Old friends and new…

“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”   Unknown

I love this quote and find it so true in my own life. 

Aside from a place where I can share my goofy observations and serious contemplations, I am excited to share about my friends on this blog.  God has used each of my friends to impact my life in ways that no one else could.  Some of my friends have spoken much needed truth to me.  Some have been so patient with me when it would have been easier to wring my neck.  Some have faithfully cheered me up in very melancholy times.  Some of my friends have given to me and served our family in amazingly generous ways.  But every friend I’ve been blessed with has, in their own way, “known the song in my heart and sung it back to me when I’ve forgotten the words.” 

I have never wanted my friends to be exclusively mine. I love them so much I want others to know and love them too. So over the next several weeks I’m going to introduce some of my friends to you, and share a little about how they’ve all enriched my life.

You can read about my friends in the My Joys section of this site.  And if any of you are so inclined, I’d love to hear about one special thing a friend has done for you.

    I MADE IT HERE!!!!!!! Just thought I’d give it a shot on Safari and it came up…YEEHAW!
    I love the web page, caught the chair and the cardinal….but, blog always sounds like the sound I make every 10 years or so when I puke…a strange word it is…
    This is FUN!!!!

    Well finally! I’m so glad you didn’t have to get a new computer just to visit the site. Yes, blog is one of those strange words. Web-log is better perhaps? See you soon, Gin.
