Friendship…..a special honor

Make no mistake a friend is NOT an acquaintance and an acquaintance is NOT a friend.  When you cross the boundary from Acquaintance to friend ….well…that’s an honor….that’s special.  A really  good friend is not so easy to find so when you have one …take care and respect that friendship.  It takes time to develop a relationship and nurture it and let it have it’s ups and downs.  It is pretty incredible that a good friend will be THERE for you (wherever THERE is) and listen to you and pick you up when necessary and be concerned and be a source of help.  In my experience I feel fortunate that I have some real good friends and I am a real good friend.  I appreciate when someone  gives me their friendship.  To me it is like gold. They  became my family.  I can laugh my tush off with them and cry my eyes out with them.  A wonderful experience in give an take.  I  Never stop learning how to be a good friend ….I am not alone.  I have people who care about me. I plan on being a friend to the End….I also plan that the send doesn’t come for a very, very, very LONG time.  To my incredible,understanding ,loving

friends…THANK YOU.




Good God it’s great to laugh!  Oh yes, laughter can uplift you..can cure you…can help you cope.  People love to be around someone with HUMOR.  I don’t think you can teach someone to have humor, it is something you are born with.  This fact brings me to the thought that I am soooo lucky to have had the stork deliver me to  a family with humor, they were organically funny.  They couldn’t help it.  My parents, Devera and Al were both not just funny but OH so funny.  Such wonderful memories of my parents and my older sister Joan, I called Joannie, sitting around the dinner table and having a joyous entertaining meal.  We were a fast bunch especially with eating.  If you were a guest in the house I would inform you that you should take everything you want to eat and quickly put it on your plate because there no second servings because you will discover that when you want seconds everything will be gone.

I think that the humor kept my parents together and helped us through family trials and tribulations.  If you have a sense of humor, enjoy it and the most important thing is to SHARE it!
