Celebrating International Friendship Day

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

    “ Friends ”
    ~ side by side ~

    There’ll be a day
    Ye chance to find,
    That ye can stay
    And may so bind,
    As best of friends
    Thus of one mind,
    Then side by side
    Find capture way,
    Destined abide
    Wants give play,
    Ne’er to fail guide
    Tho be road grey,
    Hence side by side
    Will not fear stray,
    As friends in time
    We’ll stay the tide
    Until life’s end defines!

    I’m so glad to celebrate this day with you. Your quote from Emerson is very powerful and is the poem later in the dialogue. There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. You are that kind of friend–thank you.

      Every day is a celebration of Friendship. We have travelled to Alberta for the weekend to visit my two brothers. Family and friends define and nuance our lives in ways that we cannot imagine. I am so very glad that we connected over the “blogger miles.” Hugs and love are coming your way.
