The Blessing of Good Friends

We had a wonderful Christmas celebrating with our son Nick and very good friends. We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends who we feel are like our family. Since we live far away from our families you tend to rely more on your friends and we know how blessed we are to have such wonderful caring friends around us.

Friends are relatives you make for yourself. ~Eustache Deschamps

If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me. ~Author Unknown

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine. ~Thomas Jefferson

I hope each and everyone of you has a wonderful friend on who you can rely on and loves you for who you are. What a good time to tell them how you feel.
Have a great day!


  1. I knew you are a very good person when you wrote about Johnnie and the horses, but I knew I was right as I have read about your close friendships. So many people so close to you. I'm glad you had a great day and that you had your son with you.
