While we were gone. We did miss all our family, friends, and neighbors at home, and it was nice to come home where we belong. Isn’t it wonderful to have treasured friends around you? At the beginning of 2011 I am particularly grateful for friends. My friend, Arlene Conley gave me this beautiful quote about friendship from George Eliot.
“Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful, friendly hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of comfort blow the rest away.”
Life is beautiful because of the people around me and God’s wonderful plan! –Love to all, Melanie
