I’ve been offline a bit for the last two weeks. A trip to Las Vegas totally left me jet lagged and with a cold that just wouldn’t quit. For the first time since I started this blog in early 2018 I didn’t have any posts completed to post. Hopefully you forgive my absence and come back for more.
The Month of March is an odd one for me. It reminds me of all the years we spent travelling to an annual convention. March was always filled with travel, friends, laughter and a little bit of sadness. 15 years ago this month, we lost my Grampy. Forever in my heart, I always look back and remember the good times, and feel a twinge of sadness for the things he missed. But, really March reminds me that friendship is an amazing gift in my life. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting amazing people in my life. Some are part of my day to day routine, others I can go months or sometimes even years and not see, and pick up right where we left off. I cherish these friendships. The hard part of life is when those friendships change or evolve. Which is bound to happen. Sometimes it’s hard to follow the same journey as your friends and sometimes you just have to let go, as much as it might hurt. Sometimes if you are lucky, life pulls you back together at some point and you can rebuild or rekindle friendship.
But this post is about celebrating friendships. Without them my life would be devoid of true joy. Heck, I even met my husband because of a friendship. It’s a foundation for an amazing life. Building friendships, feeding them with love, trust and honesty, they will grow into a beautiful tapestry of your life. Don’t shy away from meeting new people, don’t close yourself off from the gifts that friendship with others can bring. When you are at your lowest, they will be there to help you get back up. When you are in euphoric bliss, they will be there to celebrate your happiness. When you find friendship put the work in to keep it. I promise it’s worth it.
