Friendship - A Gift That Keeps On Giving

I have a little wall hanging that says "Friends are our chosen family". I love that little hanging and think it's the "gospel truth" at least in my life! I have my wonderful family - my sweetheart Ernie, my dad, my stepmom and my two sisters with their families. But I also have dear friends that make my life complete somehow. I know I can rely on them to keep my feet on the straight-and-narrow, calling my attention to my misbehavior as well as my good points. I love them all and wouldn't trade them for anything. I have friends that I've never met in person, friends that I only met once and will never see again this side of glory, and friends that I see all the time. I just love them all! My friends, both male and female, have all been there for me when I needed them - some in times of grief, some in times of happiness, and some in times of just kickin' back and shmoozing. I love you, my friends.

For this, I want to say to all of my friends. Thank you so very much for your friendship to me. You are my heart and my soul. God knew what he was doing when he created the family, but he added the icing on the cake when he created friendship!

Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand!

Much love,


  1. So glad our friendship has bonded. We have so many things in common. . . our Christian faith, our love for crafts, travel/sightseeing, and just "kicking back."
