Archive for the ‘Remembering Departed Friends this Thanksgiving weekend’ Category

The Thanksgiving holiday weekend is a good time to review what true friendships are really about.  It is also a time to remember those who have passed on in our lives that were “True Friends” in every sense of the phrase.

Texas Poetry

Thru Seventy years of life on this world
there has been a few lessons of life
that were difficult to learn.
Knowing the difference
between true friendships and Fair Weather Friends
was one of the hardest lessons of all.
In  discovering that vast difference in friendships
I believe we live in a form of self-denial
in realizing the differences.
I am now painfully aware
that the best friends I ever had
are now long dead.
Thank you Lord
for being to me
the friend that no other is.
As my Father once related to me
“One could live a lifetime and be able to count
the true friends they would have had
on one hand.”
I have been blessed in my lifetime
to have had two of those real friends
with now my Lord
as my constant Third.
