That's What Friends Are For



I couldn't resist posting the video of the cute turtle and puppy. I totally identify some days with Hope the dog and other days, Carl, the turtle.

There are those days, (like today) where I felt melancholy and like I could cry over a squished loaf of bread. In that case, I could be Hope in a heartbeat, needing a lift or a ride. Those are those times when I'm grateful for friends to carry me through or maybe not necessarily carry me but to hold my hand and not let go.

Then, there are those days when I just know that someone needs me to be Carl the turtle. Sometimes, although not asked, I know that I am needed to lift up or encourage. Those are the days when even though I am slow, like Carl, I'm able and ready.

Which one do you identify with the most? Carl the turtle or Hope the dog?

That is so funny! Like you, I have moments of being both of them.

too funny....lately I'm moving as slow as a turtle!

I'm slow like the turtle; I like to ride like the dog. I'm helpful like the turtle. I can be lazy like the dog.

I think I'm shaped more like the turtle!

It is funny you should post about this because you helped cheer up some broken hearts with your comment over on my blog about Jake's passing. Your words were so kind and reassuring and my friend Elizabeth and I thank you so much for caring.

The blog world is full of kind people like you. Thank you.

Most of the time I'm a Carl tryin' to lift others up and lessen their load but every once in a while I have a moment or day I need a hand up. I count on my christian friends for that.

God bless ya and have a marvelous day sweetie!!!!

That is so cute. I wonder if Carl actually likes it? How do you know when a turtle is enjoying something?

Anyway...I tend to keep my own feelings and needs to myself and not let others help me out too often. I'd rather be the one helping them.

Oh I can so relate to being Carl the Turtle most days, but mostly it's my own fault. Love this and thanks so much for sharing.

I'm a turtle to some friends and a dog to others! But most of the time, I'm the turtle.

Love the video, Simone. Thanks for sharing this.

Syrone said...

That's so cute! Obviously, the dog is fine with the slow paced turtle. That's a true bud for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by my daughter's blog yesterday and encouraging her - she was so blue. I talked with her last night and she was thrilled by the comments she rec'd. Things were looking up as Gracie's best friend, Liz, got to come to the party AND spend the night. Gracie was thrilled!
