Friends - Our Angels

Friends are our Angels in Life
They help us through anything
         ---Nanci Johnson

I came across this thought filed away on my computer and just had to repost it.  Ms. Johnson is so right. Good friends are angels to stand by us no matter what. They support us when we feel inadequate. They listen when we need to talk. They offer love when we feel that we are unloved. They encourage us to be the best we can be.

I have a couple of good friends who have been by my side through thick and thin. One of them is also my sister and I feel so blessed to have had her in my life. She is always so supportive of everything I want to do and doesn’t hesitate to encourage me or even discourage me if she feels I need to be sure I know what I’m getting myself into.

I have several other friends who are not related, but to me they are an intregal part of my life and I don't know what I'd ever do without them. They have listened and understood me, stood by me, and given of their time and energy to make sure I had what I needed to go on every day even when I’ve been blue. We’ve shared so much over the past years and every day I thank my Lord for them.

I try to include good friends in each of my stories. My life has been enriched by good friends, and I think my stories are better when I have my hero and heroine enjoy good friends too.

I urge you to remember your good friends.  Enjoy every aspect of spending time with your friends.  Remember -- you have to be a good friend back!

Don't You Just Love It!

Had to share the following.  A friend send this to me, and it made me chuckle.  Hope it makes you smile, too.
Wish I could take credit for writing the story, but I didn't.  Thank you to whoever wrote it.
One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside
Cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.

Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.
She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.

Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat.
He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment.  For all I know you could start at any moment.  I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.

'That's true, but you have all the equipment.. For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

Never argue with a woman who reads.
It's likely she can also think.
Have a great day!
