I Welcome "You" to my

Friendship Garden!


The heart is a garden
That always has room
For the flowers of kindness
And friendship that blooms!


You have just entered a very special place.
This is where the flowers of friendship
grow and flourish.


The beauty of friendship, like the beauty of flowers, is very hard to describe in words.  There are many kinds of friends ... just as there are lots of different flowers, and yet each has it's own unique beauty to offer.


There are friends who share our paths briefly at different points in our lives, while others stay close to us ... year after year.

Some are vibrant and admired for their strength, while others are delicate whispers of color ... whose gentleness always has a special place in our hearts.

We all meet many different kinds of friends along the path of life, each adding color and joy and beauty to our days.


My life has been blessed by the many wonderful friends in it.  They are the full and beautiful blossoms in my garden.  This page is dedicated to each one of them.  It's just a small way of letting them know how I feel about them and how special I think they are.  I am very lucky to have each of them in my garden of life and I love them all.


When I first wanted to create a web site, I wanted to do it just for fun, and I never thought anyone would really come to look at it.  I am just amazed at how all the little seeds of ideas I had in my mind have all taken root, sprouted and are really growing.  My cyber garden is growing into something much more than I ever imagined.  It has become a place that I can put my whole heart into and a place I can expose feelings that I normally keep hidden.

I've really learned a lot since I've had a web site.  The one thing I've learned the most though, is that there are still so many wonderful and kind people left in the world.  That's really the reason that this page has been planted.  I want to thank all of you that have taken the time from your busy lives to visit my web site.  I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you.  Many of you have become the "flower buds" in my garden, as you are blooming into a real friendship.


So many of you have nurtured my garden with your kind and thoughtful words.  Some of them are from my Guestbook and others have been in E-mail's.  I am so touched by your letters and messages you send me, that it sometimes brings tears to my eyes.  But that is good, too, because my garden needs lots of water to flourish and grow.

I also want to thank all you "Butterflies" that have just silently fluttered in to look at a page and just as quietly fluttered out, leaving no trace that you've been here.  Without everyone's visits, the web site would still be here, but it would not have flourished like it has.


I do try to e-mail as many of you that I can to personally thank you all for your kind words, but if I ever miss one of you, I still want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Thanks to all of you who have visited my web site and inspired and encouraged me to continue.  Your kind words always bring much sunshine to my garden and smiles to my face.  Every one of you have helped my garden to grow and become a place of peace and beauty because you have all become beautiful blossoms in my heart.



Click on the above Arbor to follow the path to my " Butterfly Garden."  This very special garden contains links to some Homepages of just a few wonderful friends that have "fluttered" into my garden of life from the "net."  I do hope you will visit their sites also.


There have been so many wonderful poems written about the wonderful gift of friendship.  Somehow poets are able to capture the feelings we have for special friends in exactly the right way.  They say it all in a way you or I never could.  These are a few poems that I received in e-mails and some that have been collected over the years that I'd like to share with you.  I hope you will find some that you will enjoy.

Some of the authors are unknown but if you know the correct source of items listed, I will appreciate hearing from you so corrections can be made and proper credit given.
