They say there is magic
And I'm hoping it's true
For it seems to be sprinkled
In all that you do

I was lonely and wandering
Without dreams, without sight
You extended your hand
In the darkest of nights

Life has few surprises
That make a heart sing
But the beauty of friendship
Helps ease every sting

When I'm feeling so down,
And nothing's going quite right
Your friendship enfolds me
In a circle of light

Karen Shaw Matteson

We should seize every opportunity
to give encouragement.
Encouragement is oxygen
to the soul.

George M. Adams
