807. Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief. ~Marcus Tullius Cicero

One day, love and friendship met.
Love asked, “Why do you exist
when I already exist?”
Friendship smiled and said,
“To put a smile where you leave tears.”

There are those who pass like ships in the night
Who meet for a moment then sail out of sight
With never a backward glance of regret
Folks we know briefly then quickly forget
Then there are friends who sail together
Through quiet waters and stormy weather
Helping each other through joy and through strife
And they are the kind who give meaning to life
~Faith Offerman

  1. Oh wow Natalie I have this life long friend who’s son is in the hospital and she said whenever I need a prayer warrior I call on you Michelle and I thought to myself well whenever my girl was/is sick my friends rallied around me! One called at 2 am and said I want to pay for Alex! I love that about friends! There no matter what! May O share this with her Natalie? She’s in the hospital now sitting with her boy? 💜
