I really appreciate your friendship…

Todays blog is full of quotes for the people who have touched my life in one way or another, who have made me smile when I felt like crying, and who have helped me see the glass half full on the days that I forget to. And to remind you I really appreciate your friendship.

We rarely get what we want,
We rarely want what we get,
We rarely have what we like,
We rarely like what we have.
And still we live & love.
That’s life…

The best kind of friend,
Is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with,
Never say a word,
And then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

It’s true that we don’t know
What we’ve got until it’s gone,
But it’s also true that we don’t know
What we’ve been missing until it arrives..

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you back!
Don’t expect love in return;
Just wait for it to grow in their heart,
But if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
An hour to like someone,
And a day to love someone,
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.
Don’t go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile to
Make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile!

Always put yourself in others’ shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
It probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest of people
Don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happiness lies for
Those who cry,
Those who hurt,
Those who have searched,
And those who have tried,
For only they can appreciate the importance of people
Who have touched their lives.

When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You’re the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying.

May you have
Enough happiness to make you sweet,
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
And enough hope to make you happy.

Note: Some of the quotes were written by an unknown author, although I have modified some to better suit my own sentiments.

  3. So very true. A lovely collection of thoughts here, Kate. I particularly liked the fab silent conversation on the swing. We do that a lot in the summer… Yes, even in the UK 🙂

The only thing missing in this global conversation is YOUR voice... Thank you.
