Give all the Heart

It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.
**Confucius

Words We Never Said

You never spoke a word,

But I heard words nonetheless.

Worthless

Unwanted

Useless

No Good

Unloved

Go Away

Go Away

GO AWAY!

And so I left.

And I never said a word.

But words you heard nonetheless.

Worthless

Unwanted

Useless

No Good

Unloved

Go Away

Go Away

GO AWAY!

Until, one day, you left.

If only we had said the words. . .

The real words left unsaid.

Precious

Wanted

Needed

Perfect

Loved

Stay

Stay

STAY

Good Times and Bad

“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life and said ‘I’m Here for you.’ And Proved it.”

~ Anonymous

Real Friends Stand Firm When We Go Astray

I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
~ Plutarch

A Love that Never Dies

“Friendship is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings will go on forever.”

This is Why Friendship is Necessary

“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
**Ralph Waldo Emerson

For Curfew-Complaining Teens. . .

One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.

**Margaret Mead

Keep Going

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

**Marilyn Monroe

Sorry for the length, but you kind of need the whole quote to get the power of it all.
