“Friendship” by Diane Maria Muloek Craik


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 with the breath of kindness...blow the rest away.
