"......and I am in your debt."


Mick there is no debt among friends for as you receive today you will give tommorow. Friendship even among people who will never meet is like the vast tide that touches every shore in the world, it ebbs and flows with the pull of life but when friends are needed they are there.

A fragile thread of strength

Alone I am one
A fragile thread
broken and battered
by the trials of life.
I feel darkness suround me
and know I cannot go on.

Then out of the darkness
A hand stretches to me
The hand of a loved one
The hand of a neighbour
The hand of someone I may never know
And as it touches me
I am no loger alone.

Their faith may be my faith
their faith may be something very different
The may profess no faith save in life itself.
Yet each day their touch of prayer
their touch of thoughts and wishes
Strengthen me

I am not one
no longer a single fragile thread
For I am woven in
with all the other fragile threads
Together we are strong as a firemans blanket
Together we are a warm blanket
that can cover the world.
