Life Flight

©2011 Susan Noyes Anderson (text only)

There is a time to test our wings...

to strike out on our own.

But those who go the distance

rarely choose to fly alone.

Today I am feeling grateful for friends and family who support and uphold us as
we journey through the ups and downs of life in an imperfect world.
We climb highest and farthest when we are in good company.

Wow! Great pictures to go with your words. I almost felt I was soaring with those birds as I was listening the beautiful John Denver music. Oh, how nice. Hugs

So true. I don't know how we could ever go it alone. Support from friends and family is so nurturing.

Dixie Mom said...

I can't tell you how many times this has applied to my life. I am quite the loner but when I really need the help I have never been alone.
Stunning pictures, btw.
I'm so glad that others have been able to lift and comfort and help you as you have done for so many others.

How true. What would we do without wonderful friends to support us? We are so fortunate to have many of these here in the desert. I am so glad that we moved here.

I have just a few close friends...I've never been one who needed or wanted a posse to hang with! But I know that if needed, a phone call, a shout-out, a request for help would be answered quickly by the many Sisters I've had the privilege of knowing in our little branch and also at my work. It's me who feels that I want to be the doer, the meal taker, the helper, not the one needing it done. I forget that it denys blessings when we don't ask for help. I'm glad you have such a great network of friends and I'm sure you're the best friend to others!

Donna said...

Isn't that the truth??!? I have three close friends who mean the world to me and whom I can hardly picture going through life without! They are my rocks in trouble, confidants in stress, and much fun all the time!! And then there are my hubby and daughter who are my best buds too...yes, I feel blessed!!

Stef said...

Soooooooo true. I'm constantly reminding people that God wants us to help one another out; He doesn't intend for us to go it alone.

Was that John Denver this morning? I have his greatest hits on CD. Barry Manilow too. :)

Terra said...

Grandma Honey said...

I so agree that we climb highest when we are in good company! We were not meant to be on this journey alone.
