My dearest friends, I’m thinking of you today
so thought I’d send a little note to say
thank you for "being there" through all the years,
for giving me laughter and drying my tears,
for support and comfort, all your prayers too,
I am surely blessed, having friends so true.
We’ve shared good times, bad times and in between
and through it all, you’ve always been
an inspiration, a pure delight,
a model of courage, a guiding light.
We’ve shared hopes and dreams, our ultimate goals,
looked into our hearts and unveiled our souls.
The beauty I find in your souls is rare,
the beauty is; that you care, you share.
Giving of yourselves, a precious gift indeed,
giving of yourselves to those in need.
I ask God to bless you in all you do
and I thank God for friends like you.
For Dottie, Mary and Shirley
Your loving friend, Lora
