I sniffle and sneeze –
I cover cough and hide my wheeze;
No one needs these bugs.
My husband had it.
He generously shared it.
Thanks a lot, dear Bob!
Told my FaceBook friends-
They offered lots of advice:
Gargle. Honey. Rest.
I have tried them all.
The drippy nose continues.
Please pass the Kleenex!
Friends offer to help.
Invitations are declined.
Don’t want to spread this.
Snuggle up in bed
With the friend who doesn’t care
If you sneeze on him.
My TazE loves me
Whether I am sick or not.
Her kisses are free.
Sometimes I wonder
Where my dog gets all of them.
Wonder who’s kissing her now…
Stay healthy, my friends.
Let your best friend comfort you.
With the flooding in the Bahamas
and the hurricane Dorian
threatening the east coast of the USA,
our sense of responsibility for one another
Our friends – people, animals, all – need us.
What can we do to help?
Lock arms with your neighbor.
Decide together on some course of action.
Reach out across color and ideologies and countries and oceans.
Reach out to others with a pure heart and a love for all God’s creations.
Don’t be timid.
Take a clue from our animal kingdom.
Reach out in love to those near you…
… and those far away.
Find the need…
a universal need…
that you can do something about…
And just do it!
How far can your arm reach today?
Stretch out and test it!!
Do you have an idea about something you can do?
See ya tomorrow.
It’s easy to say, “Make Friends.”
But how do you do that?
It’s not as easy as it sounds.
Not like putting on a hat.
To have a friend, you must
Be a friend, they say.
I say that’s important…
But there’s another important way.
To have a friend, you must
Reach out and share your heart.
You can’t be afraid of rejection –
You just have to be the start.
Be the start by helping others.
Be the start by praying.
Be the start by being compassionate.
Be a friend who’s there for playing.
Play the games they like to play.
Invite them over for tea and toast.
Go out riding on your ATV, or
Ask them what they like the most.
Don’t limit talk to texting words.
Don’t just “friend” on a Facebook page.
Call ’em up. Send a card. Drop by.
Go out for lunch or go dance on a stage!
Friendship is like Love, I think.
It’s a verb, an act of doing.
Lost a friend you used to love?
Reach out and start renewing.
Renew your commitment to be the one
Who is steady, honest, and true.
That friendship can be kindled afresh.
But being a friend is UP TO YOU!
