A Good Friend

May you always be blessed with amiable companions.

Dana Bate
Hello Linda
I have been yearning for a visit from someone. Since I don't have any friends in Bristol looking for some social contact has been like trying to fish in a mud puddle. There are the artists I see once a month, the immediate neighbors who don't talk to me. the shop keepers who are nice, but that's it.

There's Linda who comes over know and then, but she lives a good distance away, longer than a marathon. But because of her sense of humor it is a lively time when we get together.

But yesterday Margie came, with a picnic lunch: tuna, cheese, grapefruit, strawberries and cookies. What a pleasure it was, a few hours of good eats and good companionship.

Margie and I have know each other for many years, we used to work together. But we didn't talk about old times. We talked about what is happening today in her life and my life. She showed me her own art work and looked at mine. We talked about things. The best kind of contact.

Now, when the warmth and joy of her visit wears off I will me complaining once again that no one comes to visit me

Friends, good friends, good people who are friends, are the ennobling rights of life. They keep us from being aliens, strangers in a chaotic world of strangers. They identify us as worthy. They shed value on us. They help us to enjoy a plateful of self confidence. They write us into their own lives. They are gifts.

A good friend is one who approves of you even though they know you well. A good friendship should be kept in a locket in one's heart.

How nice that your friend came by and you were able to share time with each other, plus all the yummy goodies she brought. I can't imagine life without dear friends, they are indeed a blessing to have and I count myself blessed to share my life with them. A good friend is indeed family in my heart.
