Glasow once said, "A true friend never gets in your way unless you
happen to be going down." We agree with his thoughts, friends are there not
just for good times but also in challenging times. Collection compiled by
An Irish Friendship Wish
May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your window pane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
A Wish for a Friend Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers -
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours -
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
A Blessing for a Friend
May the blessing of the rain be on you -
the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit so that all the little flowers
may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.
May the blessing of the great rains be on you,
may they beat upon your spirit
and wash it fair and clean,and leave there
many a shining pool where the blue of
heaven shines, and sometimes a star.
"A friend is one who needs us and one whom we need."
"Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends,
for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the
power of going out of one's self, and appreciating whatever is
noble and loving in another."
