Inspiration Wednesday

Today I am inspired by my friends.  Friends are a gift from God that I fully believe help us keep our sanity. Today a friend and I went to lunch together and she proved that a true friend wants to spend time with you even if your 2 year old and 5 year old are along for the ride.  Ummmm if you don't know what its like to go out to eat with a 2 year old and 5 year old then you might not appreciate just what a good friend she is, trust me she rocks!!!! Especially since i got to go to the salad bar without a child in tow, yep she ROCKS!   We had a great time laughing, talking, and just enjoying being out of the house while trying to keep a close eye and firm parental hand on my progeny.

So in keeping with that I went and found a few, okay several lovely thoughts on just what friendship can mean.  Through ups and downs, bad and good, sick and well times friends are the balm that helps soothe our hurting hearts.  So in honor of all my lovely friends in all the different aspects and areas of my life I dedicate this post to you.

A friend is someone who brings you joy.  Who you can laugh with and at and still be close, if not closer than ever.  Laughter is the best medicine and great friends are the best doctors!

A true friend will accept you just as you are faults and all. 

Some friends know you as well as you know yourself, maybe better, they can even read your mind!

There are those friends that no matter how much time you have together or how much you talk and share it is never enough.

In order to have great friends though, you must be a friend yourself.

Unfortunately not all friendships are meant to be lifelong.  Cherish them while they last, and learn something about yourself as well as from the fleeting friend.

 I have to say, I believe that to me, this would be one of the greatest compliments I would ever be privileged enough to receive.

I hope your life is filled with friendships of all varieties, and if you are a friend of mine "I love you!" (especially if you don't mind when my kids tag along once in a while...ha ha)

Have a great day and God Bless!
