The Gift Of Friendship



                                                      Friendship is a priceless gift
                                                      that can not be bought or sold
                                                      but its value is far greater than
                                                      a mountain of pure gold

                                                      For gold is cold and lifeless
                                                      it can neither see nor hear
                                                      and in the time of trouble
                                                      it is powerless to cheer

                                                      It has no ears to listen
                                                      no heart to understand
                                                      it can not bring you comfort
                                                      or reach out a helping hand

                                                      So when you ask God for a gift
                                                      be thankful if he sends
                                                      not diamonds, pearls or riches
                                                      but the love of real true friends

                                                      Helen Steiner Rice

This is for all of you and each one is a real, true friend.. May God Bless, Susie

  5. Hi Susie! I'm so sorry to hear that you have had a bad cold. It sure has been going around here too, every family I know has someone who is sick. Fortunately we have managed to avoid it so far. I am hoping we can stay well until after our friends come to visit. They will arrive on the 31st. After that it will be okay! :) It was a beautiful day, warm but very windy. Now that my mother-in-law has moved into her apartment I am relocating my sewing room upstairs. It is really cozy and has two alcove windows that look out over our pond. I'll post some pictures once I get it all set up. I hope you feel better real soon. I love the poem too, loyal friends are more precious than any treasure! Love, Delisa :)
