{ Gift }

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives
mean the most to us,
we often find that it is those who,
instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures,
have chosen rather to share our pain
and touch our wounds
with a warm and tender hand.

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment
of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing
and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares."
~Henri Nouwen

Happy, happy birthday my dear friend Louise.
I'd like to thank you on your birthday for the {{gift}} you are to me.
You are absolutely indispensable & irreplaceable in my life.
Love you to pieces.

Happy 2nd Birthday {yesterday} Maxi-Doodle Bugs!!!
