As I began this post I cannot get past the tears. Over the past couple of years I have lost some friends. They were lost to me not because we had a tift....or difference of opinion. My sweet friends are gone from this earth.....so momentarily we are separated. When I think of the word friend. I think, "sweet!" I think of mine. I am so blessed with friends. I have some I have known since I was 5 and since I just turned 59 it is safe to say I have known them a long while. I have friends from work that I love and would do anything for and they would for me. I have friends I act crazy with, go thrift shopping with, travel with, gave birth to, married to, and am related to. All of my friends are there for a reason. In the final days of my father's life and when I was losing my mother to Alzheimers I had special friends at Waverly UMC. They held me up. They loved me when I did not feel love and just wanted my parents. I have friends at Rock Mills who write poems for me, surprise me, include me.....and I love them. When my mom died and I was sinking fast they were there to lift me up. I have friends I sing with....in the car or on a stage. I love having friends and being one. Some people go through their whole lives and never have one single friends. I am blessed with a multitude of them. My momma used to sing about her best friend all the time and everytime I hear this song I smile. "What a friend we have in Jesus. All our sins and griefs to bear. What a priviledge to carry. Everything to God in prayer." She believed the words of this song.....and so do I. Yes, I am blessed with friends....are you?
