Oh the comfort…

After spending this morning  morning with a wonderful friend,  and talking about alot of things,  this quote came to mind that  I had on a plaque in my room as a child.  I could only remember the context, so I tracked it down and here it is..

Oh, the comfort –
The inexpressible comfort of feeling
safe with a person,
Having neither to weight thoughts,
Nor measure words – but pouring them
All right out – just as they are –
Certain that a faithful hand will
Take and sift them –
Keep was is worth keeping –
and with the breath of kindness
Blow the rest away
Dinah Maria Craik (1826-1887) 

 (Taken from her novel, A Life for a Life, published in 1859)

It certainly is a comfort to have friends you can pour out your soul too – and not have to ‘worry’ about things that you probably shouldn’t have said, or maybe how you said something.   So thank-you my wonderful friend for a great chat this morning and those yummy muffins!
