Blog Your Blessing : Friendship


Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of
feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but to pour them all out, just as they are,
chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping,
and then, with a breath of kindness,
blow the rest away.

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

Oh, the comfort indeed. Such friends are few and far between. I'm just thinking how ironic this is coming from a woman who changed her name to a man's that she might get away with expressing her genius as an author! She must have felt these words very deeply.

Happy New Year, Cybercelt!

"Friendship is the beautiful flower God has created in the garden of life. The beauty of the flower friendship is that you can enjoy it at the same time you can become one." Its not mine, but who can deny?
