I Wish For You To Always Have a True Friend Standing Beside You...

If you have received a quilt square from me, then you know that this is my wish that I send out with with each one.
I just came home from a weekend with my dearest girlfriend Julie. I love her deeply. She has been my friend, advisor, confidant and walked this life with me for the last 13 years. There are no favors between us, we freely give what the other needs, there is no need to ask or to pay back. She has held my children when they were still brand new and I have held hers. I have wiped her tears and she has wiped mine. My family is hers and her family is mine. I was on the phone with her when she was in the hospital in North Carolina, I heard the overhead voices call out in the background and I knew her mother was gone. I flew there and stood beside her when they lowered her into the ground. Divorce, difficulties with pregnancy, joy, true love...we have been together through it all. We tell each other we love each other freely. I am her daughter's Godmother and she will be Sophia's Godmother.
I hope that each of you has a true friend...

I am very grateful for my best friend. She is always the sound of reason whenever I have a meltdown. I don't know what I would do without her.

I think a friend such as you are speaking of is a true gift from God and sadly a rare thing. Certainly seomething to be treasured.

Gold holds no value next to one who is a true best friend. A blessing few come to know and other fail to appreciate. I'm happy you do...

I,too, have such a friend and it is my daughter, Sara. Now that she is an adult with children of her own, she is the best. My mom runs a close second. I am glad you have a special someone. It is a blessing and a treasure.
