For Friendship Day..

“Portrait of a Friend”

I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.

I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.

I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.

Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you,
and help you when you ask.

I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.

I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.

I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.

I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
I can only love you and be your friend
(Author Adam Clarke)

“Just because you feel someone does not love you as much as they should, does not mean they don’t give you all the love they have”..

Hello Diary,

Were going to wait till tomorrow to post but with it being Friendship Day, thought I would pop in and share some thoughts today… it is getting near the beginning of the week again, time moves on when one is busy chasing dreams and rainbows… 🙂 … the morning started out with one of those old horror movie type fogs….

But it soon cleared off for a bit…. spent most of the weekend contemplating the word “love” and all the word contains…. Love is that special feeling that comes from the heart, knows no time, distance or bounds and is felt by all creatures in their own way…

“Just because you feel someone does not love you as much as they should, does not mean they don’t give you all the love they have”..

Saw this pair of doves cuddling (near center if picture)…

Ewwwwwwwwwww, get a room… 🙂 they paid me no heed, had more important matters on mind… 🙂 I quickly took the picture and quietly left them to their own dreams… another product of love were these two young birds known as Grackles (second bird is in the shade)…

Grackles are normally looked down on but they have feelings also… the momma bird were very close and ready to sound the alarm in case of danger..

“ The love a mother has for her children is legendary, it is said a child is the mother’s heart outside her body.”

In history’s past I came across some baby rabbits (two near the bottom of the photo) snuggled in the grass…

Actually, there were three and they were about the size of a tennis ball… they were unattended, out in the open and near a street, so fearing their safety I put the three of them in the brushpile (used by the backyard creatures for protection against predators and weather)…

As time passed, they grew up and able to fend for themselves… here is one of them (on the left) with another adult (don’t know if it is the parent)…

All three of them have moved on, living life and chasing their dreams, looking for love also… 🙂 so there are a few examples of love on the path least traveled… love is known by the heart and usually by invitation without words…

A Invitation..

I received a invitation one day
Oh, not your regular kind,
The words not spoken or written
But were in the heart and mind.

To share a love and happiness
A love, that is precious and true,
A happiness that is eternal
That only lovers and dreamers knew.

The invite did not come the regular way
No cards, no letters, no phone.. you see,
It just appeared one day
In the depths, the spirit and heart of me.

The invite came from an unknown
A unknown too great for me to behold,
But it was to be a precious beginning,
Of a story, one day to be told.

“The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.”. Jiddu Krishnamurti

Well, I had better close, not only have dreams and rainbows to follow, but some mundane tasks also… work for us dreamers are never done, but it is all and adventure.. 🙂 but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

When will you feel love you ask, Diary??… Well, only the heart and time know… 🙂
