One thought

my Mother

shared with me-

if you have one real friend in your lifetime

you are very fortunate.

I am


with a

bouquet of friends.

Each is like a different flower.

Our reciprocal  relationships

have brought out

our many

interests, talents

and ways of being.

When a family member

is also a friend,

the splendor

of each of us


The special depth

with some friends

makes them

Soul Friends,

Anam Cara

in Gaelic.

My Mother

would be so


to know

how many really

wonderful friends

fill my life

with love.
