True Friends

My friend, Carol, phoned this evening. She is so excited about the fact that, in less than forty-eight hours, she’ll be meeting me at the airport when I arrive to spend a few days with her. We've been friends all our lives and have been planning this reunion for years! I’m looking forward to spending time with her, but my excitement is overshadowed somewhat by my fear of flying. Though many friends and family have tried to make me feel better by insisting that things will be fine, I can’t seem to overcome the shakiness I feel. I hope, once I’m in the air, I’ll relax and enjoy the trip.

 We plan to walk on the beach every day and who knows what else Carol has planned?  She assures me I’ll have plenty of material for a second book when I come home. She never lies to me so I’m sure I will. Can’t wait to get started!
A true friend is one who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

A friend is one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.

A friend accepts us as we are, yet helps us to be what we should.

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.

A friend is the one who knows all about you and still likes you.

"A single rose can be my garden—a single friend, my world!"

"I will always be able to get through the darkness, as long as a friend like you is waiting in the light."  ~Peggy Toney Horton

Hi Peggy, I don't know how you come up with such interesting things to write about. I am also afraid of flying. I have flown several times and I am always so anxious. The feeling when your up in the air and realize there is nothing under you to hold up the plane. But then I look out the window and see the beautiful clouds and think I am so close to God. So then I know He is up here taking care of me. Can't wait to read of your experiences.
Also thank you for your prayers for my granddaughter. Maybe I can tell you about her some other time. Enjoy your vacation.

Thanks so much for your comments, Donna. I know I shouldn't be worried about the flight. God is always with me!

I'm so glad Ashley is doing fine. Thanks for letting us know. I would love to hear all about her sometime.
Have a wonderful day!
