A Little Help From My Friends...

We all know the first line
...and it couldn't be any more true...Melanie left me a comment on my Cotton Club post saying just that and it got me thinking...I do get by with a little help from my friends...and some days with a lot of help. But then I thought about the next line in the song...
Mmm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
There were days this past year that I just wasn't sure I even wanted to try, but there were wonderful friends that just wouldn't let that happen.  Up and at 'em...they'd give me a day or so and then it was time for me to give it a try...I will be forever grateful.   

A huge thank you to all of you who have stuck with me through this past year...thank you for being a friend to me...thank you for your comments, and e-mails...thank you for checking on me...I hope that I can be as good a friend to you as you have been to me.  You all are wonderful!

YOU are so special to me, Carol. You are sincere, caring and loving. I am thanking YOU for continuing the journey with me - with ups and downs.

If I could reach out and give a hug, I would. Please accept this cyber hug from someone who admires you immensely.

You are a caring, compassionate woman, Carol. Why wouldn't your friends rally 'round you when you go through difficult times? I have loved knowing you--even though it is "only" online. : )

That's what friends are for . . . .

Oh, I needed to hear that tonight. I'm doing my first Inklingo quilt and was so confused about printing, but my friends at the online group got me by!

Friendship feeds the soul!

Diane said...

The blessing of friendship flows in both directions. Sometimes we need, sometimes we give. Sometimes we do both at the same time.

Angie said...

While reading your post, Mr. Rogers' song began playing in my head. Remember it? F-R-I-E-N-D, special. You are my friend, you're special to me. :) OK, so I'm a little off key, but the sentiment is heartfelt. :) You are very sweet to thank your friends, but your friends are very thankful for you as well.

Janet said...

I really hope you have an awesome year this year Carol!

Vicky said...

No, thank you for being such a constant source of inspiration! And now that song is also in my head, along with Darlene's!! :)
