Contributions for this week’s theme on close friends have been as diverse
and interesting as last week. Again, they are worthy of a visit.
Do pop over and have a read.
Jane Basil from Making it Write joined us this week with a heartwarming story about reconnecting with a primary school friend.
Pamela Scanepa popped in and shared an equally heartwarming story about her faithful fourlegged friend.
Linda from Spiritual Dragonfly – wrote about a truly special person, her soul mate, sharing a delightful photo and a song by Dan Seals: One Friend
Calen of Impromptu Promptlings tells of her inner sanctum of close friends, some of whom she claims could blackmail her with what they know! I’m sure no close friend would ever commit such a heinous act.
Lori from As Fates Would Have It writes about how a special group of close friends enriches her life, each in their own unique ways
Jacqueline Oby Ikocha from A cooking pot and twisted tales comments that
‘I have so many lovely friends, childhood and otherwise, but moving around a lot and now to the UAE has created a gap. We chat on BBM and online but it’s just never the same thing.’
I also want to share a quote from one of Jacqueline’s other posts that fits so well with this week’s theme:
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Joy from A Joy of Health Nutrition and Beauty commented “ the relationship between myself and my daughter is better than the one I have with my own mother”
And last but not least, here is my contribution in which I use the metaphor of flowers to describe close friends –
The Gift of Friends
Thank you to everyone for taking part, sharing your views,
comments and stories with us.
