“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when
he discovers that someone else believes in him 
and is willing to trust him.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


“When you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful if he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls or riches,
but the love of real true friends.”

~Helen Steiner Rice

    Helen’s poetry is so beautiful. If you have a mo Gib, see if you can find this friendship poem by Helen called, A FRIEND IS A GIFT FROM GOD. It starts ….”Among the great and glorious gifts…”
    She describes true friendship so eloquently.
