Don't go it alone.


{My afternoon cuppa in Paris..ahh le sigh..}

My was it ever beautiful out this morning!!

Over my steaming hot cuppa this morning I was reading some words from Ecclesiastics..let me share.

It's better to have a partner than go it alone.
Share the work, share the wealth.
And if one falls down, the other helps,
But if there's no one to help, tough!

Two in a bed warm each other.
Alone, you shiver all night.

By yourself you're unprotected
With a friend you can face the worst.
Can you round up a third?
A three stranded rope isn't easily snapped.

(The Message)

Beautifully flawed, honest relationships are few and far between.
They are precious, hold them close.

The past few weeks I've had the immense blessing of noticing some of mine. By "noticing" I mean appreciating. Appreciating tears, long conversation, words of encouragement.

Our lives are rarely uneventful..life comes at us as an unrelenting force.

Having a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on during those forces makes the burden lighter.

I'm pretty sure it was meant to be that way.

You are very fortunate to have really close, good friends in your life. Unfortunately at this time, I don't. I don't have that close connection with any of my female friends. My hubby is my best friend and God, of course. :)
