“Friends Are Cushions and Gifts from God” by Joan Y. Edwards

Your circle of friends are gifts from God. They help soften and cushion your actions and reactions to your life’s journey in good times and times that are sad.

Sometimes when I talk to friends, they listen and help me cope with a situation that is bothering me.

When I get worried about someone or something in life, I place my hand on a soft cushion and remember that God is taking care of the person or the thing that has upset me. I can let it go and rest.

Please leave a comment. Let me know how you handle the things you worry about.

  1. Joan, this post reminds me of why I like social networks. So often support comes from the least likely places. We need that affirmation when, frankly, there is so much bad, unthinkable behavior across the world.

  2. Dear Carolyn,
    Thank you for writing. You are right. We are lucky when we find affirmation from social media and in person. I am a very lucky lady. I have friends like you and others and family to be my soft cushions in my life. I am honored to be your friend.

    Love you,
    Never Give Up
