Friendship is a Gift

Image” A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
– Arabian Proverb

I searched high & low for a poem, quote or proverb that came close to expressing how I feel about having Sheila as my friend(I am in no way as eloquent as she).  The proverb above was as close as I could get and it still does not give her the praise she deserves.  I am so honored to call her my friend and look forward to continuing this journey with her.

In celebration of friendship and perhaps a hint of things to come, we wanted to offer a giveaway full of fun stuff to ring in the New Year. One person will win the package shown above, which includes a fabric bucket filled with 3 lavender-scented glycerin soaps, 2 ounces of lavender essential oil and a tiny “love” banner. To be entered into the giveaway, leave a comment. For a second chance to win, visit Sheila’s blog at and leave a comment over there as well. Comments will close on both blogs at midnight December 31, 2012. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on January 2, 2013. Good luck to everyone!

  1. So I left my comment on the wrong post. But, I have the sense that you’ll blow that chaff.

    Best friends are rare jewels. Thank you for the proverb. I have the glorious fortune of having someone to send it in a note to.

    And you have the glorious fortune to live in visiting distance to someone to give it to. Ah, life is good.
