Laura makes ASCII art, using MS Notepad. (Since 1998). She is currently exploring adding colour to the plain text to make postcards.

Friendship is Something to be Thankful For

It's the Thought that Counts in Thank You

The lyrics behind 'The Golden Girls' theme song always bothered me. I didn't watch the show often, maybe that was part of the reason.

Thank you for being a friend - is great. It's the part about bringing the biggest gift. What does friendship have to do with gifts, especially big gifts. As if friendship is measured in that way.

Some people do see things in a monetary value sort of way. I've learned not to give handmade gifts any more - or very rarely. For all that is put into the making, the love you put into each stitch and the attention given to details is only seen by yourself.

Often, it's the thought that counts, in a very literal way. You can give someone a knickknack you bought for a dollar and they see beyond the gift to the thought behind it. That's what really matters. The communication of that thanks you were feeling at the time.

I've posted this ASCII art collection for anyone who would like to send a Thank You to friends and family, co-workers and assorted others. So many people come into our lives and give us something to be thankful for.

Thank Your for Being a Friend

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant.

And if you through a party
Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend.

      Thank you. I'll add more as I find them (or make them myself). I like them to be out and seen by people. Funny to think it's been around as long as it has and yet so many people have never heard of it. ASCII art used to be seen a lot more often.

      What a delightful sharing of your idea. Those patterns are beautifully complicated!
