You've Got a Friend

Girlfriends, what a GIFT!
"But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end"
~ William Shakespeare ~

Songs of friendship are timeless

"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other"
~ Audrey Hepburn ~

"A good friend is cheaper than therapy"

... And so much can be said about the friendship of our dear pets ...

"The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend"
~ Aristotle ~
So thankful for the friendships that grace my life!
~ and that includes wonderful blogging friends ~

(P.S. I only kept the music up for a few days, the song playing was
James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend"

Grace, kindness and sincere love is found in this place, and I come to drink in all the sweetness and humor ( THAT DAZZLE IS A CRACK-UP) and to say MERCI MON AMIE for coming to visit. Let's fly over the rooftops; heaven knows they are becoming stronger in order for us to really make things happen.....bisous, Anita

Whenever I hear that song, I get a little weepy. And whenever I think of you, I heave a happy, longing sigh. How I miss you, and how I love you, my dear FRIEND. _ Michelle
