Beautiful Friends

Friendship is a sheltering tree.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

These flowers were given to me by a friend recently
when I was really down and struggling.

There are times in our lives when there isn't much we can do
to ease pains or solve problems for others....
but the friends that are just there for a shoulder to cry on
and a ear to hear are some of life's greatest blessings.

Thank you to my dear friends that have done so much to help
me through this difficult journey.
Thank you for your prayers...hugs....

and thank you Tina for these beautiful flowers.
{{Love you}}

Your words are so true and inspiring. Friends who stand by us through struggles and when we are down are TRUE friends. Others are just acquaintances. My thoughts are with you.

A true friend is someone who will come to help at 2:30 in the morning, no matter what. Our pastor talked about that today - "What a friend we have in Jesus ... ".

I hope Shauna has a healing week and may you both, and your families, be comforted by God through the close friends He provides.
