Treasured Friendship
In trust and harmony
our friendship, you and me
Treasured times together
a fond-ship that lasts forever
Looking forward to those special times
we'd meet somewhere nice
when the weather is fine
We'd share our secrets, yours and mine
Yes, pleasant and happy times.
Janet Vargas  © May  2012


True Friendship
If you're feeling joyful or sometimes bleak
Your presence I would always seek
We lend each other special strengths
we're with each other for the length.

We seek to build each other up
in joyful loyalty and trust
We like to have those special times
where we share our secrets__ yours and mine
True friendship lasts forever.

Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you.  They are not perfect but are always perfect

Wise words with Friends
Be careful who you allow to shape your thinking
for the words of some will send your faith sinking.
Don't let their words affect your hope
sometimes they're not happy unless you cope.
Friendship is not meant for meeting one's needs
this would be kindness, yes indeed
if they would truly understand
an ear to hear and a helping hand
are meant for occasions, what celebration!
If they don't respect this then do not miss
a moment to tell them this truly offends.
Friendship is for happy times
caring yes but not all the time.

Lunchtime Acquaintance
We like to go for lunch together
Meeting with you is such a pleasure.
My times spent with you I do treasure
I hope that this friendship lasts forever!

Friendship Garden
In my Friendship Garden,
Grows a Flower
rare and true.
I look a little closer
and find that it is you.
To me it means all is well.
My sky is clear and blue,
and that is how it always is,
whenever I think of you.

May Our Friendship Last Forever
May our friendship last forever;
May I sail upon your sea.
May we go through life together;
May there always be a "we"
May I be your endless sky;
May you breathe my gentle air.
May you never wonder why
Each time you look for me, I'm there.
May we be for each a smile
Like the warm, life-giving sun;
Yet when we're in pain awhile,
May our suffering be one.
May we share our special days,
The happiness of one for two;
And if we must go separate ways,
Let my love remain with you.

Attributes in Friendship
You don't have to meet my every need
but we're there for each other when there's
a special need.
Joyful times we like to share
that should not have to be one that's rare.

Life's not perfect, this we know
in these times our kindness shows
We're there for each other
like sisters and brothers
You have my trust and loyalty
affections that were meant to be__
always constant but I am free
Seek for balance and liberty.

My friends from Kurdistan. We like to spend times together just like a family. We share our cuisine and lots of laughs. We share our photos and stories and care for each other.


My Prayer for You
I thought of you so much today
I went to God in prayer.
To ask Him to watch over you
and show you that I care.
My prayer for you was not for rewards
ones that you can touch or feel.
But true rewards for happiness
that are so very real.
Like love and understanding
in all the things you do.
For guidance when you need it most
to see your troubles through.
I asked Him for good health for you
so your future could be bright.
And faith to accept life's challenges
with courage to do what's right.
I gave thanks to Him for granting my prayer
to bring you peace and love.
May you feel the warmth in your life
with Gods blessings from above.

Friends are Life’s Gift of Love
If people like me did’nt know people like you
Life would lose it’s meaning and richness too…
For the friends that we make are life’s gift of love,
And I think friends are sent right from Heaven Above…..
And thinking of you somehow makes me feel
That God is Love and He’s very Real.

Friends are God's way of taking care of us


A Person like You
The meaning of being special,
is found in a person like you.
A friend who is so thoughtful,
in everything they say and do.

A person who betters my life,
by being a part of it each day.
Someone who touches my heart,
in a special, and unique way.

A person who's always giving,
and willing to help all they can.
Who truly gives from their heart,
showing they care for who I am.

This friend I have found in you,
is as special as one could be.
And I am so blessed in my life,
that you've been a friend to me.

“When you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful if he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls or riches,
but the love of real true friends.”

Valued Friendship
A precious bonding__  yours and mine

sent to us on wings of a dove

Faithfulness,  trust and love.

Friendship is a two way street, you put in
some effort and they put in some effort and together, this keeps your friendship alive and flourishing.  -- Sheree Hanihan


Wisdom in Friendships
We're not confidants all the time
The weather does not have to be always fine.
Occasional confidence when the need arises
We give each other special suprises.
That is a friendship that deserves our trust__
yes, a friendship that will truly last
the tests of time__
when everything does not work out sublime
Where pleasant acquaintance makes one refreshed......

On these qualities our friendships should rest.

"Life is partly what we make it, and partly what is made by the friends whom we choose." ~ Tehyi Hsieh

Uplifting Friendships
A friend is someone we turn to
when our spirits need a lift
A friend is someone we treasure 
for our friendship is a gift
A friendship is someone who fills our lives
with beauty, joy and grace
and makes the whole world
we live in a better and happy place.

