"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have
in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him,
the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous,
is his dog" -- George Graham Vest

Hi my friends,

Today a friend of the Mommy's that she hasn't seen in years, came to the hospital where the Mommy works to say hello. It was such a surprise, a very nice surprise!! It was like they had just seen each other yesterday instead of the 5 or so years since that has last been together. It made the Mommy realize how important friends truly are. I know we have done posts about friends before but the visit today reminded the Mommy of some things she has heard or read through the years and she wants to share some of them with you, but before she does, I want to say something about my blogging all (and your Mommies and Daddies), dogs, cats, hamsters and anybody or animal I have left out are the very best friends, we could have ever hoped for. The last year has been a very tough one for the Mommy, me, my brothers and our family, but knowing we have such good friends and can rely on you for comfort and kind words has made it bearable when at times it felt hopeless.

SO I SAY WITH LOVE -- "LORD BLESS MY BLOGGING (ON LINE) FRIENDS. We will adding this to our sidebar & award it to everybody.

Now for some of the things the Mommy firmly believes in about friends.

A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift.

A friend is someone we treasure for our friendship is a gift.

A friend is someone who fills our lives with beauty, joy and grace.

A friend is someone who makes the world we live in a better and happyer place.

There is a miracle called friendship, that dwells in the heart.
You do not know how it happens or when it gets its start.
But you know the special lift it always brings.
You realize that friendship is the world's most precious gift!!!

The moral to all this is "let old friends know you haven't forgotten them and tell new friends you never will."

Love & God Bless all our dear friends.....Mona & the Mommy

Mummy always says, a friend doesn't ask questions, they just help you hide the body. I worry about her and her friends.
