There will be many friendships

along life's road.

Some will last

Others will be for a short while...

Some of the most important ones

will be with those whom you spend

most of your days.

These are the ones you must remember

to nurture.

Life hurries us along and we forget

or take for granted those who mean

the most to us.

Stop and take the time to nurture

those relationships nearest

and dearest to your heart.

We try to remind our children of this simple thing~

Simple in words but more difficult to put into action.

We love to see them



making each other laugh~

Some already know~

This past December my husband

lost his brother.

They were very close~

He was an important part of all of our lives.

We must appreciate and cherish every

moment we have together.

wonderful pictures capturing true friendship. losing a brother is tough, losing a brother-friend is even harder. i pray peace for his heart.

Beautiful. I believe that friends come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime and I have felt this painfully too well. My best to you and your hubby.
