i thought this poem very apt for our scrapbook max family...anyone else got a nice family/friend related poem to share......lets spread some love on this site ;):D

Uncounted Blessings
Jill Wolf

Whenever we gather together,
The words are not easy to find,
But love speaks a common language
When people have ties that bind.

We don't always say what we're feeling
As often as families should;
We don't count our blessings out loud,
But somehow they're understood.

We know that we're thankful for living
With the comfort of each other's care;
We're grateful for memories and stories,
And the jokes that our family shares.

We might leave a promise unspoken,
But we know that we're loyal and true;
We can count on companions through life,
In the sunshine and shadows, too.

We might show some special attention
To a stranger, acquaintance, or guest,
But we never forget in our hearts
About those that we really love best.

These blessings can never be counted
Like money or gold dividends;
They can only be shared as the love
That exists when families are friends.

A Friend is...

A friend is someone we turn to
When our spirits need a lift,
A friend is someone we treasure
For our friendship is a gift,
A friend is someone who fills our lives
With Beauty, Joy and Grace
And makes the world we live in
A Better and Happier Place.

Are you a FRIEND?

Life Without Friendship

Life without friendship...
is like the dawn without the sun.
Life without friendship...
is like the sky without the moon
when the evening has begun.

Life without friendship...
is like a rose without rain.

Life without friendship...
just wouldn't be the same.

Life without friendship...
is like a ship without a sea.
Life without friendship...
Just could not be
without a friend like you and me.

Oh, chucks, these are so touching, you got me sitting here wiping me nose... So I want to share with you too...

Aunt Jemima's panckaques
without her syrup
Is like a spring, without a fall

There is one thing worse
In the universe...
That's no Aun Jemima's at all!!!

:D

yeah nice words if you really mean them that is. .


hunny i love everyone, scrapbook max is the most loving friendly site i've ever had the pleasure to be part of - this is my online family :D

many of the ladies here i actually speak to on the phone and although they live hundreds of miles away on other continents to me they are the best friends i've ever known, they know if they need me in any way if i can i will help, and if all they need is an ear to bend, a shoulder to cry on or someone to share laughter with i'm there for them always

so yes i mean every word :D

I love these poems, gonna save them too. Here is some of my favorites.

F - is for forgiveness
R - is for respect
I - is for intelligence
E - is for eternal friendship
N - is for need for one another
D - is for dumb mistakes
S - is for the sticking up for each other.





Sometimes you just can't "go it alone".
The challenge is too much to bear.
So you turn to that rare and precious friend.
Someone who has never let you down.

She listens, consoles and supports.
She knows you well enough
To say what needs to be said,
Yet she's smart enough to know
what not to say.

She's always there for you,
Arms extended...heart open...
Ready to support you 'til you can stand
on your own again.
And you thank God you have
"someone to lean on".



True friendship multiplies the good
in life and divides it's evils.
Strive to have friends,
for life without friends is
like life on a desert island.
To find one real friend in
a lifetime is good fortune;
to keep him is a blessing.

This is a beautiful poem from a famous Cuban poet of the 1800's. Sorry it looses in the translation, but I hope you get the main thought...

I cultivate a white rose
In January and June
For the sincere friend
Who reaches to me with his honest hands

And for the cruel one
That tears away my loving heart
I cultivate neither thistles nor thorns
I cultivate.... A white rose
