“A friend is one who knows you, and loves you just the same.” ~ 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. 😉
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
Wonderful friends. Beautiful pics of you, hubs and your children!
Thanks so much, ppd. 😉
Very heartwarming picture. I hope I and my couple will long last as far as you…
Thanks so much for your visit, Albadr. I hope so too. 😉
Lovely pictures and words to go with it!
Thanks so much for the visit. 😉
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…!
Thanks, adee. I guess we are two of the lucky ones. 😉
The footnotes of Albert Camus, inspire me 😛 Thank you for visiting my blog, regards
Glad you liked that quote. It’s very easy to remember too. 😉

That’s great, optie. Congrats to you and OH. 😉
I love it. Best friends with your hubby. Great! That the way to do it 🙂 Nice pictures.

What is marriage without friendship anyway?
I couldn’t begin to imagine, mf. 😉
Hi AD, lovely looking family – especially you 😉
Hehehe 😉 Flattery will get you everywhere, Chris.

Thanks so much for the pingback, Francine. 😉
Very nice post,my friend 🙂
Thanks, DC. 😉
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!
Thanks, TRS. This challenge really made me realise that too. 😉
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.
Thanks so much. Yes it is interesting, and how it should be. Love my VBF to bits. 😉
Yes friends do come and go, but that’s life hey?!
I guess it is, SC. You win some, you lose some. 😉
Love the way you focused on the different friendships in your life. Friendships do start with family.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks, Francine. I agree with you.
They say that we only have six lifelong friends, once we’ve made them.
That’s very true, Tilly. It’s quality, not quantity that counts.
