Friendship, love and other mushy things

Reposted from my myspace blog:

My middle child sent me some scrapbooking items as part of my Christmas gift. Included among the scrapbooking goodies was a set of stickers on friendship. The very first citation stopped me and made me think. "A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back when you have forgotten the words."

Maybe that is why music is so important to me. It's why some of the artists can seem like friends, even when you know in your heart you aren't their best friend or anything. Some I've met, and I've been even more impressed. Whether they know it or not, they sing often sing my heart back to me when I am forgetful.

I've had a few friends like that from time to time. At least one I can think of I really miss and I've totally lost track of her. I know we have probably gone different directions, but I spent many hours talking to her on the phone. She would read me things she'd written. When I wrote letters to the editor, I usually ran them by her first. We were kindred spirits. I do think of her often.

Anyway, I love people. Maybe they don't always deserve it. I'm sure I don't. But I hope that at some point again I can be the person that can sing back forgotten words to others.

I also hope and pray that I can allow God to be the one to sing those words to me again, because sometimes, I'm rather forgetful.

Oh, here's one more quote that I loved from the pack:

"A good friend will sharpen your character, draw your soul into the light, and challenge your heart tlo love in a greater way." Edward Bulwer-Lytton.

May you find love wherever you are.

God's blessings,

--Melanie
