It is hot and stormy here in Texas today. 

All we've got right now in Fort Worth
are clouds and wind, and a vague promise of rain. 

So, of course, I'm thinking about snow
and one of my favorite Christmas movies,
 "It's A Wonderful Life."  

One of my favorite lines from the movie is
"No man is a failure who has friends." 

I love to see the little things around my house that remind me of my friends.

The friends I've known a long time. 
Found this when I was with Mernie in San Antonio.
 (I bought it for me, because  I think she believes the
first half of the saying is so "Joy" and because I know the last line
 is how I have felt about her for the past twenty years!)

The friends who are also family. 
Some of these marbles may actually belong
to my brothers - I kept them in my jewelry box for years. 
The Ball canning jar is from my mom.

The friends who live near by. 
Patti saw these five candle sticks at a garage sale and thought of me. 

The friends I have met through blogging. 
Ann, at Moonbeams & Fireflies had a beautiful post
and pictures of Columbines, I asked if she would sell me some seeds. 
She emailed me and in a month or so she sent me a packet of seeds - complete
with stems - as a gift.  Her blog is beautiful,  I have learned a thing or two from her,
and I have been entertained by her adventures.

And those of you who read my blog, thanks.
I always enjoy your comments - thank you.
You are all pretty wonderful.

I know that I am blessed.
