Meme Monday and Awards Too #4

Melanie started this Meme Monday, and I can't believe how far behind I am. Apologies to you and to those of you who are waiting for me to play along. I'm such a loser. Hanna, I'm so sorry for the delay, and I appreciate you sending me such thoughtful, warm words (2 1/2 weeks ago *yipes*). As some of you know, I'm a huge believer in friends - Remember, I'm "Friend Mischief," the Snapdragon.

- Start copy here -

"Your friend is your need answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him wim your hunger,
and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not me "nay" in­
your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay".
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires,
all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in hisabsence,
as the mountain to the climber is clearer from me plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of his own mystery is not love
but a net cast forth: and only yhe unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
lf he must know the ebb of your tide,
let him know the flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours te live.
For it is his te fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter,
and sharing of pleasures.
Far in the dew of little things the heart finds its moming and is refreshed.
"- Walt Whitman - LEAVES OFF GRASS

Hi Chuck, I read what The Teach wrote and what you wrote her back and SO I am not going to worry about when I can get the awards posted and the meme done!! Our laptop is at the shop hopefully being fixed! I am using the Wii tonight and Kelly hooked up the keyboard for me to use!! I am out visiting my blogging friends! I have a new post and it tells about the horrible mess I made on Thursday night with the garbage disposal I put way to much into and backed it up in the drain system down in the basement in Kelly's room where it flooded! What a mess! But all is well now!! Love and Hugs Grams

Thanks for the lovely awards! I almost forgot to Thank you!!! Thank you for thinking of me! When I get the laptop back I will add you to my side bar!!

I'll do this. Thanks for including me in this lovely meme.
