The Friendship Light


The friends we find along the way

stand by our side, come what may

a forever friend is hard to find

fair and kind

I’m glad you are mine

through all sorts of times

a helping hand is near

a friend so dear

I treasure you, my friend

our caring bond will never end

so through thick and thin

we’ll always win

friends forever

parting never

a loving friendship light

is never out of sight …

Friends


Treat your friends with care

Think of all you share

Remember all the smiles

even over the miles

Caring, sharing

and daring

to be laughing and fun

that’s how it’s done

A friend you choose

you don’t want to lose

so follow this easy rule

very silly, yet cool

talk and grin

your friendship wins

Friends stay in our heart

some from the start

Forever friends

and hugs to send …

Insight ~by Autumn Sunshine


You don’t even know me, perhaps you never did

I can see it all the many lies that you hid

I called you my friend

Friendship never ends?

What a joke that proved to be

I opened my eyes and I clearly see

You are shallow, so it seems

You know exactly what I mean

Lie after lie

BUT you never made me cry

I have a man who loves me true

and he told me that he understood, he knew

My friend you were, but never again

My love told me how it is, you’re a loser

you will never win…

I feel sad you felt such pain in your heart

that you tried to make me fall apart…

Go along your merry way

just try to keep your lies at bay

Another lesson learn

another page I’ve turned…

Pondering and Wondering Again… BY Gabrielle Angel


So, I am wondering and pondering again. I do that a lot actually, more often than I should. Am I the only one who worries about odd things? Things that may never happen, things that have happened, passing thoughts about people and events.
Any or all of the above that may have happened already, may never happen again. I wonder if worry is even the correct word? Or is pondering, wondering more accurate? Whether I am busy, meandering about doing things or just hanging out doing not much of anything…It always happens. An active mind, well that’s good isn’t it? Sure it is, or so I hear tell!  Anyway, I was driving and kind of worrying/pondering and all once again. A specific thought kept running through my mind. Traffic around me, a song on the CD and my mind just takes off.
I am thinking about an acquaintance who I had an unplesant short chat with  by telephone before I left my house.Why does this person persist in constantly asking favors?  Of me, of others and I sort of shudder over the selfishness of it all. Not really even a friend anymore,too exhausting to have for a friend quite honestly. I can’t allow people to do that, I would rather disconnect.
What I would like to do is play this person the Eagles song, Get Over it. I think the line applies, “The big, bad world doesn’t owe you a thing” is quite accurate for this person. I am a nice person, but not a doormat after all and I have spoken my peace before to this acquaintance.
In talking to my twin sister Autumn about this one, she is much more blunt and that’s good. She offers such sage advice that I badly need to hear. That twinnie is sure a blessing. Then my mind takes off again, and I am thinking about nice people who I call friends and also other trusted family members.
My cousin, he is so much like me and I love him dearly. He gets into these similiar situations in his life. We had talked recently about this one person who invades his well behaving in much the same way. He laughingly told me we must just care too much and come across the wrong way.
 Maybe we all have such people around us? It’s something to ponder for the day, anyone have any thoughts on this? It’s just much better to kick this sort of person out of our lives, but why do they have the nerve to keep coming back I wonder?! A mystery and kind of pitiful…Some people on this earth just are takers and some givers. Never the twain shall meet, I wish. Why am I bothered about wanting to change this person?
 You can’t change anyone but yourself, after all and I do know this. This was again one of my daily ponderings, wonderings or worries…Thanks for listening!
