Thought for Today
“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few,
and let those few be well tried before
you give them your confidence.
True friendship is a plant of slow growth,
and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity
before it is entitled to the appellation.”
My good friend Tony, who is our resident gardener and came to live with us back in March, (You can read more about it here) left Thursday on a 100 mile bicycle trip back to the city where he used to live. He wanted to visit family and friends he has not seen since he moved here.
He is due back today and I can’t wait to see him, I have missed him terribly, even though it has only been a few days. I have missed seeing him work about the garden and tending to the chickens, and I have missed his companionship. His two cats, Ash and Orange have missed him too.