A Lasting Friendship
Joy is the keynote of our times
not sadness and problems all the time.
Yes, that is a friendship to be sought
A friendship that cannot be sold or bought.
With certain qualities and strengths__
we remain together for the length.

Worthy of my Friendship
A friendship that's kept in consideration
is one that's held in celebration.
One that's worth such cultivation
and leading to pleasant expectations.

Refreshing Acquaintance 
There was a lady I met called Ruth 
we were pleased to make acquaintance 
She listened to me like Jesus does 
secrets to her from my heart I shared. 
She brings out only the best in me 
believes the best and my heart was blessed.   Who would dream she works for a church (reception) 
She showed me the interest of a long time friend__ 
her smile and her cheer are with me still.

A Delightful Surprise
I have a new friend Sheree
To meet her was an experience
I saw her through Jesus eyes and mine
Moments with her are divine.
She has a special way with words
They linger in your ears when heard.
Her spirit is so sweet
quiet natured, a little shy
unassuming, a nice surprise.
To me she is a “precious gem".
I’m looking forward to knowing her more
To be with her is like pleasant shores
My young sister in Christ you are so nice__
our friendship shall be without end.

Forever Friends
Sometimes in life you find a special friend
Someone who changes your life just by 
being part of it
Someone who makes you laugh until 
you can't stop
Someone who makes you believe that
there is really good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there is a
locked door just waiting for you to open it.

This is forever friendship.

The Miracle Of Friendship
There is a miracle called Friendship
that dwells within the heart
and you don't know how it happens
or when it even starts.
But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift
and you realize that Friendship
is God's most precious gift.

Jean Kyler McManus 

It's alright to have a listening ear if you listen 
to your needs as well. ©

It is good to make friends that bring out the 
best in us rather than the not so good traits. ©

"Treat your friends as you do your pictures, and place them in their best light."
~ Jennie Jerome Churchill ~


A Desired Friend
I think somewhere, sometime, I may find
A friend who will be forever true,
With a heart of beautiful eternal love
Maybe it will be somebody new. I’ll imagine a heart so very caring
And a willingness to share,
A delightfully sweet sense of humor
With spontaneous care. They shall know how to keep a secret
And when to turn to prayer,
Not needing to always chat
But glad to just “be there”. Might I search away in the blue yonder
Or shall I look behind,
I’m feeling such a sweet tickle inside
Someone special is coming to my mind. Oh then, why should I search so far and wide
For a friend of God’s design,
When your heart was prepared before I prayed
Waiting for me, there all the time.

Sometimes there are no words needed between friends …a knowing look or a hug can say much more.  ~ Author Unknown


True Qualities in Friendship
You have a say and I have mine
we may not fully agree all the time
You don't have to meet my every need
that is a kindness, love indeed.
Your manner fosters special trust
not given to pride contempt or lust
That is a friendship that will work
where discontentment does not lurk.
Janet Vargas  © May  2012


Healthy Friendships
People are not always at their best
but on these qualities our friendships
should rest:
Forgiveness when one speaks a word out
of line
but it should not be necessary all the time
Some interests to be shared and ventured
Pleasant times that we can treasure__
that does not have to be without measure
And occasional time for adventure.
Janet Vargas  © May  2012


Yesterday brought the beginning, tomorrow brings the end, and somewhere in the middle we became the best of friends.  ~Author Unknown


Giving is the Key to Living
Every day is a reason for giving
and giving is the key to living....
So let us give ourselves away
not just today but every day.
And remember, a kind and thoughtful deed
or a hand outstretched in a time of need
Is the rarest of gifts for it is a part
not of the purse but a loving heart....
And he who gives of himself will find
true JOY of heart and PEACE of mind.
Helen Steiner Rice   ©


My Sister. She is such a sweet person full of adventure, a zest for life....and the above poem describes her so well.


The Ideal Home 
On laughter and happiness you can build
a home
With peace, sweet peace you can call your own
and love, such love can always be found. 
Material things come second__ 
they don’t have to be the best in town 
Yes, these are the values that make for a home
one I will gladly call my own.
Janet Vargas  © June  2012

A Mother...
When you're a child she walks before you,
to set an example.
When you're a teenager she walks behind you
to be there should you need her.
When you're grown up she walks beside you
so that as two friends you can enjoy life together..

My Mother kept a Garden
My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it's start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough -
but not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong -
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy -
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me

Grandchild, It’s Been a Joy
Grandchild, It’s been a joy
since you were small,
to watch you learn and grow,
To share in your accomplishments
and see the warmth you show…

And all the love
and pride that’s felt
keeps growing each year, too,
Because it means so much
to have a grandchild like you.

