    I keep my circle small.

    I love when I am friended here and then they read who I really am and unfriend me. Wish I could have that in real life. But you read the real me here. And for those that stayed friends your the true color of a friend I want to have. Hugs

    And I Don't Let Go

    When I find a person who is truly a good friend, I don't let go. I hold onto that with all my heart. I've only had three like that, and they lasted until death ended them. I only have one left.
