Sweet Friendships

Today's post and YouTube video Hello Morning with Gina  ~ Sweet Friendships is about the sweet friendships I have made throughout my life in person and via snail mail.  I am so blessed by your friendships and treasure the cards and letters that I have received.  This is how I display them.

The first wrought iron "gate" is about 18" tall.  The second one is about 12" tall.  When I run out of room on them, I add cards to my kitchen mantel then my fireplace mantel.  I so enjoy receiving these sweet notes and cards from my friends.  I love sending them too! ♥

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
