Friendship

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I stumbled upon this wonderful quote over at Hope Filled Magazine

  8. I've been reading back through your posts a bit (trying not to think about the lovely recipes you share) and it's been nice to see that we like similar books. I've been a fan of McCall Smith for some years, and enjoyed seeing them translated onto TV as well - have you see the series? If you haven't it's on eBay...