Nature of a Woman 
A woman is never too assured she’s loved Constant affection is sometimes nice 
Sometimes she will sacrifice 
something for her spouse or child. 
She’s apt to express those things she feels Sometimes she’s not on an even keel 
Often she loves you more than you know 
And when she’s upset her fluster shows. 
If you would please her, do something nice 
Your warmth and kindness by day and night.

Grandparents Bestow
Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren the strength and wisdom that time
and experience have given them.   
Grandchildren bless their Grandparents
with a youthful vitality and innocence
that help them stay young at heart forever.   Together they create a chain of love
linking the past with the future.
The chain may lengthen, but it will never part...

I'm the twinkle in my Grandpa's eye...
-- Author Unknown

A Beautiful Man
It's your birthday, you deserve a treat,
You're my grandpa, and you're very sweet.
Whatever you wish or simply desire,
Your kind words, always inspire.
Hope you're not worried, about your age,
You're just turning, another page.
Your journey has been,
an exciting book,
Beautiful memories, through pictures we look.
Today we celebrate, your life that's been full,
Happy moments, naturally you pull.
Most importantly, we're here to share,
A beautiful man, with a heart that is rare.

Beauty of Grandparents
Few can bring the warmth
We can find in their embrace,
And little more is needed to bring love.
Than the smile on their face.
They've a supply of precious stories,
Yet they've time to wipe a tear,
Or give us reasons to make us laugh,
They grow more precious through the years.
I believe that God sent us Grandparents
As our legacy from above,
To share the moments of our life,
As extra measures of His love.

My daddy taught me
My daddy taught me that we all are special
We all have our own faults yet we all still are special.
My daddy taught me to be brave
To feel the fear yet still be brave.
My daddy taught me to make the most of every moment
To make the best of the people you share moments with
To make lots of memories to create a past
In case in the future I am lonely
My daddy taught me to love
And love will comfort me.

Gran's Special Touch
Grandmother, we appreciate you.
Because of you
each day is a little brighter,
the sun shines a little warmer,
foods tastes better
and life is simply sweeter,
You bind us together with love and devotion,
this family you created with such tender loving care.
We want you to know how much you mean
to each and everyone of us,
and, especially that we cherish you
every moment of every day!

Words of Wisdom 
One cannot live another’s life 
Choose their interests or make their decisions Carry their problems or determine their outcome.
Each person has the power of choice 
Interests of theirs are different to ours. Decisions? They know what’s right for them. 
We can pick them up and sometimes not 
in this rest that God knows our future. 
Remember these things sometimes with your children__
They’re on loan to us and make their way
Provide for them a nice environment 
And be the best friend you can.
Janet Vargas  © June  2012


My Son. A man of quiet composure and special strengths. One with values and few words, wisely chosen. A lover of nature and times with friends.


Grandmother

I really feel quite special
That God has chosen you.
To be a person in my life
Who knows me through and through.

The time that we spend talking,
I've always felt you heard...
You've been so good at listening
To each and every word.

And even things I didn't share,
You somehow heard them too.
I think this is a special gift
That God has given you.

So I just want to thank you
For being there for me,
And showing me acceptance
And love so totally.

Walking with Grandpa
I like to walk with Grandpa,
His steps are short like mine.
He doesn't say "Now Hurry Up,"
He always takes his time.
I like to walk with Grandpa,
His eyes see thing like mine do -
Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud,
Half hidden drops of dew.
Most people have to hurry,
They don't stop and see.
I'm glad that God made Grandpa,
Unrushed, and young like me.
~Poem by Thena Smith~



Qualities of a Mum
Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
A mother understands what a child does not say
Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.
A mom's hug lasts long after she lets go.
Mom, when thoughts of you are in our hearts, we are never far from home.
~Authors Unknown


"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow; Don't walk behind me, I may not lead__ Walk beside me, and just be my friend."

Love and Guidance
Your loving granddaughter thinking of you,
We are a team, our bond is like glue.
A few words, to show how I feel,
Straight from my heart, true and so real.
You have always, been there for me,
Supported me, like the roots of a tree.
Sometimes I caused you, worry and aches,
You pushed me to grow, with my mistakes.
Taught me to be honest, truth never mask,
You listen patiently, when questions I ask.
Thank you so much, for loving me,
Your love and guidance, has set me free.

No-one like Grandad
A Grandad is a person who is loving and kind, 
And he often can tell, what's on your mind. 
He's someone who listens, suggests, and defends 
A Grandad can be one, of your very best friends! 
He's proud of your triumphs, but when things go wrong 
A Grandad can be patient and helpful and strong. 
In all that you do, Grandad’s love plays a part 
There's always a place for him deep in your heart
And each year that passes, you're even more glad
More grateful and proud, to call him Grandad.

We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives. Maya Angelou

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it's destination full of hope. Maya Angelou


I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
