Lord, thank You for loyal, loving friends
Who are there in winter or springtime fair.
New acquaintances are easy to come by,
But true friendship is extremely rare.
A friend always sees the best in you,
Although they've known you at your worst.
They laugh with you in the good times,
When storms threaten, they'll be there first.
They'll offer a shoulder to rest your head
When tears are welling in your eyes.
Take a walk down friendship's path with you
And help chase away those stormy skies.
Lord, thank You for all the gifts You give;
Each one makes our life seem more worthwhile.
But one of the finest gifts you've given us
Is the warmth of friendship's loving smile.
Kit includes one of each item mentioned in
following poem (inside card)
A candle meant to light your way,
A flower to brighten your day.
A tiny sponge to dry your tears
and soak up the needless fears
A band aid meant to help you mend
your feelings when they ache.
An eraser comes in handy when
you've made a big mistake.
A paper clip reminds me of
how close I feel to you.
A candy for something sweet
when you are feeling blue.
A rubber band for
a great big squeeze.
A chocolate kiss
is sure to please.
A button cause my lips are sealed,
your secrets all inside.
A golden thread that's in a knot
to say our hearts are tied.
A magic star to wish upon
to make your dreams come true.
A little heart cause that's the place
where I shall cherish you!!!
