|Friends (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
Yesterday I drove north of my daughter's to visit a friend I have known for over 40 years. She is a widow now having lost her husband last year but she has her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren living close by. My visits with Joan are always like "coming home"! I think she probably knows me better than I know myself! My visits with her are always special.
I believe the saying, "There are friends for a reason, a season and a lifetime." I have had some great friends in my life but the friendships don't always last and when they don't I've found it's best to NOT try to resurrect them. I have tried but it's not the same. Things change, people change, circumstances change.
My favorite friends are the "low maintenance" friends! Now that might sound kinda selfish but I have had some high maintenance friends and they are exhausting! Do you know what I mean?!!!
I currently have some wonderful "low maintenance" friends and am so thankful for each and every one. And a side benefit of blogging has been "meeting" other bloggers and becoming friends--kinda like pen pals of old!
Another favorite saying about friends is...
"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
The A to Z Challenge Bloggers take Sundays off because there are only 26 letters in the alphabet and there are 30 days in April so the letter G will be on Monday. However, I am hoping to make it back for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat tomorrow night!
I hope you, too, have friends who make your life just a little better each day! Have a great day!
