PURE AND SIMPLE ‘KIMNESS’

 

We share them when we find them; these mangled little gems, mostly in our cyber communications.  But sometimes, a special treat, we get to share them face to face.  Breakfast or a glass of wine at sunset …

When life throws kerb balls at you …

Tears were strolling down my cheeks …

Cartoons of cigarettes …

She nearly had a credenza …

Oh, how we laugh together at deep-voices ladies expressing the wonder of life and giggle over handbags we don’t need, but buy because they’re good for the soul!

There are others times; when she simply sends a card…

There is nothing we like to see so much as the gleam of pleasure in a person’s eye when he feels that we have sympathized with him, understood him. At these moments something fine and spiritual passes between two friends.

These are the moments worth living.

    I love this quote.

    This reminds me of the woman who always purchased “Royal Dolphin” ornaments…

    I treasure such moments between friends… Loved those mangled gems, especially, for some reason: Tears were strolling down my cheeks … – still laughing 🙂

      It’s too funny, I wish I had jotted them all down over the years …

    Hello Darling…have the family noticed the no smoking yet?

    1. theonlycin says:

      I think all they notice are the ‘secret’ cigarettes 😦

    A giggle and a little inspiration. A good recipe for the day. 🙂

  10. Do you know, my friend and I were saying just exactly this over a cup of tea today! Not quite as beautifully as you, though, Cindy:-)

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thank you Kate 🙂

    Essential sustenance. Fuel for the times we have to wobble through the pitches of life.

    …special moments indeed…

    Friendships like these are valuable beyond measure. It is good that you recognize and appreciate it – it is the way it should be… I miss my friends now that I am far apart… small things start taking on an even deeper meaning. I am grateful though that I appreciated it while I had it – no regrets, just missing 😦

      1. Liane says:

        Long distance relationships don’t always last (I find). Sending them is one thing, but when they are not returned, it is like sending them to a couch… same response… maybe it is just me. I have to say I make great use of mediums like Facebook and Skype, but only a small intimate circle – basically siblings and one friend – responds. Without a response it would be my circle of one. Nothing beats the touch of a hug or a knowing look when you need it most, whether to receive it or needed by another…

        I have a handful of ‘snailmail’ penfriends and can’t describe the joy I feel when I spy an envelope in my post box. It is sad when things taper off.

    What a great post — I love the silly quotes. Made me smile to think of some of the dumb things I’ve shared with my ‘special’ friends — things only they would ‘get’. Have a great weekend Cindy.

    1. theonlycin says:

      The ‘getting’ is a magic element in friendship 🙂

    I laughed my socks off at this post.

    1. Count Czardas says:

      Damn. Wrecked that. Meant to say “smocks”. Damn.

        While shepherds washed their socks by night …
        all seated on the ground; the angel of the Lord came down, and glory shone around …
