Ya Gotta Have FRIENDS

A friend is a present you give to yourself! author unknown

Friends are a vital part of our lives!
I don't know what I would have done without mine of late!
They come in all shapes, sizes, religious affiliation, and no affiliation!
I even have some really great friends who are relatives.
Like my daughters, my brother& sister and 2 great sisters in law!
I have some great friends from Nursing school.
And how about web friends- I call em friends although I have never seen,
but have a wonderful relationship with.
As I remember friends I wish the best for all of them,
and wish everyone has friends like me.
Of course my friend Jesus is always with me!

This is close to where I live. Walking distance-a good reflecting place (no pun intended!)

A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly,
assists readily, adventures boldly,
takes all patiently,defends courageously
and continues a friend unchangeably
William Penn

Love the poem, and the little yellow flower is beautiful. Is that a primrose?

Shoebee said...

The yellow flower is a Hibiscus. Isn't that the lake next to the swimming pool at your place, where dad was supposed to take Danny fishing?

I didn't realize hibiscus came in yellow. Mine are all white and purple.

And you're right, friends are a blessing.
