I came across this lovely quote sometime ago. So long ago, I don't even remember where I found it. But I love it and thought you might too! It's excellent to put in a card to your BFF!
A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together. Knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it. Keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
Dinah Maria Mulock, author and poet (1826-1887)
If you have one such friend in your life, you are very blessed!
