ~Author Unknown

 

The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had. ~Author Unknown

 

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels. ~Author Unknown

 

Wishing you a blessed day dear friend!
