Last week was a bit crazy…work was busy, which is a good thing right… maybe I should consider adding it to my weekly thankfuls, maybe that thankful is in my heart quietly.
I love what Piglet says to Winnie such a good friendship, strong and fragile at the same time.
Did you know that friendships are strictly a voluntary relationship? It is on the lowest scale of relationships and listed as the following; romantic partners, parents, siblings, children and friends.
Friendship is entered by choice; it lacks formal structure, which means I wouldn’t or could not speak to my husband for weeks or months. Yet with friends, no questions asked I can go months, weeks and dare I say years without speaking to any of them, then one day the phone rings and my friend is on the other end of the phone and poof as if no time passed we are talking, laughing, caring and making plans to see one another.
By the end of my crazy week, I was thinking of my friends …I was thinking about them for a number of reasons; sometime in the past two weeks someone asked me if I make friends easily – and truthfully I don't, and this revelation, which I have always known, hit me hard. However, a fact is a fact; therefore, it began my obsession to learn about friendship.
I’m cautious when I make friends, yet when I am welcomed and feel the love – I’m your friend forever….yet, even then I still leave some space between my friends and me.
I don’t have many friends and consider only a handful to be my close friends. Therefore, without mentioning names here are my ten thankfuls.
Friends if you are reading this post I am certain you’ll know whom each thankful belongs to.
One -Thank you for stealing me; and Nicky too…
