Hope Boomerang

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.

I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.

It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.

It is not so much our friends' help that helps us, as the confidence of their help.

Thank you dearest friends, for being there when I need you.  I have a difficult time seeking out help. I believe that the biggest misconception is that someone has the ability to reach out when they are deeply troubled.  Often it’s this point at which we are most isolated.  We wonder who will understand our troubles.  My close friends know my incredible strength, know that when I ask for help it must be very very painful.  The smallest of gestures can make the difference between despair and hope.

Blessings to you - my family of friends - who came to my side without question or judgment. You are held close to my heart.

Your support means the world to me.  YOU mean the world to me.  I hope that I may return our beautiful friendship boomerang in YOUR hour of need.
