Beautiful Threads

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.” – Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.” – Khalil Gibran

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.” – Khalil Gibran (A little Barry sisters fun at family wedding.)

There are beautiful threads woven through the fabric of our life. Friends and family who are a part of our many memories and milestones, bonds that are enduring. Some we see everyday, others we see at weddings, graduations and funerals. And whether we talk to them every week or a few times a year, they remain a part of our foundation, our home. Family become friends, friends become family.

Through the celebrations, challenges, transitions and losses, they laugh, hug and cry us through our victories and defeats. Listening more than talking, holding our hand or giving us a high five. They provide the color and pattern in an often random world.

Think of all of those people in your life who are a part of your fabric and call one of your beautiful threads today.

  3. What a nice “thread” to read this morning! Also, I love that quote – On a bad day it’s often finally getting to connect with the ones who “get” you that cheers you up. Filing this post under good-thing-to-remember 🙂

  4. I was struck by your response above–you said that you are blessed with many beautiful threads. A very lovely lady in our neighborhood (who sadly passed away) used to say that she had so many wonderful friends. My human mommy would reply to her, “Zelda, you have wonderful friends because you are a wonderful friend.” You are a beautiful thread.
