Girl Pals


The merits of female friendships are pretty well-established. Not least of which, who else will give you an honest opinion about your new hairstyle? However, many women find that their friendship circle shrinks as they get older. The pressures of parenting, work and spouses can leave little time for female bonding.

Cherish the old…….. Pray about the new…… and welcome what else God has in store for your life!

Many of us take friendships for granted. But lasting relationships provide more than someone to lean on when the going gets tough. In addition to the emotional benefits, camaraderie actually boosts your physical health. ( yes…being happy can IMPROVE your health )

However, remember that Friends are like Novocaine…… eventually you will see if the friendship like the dental medicine, is strong enough to deal with the pain that you SHALL / WILL endure!

Circle of Care


Everyone should have a circle of friends…a circle of loved ones… a circle of family members….  a circle of prayer partners etc..etc..etc.

Understand that this circle SHOULD NOT look how YOU think that it should look like or even be like if you are asking GOD TO DO IT….. We never know who we will need in life and also why LIMIT what God wants for you? There are soo soo many other people who have walked where you are PRESENTLY trying to go! Therefore, why not be open to what God has for you….wants for you….desires for you and most importantly >>>>CREATED FOR YOU!

Fellowship and Friendship goes together!! So remeber that HELP- LOVE and FRIENDSHIP  comes in all different colors, sizes and ages!

New – Old – Smile


Make new friends, but keep the old; Those are silver, these are gold. New-made friendships, like new wine, Age will mellow and refine. Friendships that have stood the test – Time and change – are surely best; Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray, Friendship never knows decay.

For ‘mid old friends, tried and true, Once more we our youth renew. But old friends, alas! may die, New friends must their place supply.

Cherish friendship in your breast- New is good, but old is best; Make new friends, but keep the old; Those are silver, these are gold.

Smile,smile and smile smile a smile that travels a mile…
smile a smile because it takes only a moment But the memory of it lasts forever…
smile a smile that worries of tomorrow sink into And hope brings a way to have a lucky day…
smile a smile when somebody hurts you For a smile is a balm that is ever healing….
smile a smile like you mean it so that the fake smile you offer fades away…
smile a smile because it can do wonders A smile can help you out of some blunders…
smile with immense glow, smile with joy for it is an expression that makes an impression…
Smile for the people in the world Because the world needs people who can smile…

Smile,smile and smile because it is just better than quitting…

FRIENDS………..


I dont need a lot of them – God knows that I dont!  How about just maybe maybe one or two who is able to be there for ME!  Nonetheless, overall I feel that  a friend gives THEMSELF as a gift……  in word as well as in deed.

Everyone desires / wants/ expects / needs a variety of things from their friendships. However, some things are foundational and should be considered “basic” things.

Respect Others

Respect, R-E-S-P-E-C-T as Aretha Franklin sang it, is a critical component of freedom. It’s the partner of freedom in that respecting another person’s competence and individuality provides the positive support so important to freedom.

A contrast makes this point: suppose someone grants you the freedom to follow your dream with an underlying current of disrespect. It might sound something like, “Go ahead if you must, I’ll be right here after you’ve chased that dream.” In other words, the person thinks you’ll fail and you’ll come crawling back.

The same scenario with respect might sound like, “Go ahead, I know how important this is to you and I support you 100%. I know you can do it!” Obviously, we’d all like to hear this latter response because of the inherent respect and support it conveys.

Support Those You Care About

Support is an important factor in any relationship. As we stretch ourselves, as we encounter rough spots and obstacles, a supportive relationship gives us strength and reassurance. Support rejuvenates and re-energizes. Aren’t we all attracted to people who are supportive of us?

Treat Everyone as an Equal

Equality is the enabler that says we’re both equal partners in this marriage, partnership, or friendship. A parent-child relationship is fine for teens and below, but among partners, friends, and adult children and their parents, without the underlying recognition of equality, respect is limited, support is more controlling than supportive, and commitment is probably more toward control than growth.

These are a few things that I give in a friendship… waiting for God to bless me with genuine friends as well. Just because I know a great deal of people / network with a great deal of people / minister with a great deal of people …. DOES NOT mean that those same individuals have made it into my CIRCLE OF FRIENDS!

A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone we treasure for our friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives with beauty, joy, and grace. And makes the whole world we live in a better and happier place.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom……and I am a beautiful garden right now! LOL 

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships OF ALL KINDS come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.  Also the most important ingredient that we put into any relationship is not what we say or what we do, but what we are.

Little kindness and courtesies are so important. In relationships, the little things are the big things.

Present your family and friends with their eulogies now!!!!!!!!!! –  Trust me, they surely won’t be able to hear how much you love them and appreciate them from inside the coffin!!!!
