Real Friends

Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.

~George Eliot

Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty. ~Sicilian Proverb

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.

From the Heart

When we look up, it widens our horizons. We see what a little speck we are in the
universe, so insignificant, and we all take ourselves so seriously, but in the
sky, there are no boundaries. No differences of caste or religion or race.

Daughter Eva is training for a May ice show, and usually by the time we arrive for 2:30 practice on Saturday┬áthe ice has been “zammed”. Last week the zamming wasn’t done until 2:30, giving Eva a little extra time to stretch before skating.

It is only thanks to the kindness and generosity of a dear blogger named Ralph, who not only made certain Santa visited my home┬áthis past Christmas but made it possible for my family to skate this year. Ralph has helped many, many people in many ways, changing many lives for the better. Here’s to all the wonderful people like Ralph who change the world for the better! ­čÖé
