“Life gives us brief moments with another, but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime, so live that your memories will be part of your happiness.” (Author Unknown) on the path least traveled…

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂 Me 1 copy

( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I  do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” ,  no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life  🙂 ).. 🙂

I have been ask a number of times what I thought about friends and friendship… I have shared this a few times in the past but perhaps with today’s challenges and conflicts, it would be a good time to share again…  🙂

 

 

 Perhaps Adam Clarke said it best… 🙂
  
 "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
                                       (Adam Clarke)
  
   

Hello Diary,

Yes, in today’s world it may seem difficult to find a friend, especially if one should find oneself in a strange place.. but know that true and dear friends always  live in one’s heart and  are there wherever one ventures… home is where the heart (filled with memories) is and one can always return home whenever one wishes.. 🙂

 

 

“While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy” (Author Unknown)… 🙂

“A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.” (Leo Buscaglia)… 🙂

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.” (Helen Keller).. 🙂

“Don’t walk in front of me I may not follow, don’t walk behind me I may not lead, walk beside me just be my friend” (Albert Camus)… 🙂

“A friend may be waiting behind a stranger’s face.” (Maya Angelou)… 🙂

 

 Not just another  day, dear friend
 For in spite of time, distance or whatever,
 If only in spirit and thought
 We’ll be sharing today together.
  
 A day filled with hope and dreams
 With a mind that is at peace,
 Surrounded by love and happiness
 That sooths the spirit, to say the least.
  
 The warm sun reminds me of you, my friend
 Whose beauty from within you do share,
 Sharing sunshine, understanding and laughter
 Sowing the seeds of  love and happiness in the air.
  
 A special day and one to treasure
 And not because of the calendar age, 
 Because the book  of memories and thoughts
 Will be adding another page!
  
 So, have a wonderful day, dear friend
 Wishing you all the best, nothing less,
 May today, every day, AND your heart
 Be filled…...with love and happiness.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
  
   

And with sharing a few thoughts about friends and friendship, I shall close for now…there is a world and a universe out there filled with adventures waiting for me.. But I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again, my friend… 🙂

      • Thank you for stopping by!!.. I would like to think that nurture works along side nature as a team… “There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.” ( Douglas H. Everett)… 🙂

        Until we meet again..
        May the dreams you hold dearest
        Be those which come true
        May you always walk in the sunshine
        May you never want for more
        May Irish angels rest their wings
        Right beside your front door.

  1. Thank you for this abundance of wisdom! The first poster about no regrets helped me realize that the mistakes I made in my first marriage were mostly me being true to myself. and eventually led to a more compatible partner. I love the part about giving each other room to change, room to grow, and room to be ourselves. Sending sweet blessings to you, Larry!
