30 days of thankfulness- day 6.

Today I am thankful for friendship.

Where would we be without our BFF, lovely friends you see only occasionally but immediately pick up where you last left off, and those everyday friends who are always around for a quick chat, a hug when you need one or a good belly laugh when the mood is silly.

I'd be completely lost without mine! My boys would be lost without theirs too.

I have always been lucky when it comes to special people who come into my life just when I seem to need them. Sometimes they come and go, but remain a precious memory. Sometimes they become a friend for life. Sometimes you never even get to see them for many, many (maybe even many, many, many) years but the connection remains strong and messages flow with love and encouragement- oh the joys of modern technology and I do so value a very precious card or letter in the mail.

I always know when I have met a kindred spirit and sometimes I can't believe how quickly that connection is formed. I can recall meeting people for the very first time and thinking "we'll be such great friends" and sure enough they are.


I am so thankful for those meetings with good friends when you end up light headed because the conversation never stopped. I am thankful for the kind and generous words friends share to give you the much needed boost to get you through the next phase. I love the chance to catch up with a group of lovely friends where too much tea and cake is consumed and several conversations are running at the same time. I treasure that very special connection where words are not even needed, just thinking of that friend makes you smile and know that everything will be OK.

I am so, so fortunate to have all of these things in my life. I am thankful.

Thank you my friends for all of your kind and generous comments each day. Your thoughtful words bring tears of gratitude to my eyes every day (you probably already know that I am a bit of a sook).

I hope you can take a moment to think about what made you feel thankful today and make sure you take the time to savour it- it will make you smile and smiling is my favourite!!
