PRECIOUS THAN GOLD…

How do we choose the friends we keep and how do we decide to let go of the ones we do…?????

In the last twenty years of my life… I find that the people I come in contact with has been my best blessings in life..

I am always so lucky to find friends that do for me and have shown me so much kindness that I don’t even earned or deserved…

I’m so full of gratitude and appreciation to all these people I called friends..

most is no longer apart of my life..

A few I keep in contact with occasionally and the other few I formed an everlasting bond..

I’m never in the position to return the favors issued to me… and I often feel guilty or bad about always on the receiving end…

But…

These friends of mine stand by me and still gives without hesitation or reservations…

How did I get so blessed to always attract friends like these… I must have the favor of GOD…

I have come in connection with this one guy.. on a social media…

and I was going through some financial hardship.. and I put out a GoFundMe campaign to try to raise some money…

He was the first one to donate… and not only once but four times..

I started to communicate with him letting him know how much I appreciated his contribution… our connection went from emails to phone calls..

It’s been well over a year now.. we have never actually met.. but we have become really good phone pals that he has now become a major part of my day…

This friendship I happen to connect with.. has proven to be one of my greatest connection…and he’s still helping me every time I needed that boost…

He never hesitated to come through for me even when I know he had his own life to deal with…

How did I get so lucky?????

I have form a friendship with these other men..

One a electrician….

Never charges me for any work he does for me…

What a friend he is…

My ex husband.. we couldn’t make our marriage work.. but he still remains my friend even after fifteen years of separation..

I had a friend who fix my fridge everytime it needs to be..

and I don’t even keep in contact with him unless I need some services on my refrigerator.. and I asked. Why does he feels the the need to..

And there is my lawn care / handyman…

He’ll do anything I asked for the bare minimal and sometimes doesn’t even charge me..

My next door neighbor… she has done me so many favors over the last twenty years … that I feel so obligated to be her friend .. I know I could never repay her for all of her kindness… so I remain loyal….

I worked for twenty years… at the same company..

and every co-worker was my friend.. they would go out of there way for me every time….

And then there was my brother in law…

I needed someone to take me to see my doctors.. I asked him.. and without hesitation he spent the next year and a half of his life making sure I didn’t missed a visit…. and during us spending so much time together…. we form a bond of friendship that he calls me his BEST FRIEND..

We lost him to pancreatic cancer recently though..

I was so broken up even though I knew he was on his way out…

A friend like him is so rare.. and he has such a good heart…and was such a beautiful man inside and out… he always comes through with his promises…

He was such a huge loss to my life…

I could go on and on.. about all the peoples that touches my life in such a way that makes me feel so special…

All in all.. just to show you that blessings comes in many different forms…

And I have been truly blessed with friends…

Friends they say.. are more precious than gold.. and I can endorse that fact..

I have three friends from my younger years .. that’s over thirty years of friendship… and we still connect.. and they are still there for me..

I feel my life is a great success and that my accomplishments have been great… not in monetary gains.. but I’m truly rich in friendships.. and love…

Count your blessings.. name them one by one.. And I have a long list of names… I called blessings…

  1. Such a poignant piece … I recently connected with a friend and love from my past. When we finally stood toe to toe … thirty-five years disappeared in our shared smile. We talk daily … and we are so blessed. g

    1. Mmmm ..

      Isnโ€™t that a wonderful feeling..

      Friends are really a very valuable asset
      To our life ..

      Poignant though..??!!!

      I was hoping to evoke the opposite feelings really…

      But I guess itโ€™s all about how you feel when looking back on long lasting and valuable relationships
