Good Words…On Friendship

good words on friends(image courtesy of Stuart Miles at by me; quote found here)

This is about the truest quote on friendship I’ve ever read. Last week I lost a very very special friend and even now I really can’t imagine that our little world together has come to an end. I won’t have the joy of experiencing him any longer and I won’t have any more moments with him, just memories of him…. gawsh friends, it makes me so so so sad.

But out of that, as cliché as it sounds, it really made me think of all my friends and family and how precious all those little worlds are and how thankful I am for each and everyone of them. It also made me more passionate about living my life in a way that would make him really grateful he knew me, like I’m grateful I knew him.

So remember dear friends that the people in your life that enrich your life and make you laugh, cry, dance, sing, drink and believe in yourself are gifts…treasure the worlds they bring.

Personal Note: To Cat, Winx, Shari & Fajr who pulled me out of a particularly hard time and to Anika who was there when I heard the devastating news-thank you, I love you.

To my honey boo, thanks for letting me be sad and helping me feel happy. You’re so great.

    Dear J, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Wish I could have given you a big hug, I lost one of my best friends several year ago in a car accident, it’s still a weird feeling, but try to remember how much fun we had together and loads of laughter and advice he gave me. Life is too short to not take time out to appreciate friends and family. Miss you … call or mail if you need to. Much love, Mads. xx

    Oh my goodness friend, I am so sorry to hear of this. As you know, I lost my godmother last week, and her passing left me with some of the same sentiments. Her death reminded me to value those in my life more and make sure they know I love them. I LOVE YOU friend! You know you can call me anytime you need to talk. In this difficult time, I encourage you to find comfort in the wonderful memories you and your friend shared.

    I’m really sorry to hear about your loss. I think we should all appreciate the things we have in life a little more. Not just our friends and family but things like the luxury of where we live, our jobs, how we can just access information so easily. I was re-listening to a podcast by Tony Robbins recently that really encourages this and you feel so much better about things as we can get bogged down in just living our lives and forget about appreciating the beauty all around us.
