Best Friends



Artist: Francois Boucher (1703-1770)
Title: Young Woman with a Bouquet of Roses

My best friend has been diagonosed with breast cancer and underwent surgery this week. She has been in my thoughts a lot, worries about her health and thoughts about how much our friendship means. She has been there for me so many times that I can only hope I can do the same for her in this difficult time.

I wish you a speedy recovery my dear!

Friendship is a priceless gift
that cannot be bought or sold
but it's value is far greater
than a mountain made of gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless
it can neither see and nor hear
and in time of trouble
it is powerless to cheer ~~

It has no ears to listen
nor heart to understand.
It can not bring you comfort
or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask
God for a gift
be thankful if he sends
not diamonds, pearls or riches
but the love of a real true friend.
