A Circle of Friends

Shoulder to Shoulder,

We Anchor our Hearts Together,

Bound by Memories of Time and Place

In a Sacred Litany of Belonging.

Together we Breathe in Hope

Presenting Our Colorful Offerings

To the Compassionate One who Blesses Our Dreams

Remembering, that, in One of Many Incarnations, He had Little.

Alone, Life’s Challenges Weigh Heavy in the Balance

and Sometimes it Feels as though

We are Not Sure We Want to Travel in the Direction

Others have Walked;

Yet, Wearing the Heart of Heroes,

We Continue the Journey,

Overcoming Great Obstacles

Sometimes Alone,

Sometimes with a Faithful Companion,

Until Our Spirits Soar Again,

Feeling as if we are One-Hundred Strong,

Returning to The Circle of Friendship,

Our Source of Nurture, Strength and True Belonging.

Peace, Love and Hugs from your good friend, Noelle

  2. This is a very thoughtful post Noelle, and no one could have done it better for our dear friend Joe S!!
    I try to enjoy everything I do, but it’s just not the same at HMH without Joe S. I hope and pray he feels better real soon. I join in with you in this special prayer for the good health of Joe S.

    The photographs by George Koruth are so special, heart warming and cheerful too!! There is much innocence and strength of oneness, a firm bonding and the genuineness of a true circle of friends is seen on their faces!!

    With all good wishes and good cheer!!
