Baking Christmas cookies with my dear friend!

This post is dedicated to my "Best Friend" Jessica. My lovely Daughter-in-Law. She set up a special time for us to bake Christmas cookies today and tomorrow. She is busy raising three children, yet she cares enough about me to want to be with me for two day.

True friends are friends that are not embarrassed of you, true friends want to be around you. Jessica is this true friend to me. Thank you and I love you Jess and your wonderful family. "Which so happens to be my loving son and my three beautiful grandchildren. You are always there when I need you. You have been there when my Becca moved and Aaron went into the Navy. You were there to listen when I needed a friend! Thank you for always being there for me even through many tears that I have shed lately, even through some very hard times in my life.

As I sat and read God's Word this morning and went over everything God has given me, I think the best thing I have in life besides of course, my salvation, is my family and friends. Some friends have walked out of my life; I will miss those friends forever. Some are, I am sure here to stay. I think of the people I am around each day, people that bring joy to my life. I think of friends that have moved away that I am not in contact with anymore, friends that have touch a deep part of my soul, friends that come to mind often, that I miss. God puts people in our lives to love and cherish. I have so many wonderful friends that do so much for me. I also have friends that something I have said or done have put a wedge between us. I do have to say, in each situation I have been in, I have tried to make it right, by God graces He has chosen to take those people out of my life.

I thank God for all of the people He has brought into my life, the ones that have gone on and the one that are here to stay.

Living for the simple things in life: The gift of Love

I think I will do something special for a friend today.


Friends Forever

Friends are friends forever together 'till the end.

You promised me that you would always be my friend.

One day something changed I'm not sure what it was.

I lost you on that day and the reason was because

it was a late dark night and we had a stupid fight.

And for some reason, I don't know why, we couldn't make it right.

We went our separate ways.

This went on for days and days.

I made new friends and you made yours,

but that hole in my heart could not be filled for that hole was only yours.

Times got really tough,

my road of life was, oh, so rough.

I needed friends, not the kind you see from day to day,

but the kind that will always and forever stay.

Memories were all I had

and just the thought of them made me sad.

I cried every night wondering how to make it right.

I wish you could erase that day and that fight.

Would you please forgive me? I don't know where to start.

It hurts me so bad to have this hole in my heart!

I don't want our friendship to totally end.

I need you! You are my best friend!

So can we make a promise to stay together 'till the end?

A vow to each other to ALWAYS be BEST FRIENDS?

If you have wrong a brother try to make it right today.

I can't smile without You

By Barry Manalow

As we walk our path of life,
We meet people everyday.
Most are simply met by chance.
But, some are sent our way.

These become special friends
Whose bond we can't explain;
The ones who understand us
And share our joy and pain.

Their love contains no boundaries.
So, even we are apart.
Their presence enhances us
With a warmth felt in the heart.

This love becomes a passageway,
When even the miles disappear.
And so, these friends, God sends our way,
Remain forever near.

CHORUS:

You know I can't smile without you
I can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you

You came along just like a song
And brightened my day
Who would have believed that you were part of a dream
Now it all seems light years away

And now you know I can't smile without you
I can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew what I'm going through
I just can't smile

Now some people say happiness takes so very long to find
Well, I'm finding it hard leaving your love behind me

And you see I can't smile without you
I can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel glad when you're glad
I feel sad when you're sad
If you only knew what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you

Well said on a true friend. Many of those same friends have stepped in and out of my life. Yes, it does being sadness on why, sometimes not knowing why, but we know that "all things work to good to those that are called according to His purpose" Each person is in our life for a reason/season, never by accident. Never take a good friend for granted, tell them today how much they mean to you, and tell them often. A saying: "A friend is someone that knows all about you and loves you anyway!"

I agree, friends are so precious. I think as Christians, we understand that better than unbelievers. Have a blessed week, my good friend! Hugs, e-Mom :~D

Barb,

Yes, I know you have been through the same loss as I have.

Just think, we still have each other.

E-mom,

Friends are precious indeed.

I agree with you, I do believe as Christians we do understand better.

Hugs to you,

Lori
