Ode to a friend...

Think about this for a minute...

If I happened to show up on your door step crying,Would you Care?

If I called you and asked you to pick me up because something happened,Would you come?

If I had one day left, to live my life;Would you be part of That last day?

If I needed a shoulder to cry on,Would you give me Yours?

Your aspiration is your motivation, your motivation is your belief,Your belief is your peace, your peace is your target,Your target is heaven, and life is like hell without FRIENDS.
Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth...AMEN..!!
I was sent this in an email the other day: It got me to thinking ... Am I a good friend? I don't actually have that many friends, So I'd like to think if and when a friend needed me, Would I be there for them? I got a chance to find out.. One of my bestests friends called me the other day.. She and I don't get to see each other very often... Yet, we share mostly everything.. Usually over a Gaiii ~ normous glass of wine and a pretty lengthy phone call...
We were starting our second glass that evening, when she shared with me something that shook me to the core...she found a lump.....
As I heard the words leave her mouth, I felt my heart stop for a second... My first instinct was to get on a plane and go put my arms around her. . . I let her talk as I gathered my thoughts ...only thing out of my mouth when I could speak was "WELL THIS JUST SUCKS!!" her laugh let me know she and I were on the same wave length.
:Understand this is my friend and all friends handle
in their own way . . . . THIS IS OURS:
She and I began to plot her final voyage ... "Where should we go?"I say
"It has to have wine" She says!... (DUH)
"United States or International" I say
"Italy" She says!
"I'm scared my hair is going to fall out" She says
"Then we will both buy wigs" I say
"I don't remember my real hair color" She says!..
I laugh. . . . . . .
Trust me when I say, I am not making light of death ... We are all going to die of something someday... This is my friend & This is how we are going to deal with it..
My friend went to the Doctor, Everything is fine!! I hope my friend knows I will always be there for her when she needs me!
