When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Monday Musings... Friends

A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg
even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.  
~Bernard Meltzer

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

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
~C.S. Lewis

True friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable.

~David Tyson Gentry

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing... not healing,
not curing... that is a friend who cares.
~Henri Nouwen
(thank you, Aamie, Gina, and Chris)

Have a happy Monday and thank God for your beautiful friends.


  1. It's hard to find a TRUE friend!

  2. Hi, Lanie. Thanks for sharing these great friend quotes. The 2nd one was on a wooden plate decoration that I had given to my best friend for Christmas this past year.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my post about my friend. I had seen the picture of your mom in your sidebar and realized that she, too, had passed away. I'm sure you miss her very much. I know not a day goes by that I don't think of my best friend and miss her.

  3. You know we love you too!
    Thanks for the quotes on friendships.
    It is always enjoyable to read quotes like this but to know they are meant for you...they take on a whole new meaning that warms the heart and encourages the spirit.


  4. Ha! Ha! Like the "Anonymous said" followed by my initials?
    That's why you love me!
    Laughter IS the best medicine:)
