great friend

a great friend makes you feel as though they were looking for you
even before they had knowledge that you exist.

a great friend is one who would wish you to get well
before they've even learned what your favorite ethnic food is.

a great friend is one who can speak of spiritual matters with you
without even knowing where you went to college.

a great friend is one who can see right through to who you are
without having seen you face to face even once.

a great friend is one who can sense your needs
without having been told what you do for recreation.

a great friend is one who knows how to make you smile
without knowing yet what your favorite comedy is.

a great friend is one who knows what you see
without having glimpsed at the color of your eyes.

a great friend is one who gives you the gift of insight
before being told when your birthday is.

a great friend is one who gives you joy
without trying—without even knowing it.

a great friend is a great thing to have.

have you a great friend?
i hope so.
i do.

Hi friend! This picture reminded me of the delicious lunch we enjoyed at that tasty place across from the train station. (Why can't I remember the name? Is it Jake's? Dan's? It's completely escaping me at the moment.) Such cool lamps--This shot turned out great, G! I've been thinking of you often. Did you get my card...? I hope so! :)
Hugs,
Heather

I am very blessed with good friends. Ones that I can walk into a comfortable conversion whether it was two hours ago or two months ago.
