The Gift Of Friendship

My dear, dear friends, thank you for the beautiful and precious anniversary wishes.
My heart was about to burst with joy and gratitude from all of the kind words
that each one of you shared.
Each one of you is a sweet gift and I am thankful for YOU. 

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold,


But it's value is far greater
Than a mountain made of 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 cannot 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 ~

Stephanie, I just wrote a post about friendship on my blog. I can't believe we both decide to talk about friendship on our blogs on the same day! Great minds think alike, right? :o)

Your friendship and those that I've found through your swaps have come to mean so much to me. Thank you for being a dear, Christian friend to me.
