  1. You said it so wonderfully, Heather. I agree with you when you say best friends pick up where you’ve left, like it was just yesterday we were chatting. I feel that way with a lot of people in the blog world, lol. I also think best friends are the friends where you can poke fun at each other and both of you know the other does not mean any harm. All in good fun. Some of my friends are fond of calling me names, names that you’d think are insulting – like B**** and, well, you get the idea πŸ˜› But it takes a while to get to that level of friendship.

    • Thanks, Mabel. Lucky people are able to pick up where you left off if you’re like me and have vanished off the blogosphere for a couple of months! πŸ˜‰
      And, oh yes, the mutually insulting friendship. I’m lucky enough to have one of those. The more we call each other names, the more we love each other really. πŸ™‚


  2. I love this, H. It reminds me that I’ve been very blessed with friends, near and far (and even those I’ve never met ;-). I do have those friends, though, that I can snort-laugh with, talk forever, and never feel uncomfortable to be around. My roommate and I have a special friendship because of our weird sense of humor. I love that we can talk stupid and neither of us looks at the other like some kind of weirdo because that would just be calling the kettle black.

  3. I only have few but true friends, who don’t take advantage of me 😚 I treasure them alot because they are hard to find 😚😊 though we don’t see and talk everyday, we know that we wont grow apart because the love of God binds our hearts ❀ and that’s the true essence of friendship πŸ‘­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ simple yet so sweet 😚☺

    • I’ve actually never quite managed to be the ‘best friend’ for anyone. I’ve been close friends with a number of people that I would consider MY best friends but it’s never really be reciprocal. I think that makes me the luckier one in the long run.

  4. Has that kitten in the photo really got it’s paw across the other one’s shoulders, or am I seeing things, H? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    Do you have a marathon coming up? Presume that’s the reason for running up hills? No pulling muscles- you hear me!

    • I’m well, Jo. Thanks for checking. πŸ™‚ I’ve been getting a lot of teaching work which is tending to take all my brain power. Add to that training for a marathon, lots of singing and being taxi to three growing sons and there’s not much energy left either. But there’s a long list of posts I want to write in my head so I hope I’ll get them out one day. πŸ™‚
