Friends are friends forever.

The Gift Of Friends
by Karin Schaefer
There are days when bubbling from us comes the innocent child within,who giggles at the little things and wears a silly grin.There are days when melancholy comes to visit for a while; the mind feels tired, the body weak; we have no strength to smile. There are days when joy abundant grabs a hold of you and me; wraps us up in all it's splendor, lifts us up and sets us free. There are days when sorrow wraps us in its cloak of grief and fear, 'till our hearts ache to the breaking, 'till our eyes can't shed a tear. There are days when love bestows us with its wonderment and light; with its beauty and its mystery, its power and its might. And there are days when life rewards us and seems to make amends by granting us a marvelous gift, the precious gift of Friends.

Just want you all to know how much I appreciate your friendship.
Thank-you. Tammy

Got your note Tammy - Thanks.

I treasure your friendship and all that has been and am anticipating all that is to come. When we met in 1995 I never would have guessed what a "surprise" God had for me in the form of a friendship with you. You have been a wonderful friend that I treasure and trust.

You will love blogging and connect with so many other "kindred spirits".....Blogging has provided yet more surprises for me. I think most if not all the other girls would agree that this connecting has been a very "special surprise"!

You are so special Tam. Your loyalty and faithfulness is beyond that of most.
Many Muahs to you!

In a short few months, I will probably know you quite a bit better from reading your blog. Happy writing! Thanks for this "window" into your life.

You are a remarkable woman. One of the things that I love about you the most is that you are one of the most trustworthy people I have ever met.

You also are a woman who models a lifestyle of not walking in judgment. Thanks for showing me the way.

Keep singing for Jesus!

I LOVE the writing that you included in this post!

SOOOO true. I love the friends that are able to share a good laugh, a bit of wisdom, and the odd tear.

Bless you...and welcome to the ever increasing world of Blogging!

You wonderful woman of God.
I must say I was so thankful for our small group in the fall as I got a chance to get to know you more. Now it can continue with this blogging thing.
