To Understand…

Standard

After all of the hugs and greetings, the coffees and the dinners, the visits and the trips…friends come to understand each other.  It takes time, but I think it may be one of the greatest gifts we can give and receive.

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.”
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

The Gathering of Friends

  1. Adding to Seneca! I received an email today with a photo of a person and a dog sitting on a park bench looking into each others eyes, so cute! The caption: “If I could give you one thing in life, I wolud give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes. Only then would you realize how special you are to me.” (Unknown) True friendship, I think.

  2. My favourite pet bird. If any one asked what would you like to have. My reply – A MACAW which I will not cage. Yes I like the caption GATHERING OF FRIENDS

    • Your comments remind me of a quote by Jacques Deval: “God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages…” Thanks for stopping by for a visit – very much appreciated.
