Weekly photo challenge “Friendship.”

“A friend is one who knows you, and loves you just the same.”Β  ~ Elbert Hubbard

The daily post photo challenge, is “Friendship,” so I decided to put up a few photos of me with my best friends.

Hubby and I are still the best of friends, even after over 40 years of marriage. This pic was taken on our 40th anniversary.

I’m so fortunate that both my children are really good friends to me. I sometimes hear of families where the children become estranged from their parents. This is really sad, and I just can’t imagine what this must be like, as my daughter and I get on so well together.

and my son and I are also very close, even though we live so far apart most of the time.

I’m sure that every woman needs a BEST friend, and here am I with mine at her 60th birthday party. We’ve been friends for only ten years, but it seems like a lifetime. She is like a second sister to me. πŸ˜‰

I know that over the course of our lives, friends come and go, and this has also happened to me. When I think back to friends I’ve had over the years, I realise that certain friends are sent for a particular time in one’s life. I know that those I’ve had and somehow drifted apart from, will always be in my heart, even though they are no longer in my every day life. They are all a beautiful part of life’s tapestry that we constantly weave whilst we are here on this earth.

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” Albert Camus

  1. I am so happy to hear your marriage has lasted so long, AD. Nowadays it is really an exception to the rule! I agree friends are wonderful and it make life so much easier to have them around…!

  5. What a lovely post on friendship – amazing how we don’t need a ton of friends at any one time – just those few that meet the moment – and for whom we can do the same!

  6. Interesting – and lovely – that for so many of us, our first thought about this topic is our partner. And that we all accept friends come and go. Nice post, love that first pic though.

  7. Love the way you focused on the different friendships in your life. Friendships do start with family.
