Barbara Sue's Angels & Poems
To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it's his/her fault; If he/she betrays you twice, it's your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.
God gives every bird it's food, But he does not throw it into it's nest.
He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses more; He who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
The tongue weighs practically nothing, But so few people can hold it.
A FRIEND IS A TREASURE
A friend is someone we turn to, When our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone we treasure, For our friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives, With beauty, joy, and grace. And makes the world we live in, A better and happier place.

Friendship is a strange thing....we find ourselves telling each other the deepest details of our lives...things we don't even share with our families who raised us...But what is a friend? A confidant? A lover? A fellow email junkie? A shoulder to cry on? an ear to listen? a heart to feel?...A friend is all these things...and more. No matter where we met,....I call you friend. A word so small...yet so large in feeling...a word filled with emotion. It is true great things come in small packages.
Once the package of friendship has been opened, it can never be closed...it is a constant book always written...waiting to be read...and enjoyed
We may have our disagreements...we may argue...we may concern one another... friendship is a unique bond that lasts through it all.... A part of me is put into my friends...some it is my humor...some it is my listening ear...some it is real life experiences...some it is my romanticism...but with all, it is friendship. Friendships forged are a construct stronger than steel built as a foundation....necessary for life...and necessary for love. :-)
Friends, you and me.... you brought another friend... and then there were 3... we started our group... Our circle of friends... and like that circle... there is no beginning or end.. Keep this going.... Email all your friends this message.... Email all those friends you never met.... Those you have... and those you've lost along the way... This is to all wonderful people I have met personally or online!
Accepts you as you are
Believes in "you"
Calls you just to say "hi"
Doesn't give up on you
Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts)
Forgives your mistakes
Invites into his/her heart
Keeps you close at heart
Loves you for who you are
Makes a difference in your life
Picks you up
Quiets your fears
Raises your spirits
Says nice things about you
Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
Walks beside you
Yells at you when you won't listen and
Zaps you back to reality
May we always be "good buddies"
May we always be "good friends"
and may our friendship be the kind
that will never end.
THE ABC'S OF FRIENDSHIP
Always be honest, would you want THEM to lie to you?
Be there when they need you, or you may wind up alone.
Cheer them on, we all need encouragement now and then.
Don't look for their faults, even if you have none.
Encourage their dreams, what would we be without them?
Forgive them, you just MAY do something wrong sometime.
Get together often, misery loves company, so does glee.
Have faith in them, the human animal is remarkable.
Include them, you may need to be included sometime.
Just be there when they need you.
Know when they need a hug, and couldn't you use one?
Love them unconditionally, that is the ONLY condition.
Make them feel special, because aren't we ALL special?
Never forget them, who wants to feel forgotten?
Offer to help, and know when "No thanks" is just politeness.
Praise them honestly and openly.
Quietly disagree, noisy NO's make enemies.
Really listen, a friendly ear is a soothing balm.
Say you're sorry, don't let them assume it.
Talk frequently, communication is important.
Use good judgment.
Verbalize your feelings!
Wish them luck, hopefully good!
Xamine your motives before you "help" out.
Your words count, use them wisely.
Zip your lips when told a secret.
By following these ABC's as often as you are able, you SHOULD live a LONG and friend-filled life.
A Friend Like You
There's lots of things
With which I'm blessed,
My problems have been few,
But of all, this one's the best
To have a friend like you.
In times of trouble
Friends will say,
"Just ask, I'll help you through it."
But you don't wait for me to ask,
You just get up and do it!
And I can think
of nothing more
That I could wisely do,
Than know a friend,
And be a friend,
And have a friend like you.
When God Created Mothers
By Erma Bombeck
When the good Lord was creating mothers He
was into His sixth day of "overtime" when the angel
appeared and said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on
And the Lord said, "Have you read the
specs on this order? She has to be completely washable, but not
plastic; Have 180 moveable parts... all replaceable; Run on black
coffee and leftovers; Have a lap that disappears when she stands
up; A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a
disappointed love; And six pairs of hands."
The angel shook her head slowly and said,
"Six pairs of hands... no way."
"It's not the hands that are causing me
problems," said the Lord. "It's the three pairs of eyes
that mothers have to have."
"That's on the standard model?"
asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees
through closed doors when she asks, "What are you kids doing
in there?" when she already knows. Another here in the back
of her head that sees what she shouldn't but what she has to
know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a
child when he goofs up and say, "I understand and I Love
You" without so much as uttering a word."
"Lord", said the angel, tugging His
sleeve gently, "Come to bed. Tomorrow..."
"I can't," said the Lord, "I'm
so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have
one who heals herself when she is sick... can feed a family of
six on one pound of hamburger... and can get a nine-year-old to
stand under a shower."
The angel circled the model of a mother very
slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed.
"But tough!" said the Lord
excitedly. "You cannot imagine what this mother can do or
endure." "Can it think?" "Not only think, but
it can reason and compromise," said the Creator.
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her
finger across the cheek."There's a leak," she
pronounced. "I told You. You were trying to put too much
into this model."
"It's not a leak," said the Lord,
"it's a tear."
