TO MY FRIEND

I would like to say, Thanks for being my friend.

A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.  Leo Buscaglia

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one’s deepest as well as one’s most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely.  Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859

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

A friend accepts us as we are yet helps us to be what we should. ~Author Unknown

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.  ~Douglas Pagels

You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car,but because they sing a song only you can hear.  ~Author Unknown

The best rule of friendship is to keep your heart a little softer than your head.  ~Author Unknown

A friend can tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself.  ~Frances Ward Weller

True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable. ~Dave Tyson Gentry

There are big ships and small ships.  But the best ship of all is friendship.  ~Author Unknown

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.  ~Robert Brault

A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.  ~William Penn

Friends are like walls.  Sometimes you lean on them, and sometimes it’s good just knowing they are there.  ~Author Unknown

SMILE

When you smile, I smile.

Peace begins with a smile.  ~Mother Teresa

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love,
a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.  ~Mother Teresa

Smile!  It increases your face value.  ~Robert Harling, 

A smile is a powerful weapon; you can even break ice with it.  ~Author Unknown

Most smiles are started by another smile.  ~Author Unknown

A smile is something you can’t give away; it always comes back to you.
~Author Unknown

A smile costs nothing but gives much.
It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and
none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. 

Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
or stolen, for it is something that is of no value
to anyone until it is given away. 

Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
so much as he who has no more to give.  ~Author Unknown
