This morning as I sat drinking my coffee, I contemplated on what I should write about today. Usually it is about a particular subject that is on my mind, but this morning, I was just, well, brain-dead. So I checked my Facebook instead.
The topics on my Facebook ranged from giants in the church meeting, to hoola hoops for the waist, to giving blood, and much more. Everything under the sun is what was written.
This started me thinking that is just what I do, write about everything under the sun! Hoping you don’t get bored reading my blog!
Today is my friend’s birthday. You’ll have to guess how old she is, because I am older, not much mind you, but older! Plus, she might get mad at me! (My mother said a lady never tells her age! Oh no, that was another friend’s mother.)
I was thinking back to when we first met, many moons ago, about the times we’ve shared through the years. She was one of my firstpen pals, living several states away, we were probably ten years old. It makes me feel blessed that she is still in my life.
I have many friends from my youth that I stay in contact with, or have reconnected with through Facebook. I have made many more through the years.
Now in the process of writing a book about my sister-friends, I thought of a poem I wrote several years ago. Since you are my friend, I would like to share it with you. Hope you enjoy!
A Friend Indeed
Did you ever wonder what a friend is about
Ever sit and think it out?
A friend will sit and lend an ear
To anything you want to share.
She won’t judge or think you bad
Even though you might make her sad.
A shoulder, on which you can lean,
The lines she won’t read between.
Won’t try to change who you are
But will try to help you go far.
In your life whatever you do
Hard times she will help you through.
The good times she will want to share
She loves you and you know she cares.
With you she won’t try to compete
Just help to make your life complete.
Someone to cry with, or share a laugh
Someone to depend on, on your behalf.
She’ll take your kids, treat them like her own
Or visit with you on the telephone.
Sometimes for hours, making small talk
Sharing feelings or taking a walk.
She will share your hurt and your pain
And let your tears flow like rain.
She’ll comfort you and lighten your load
Help you down those rocky roads.
So if you wonder what it’s all about
Just think of me, a friend no doubt!

I am blessed to be your friend!
