an ode to friendships....



















What is it about friendships that make us cry, laugh, love, behave like babies, and make us downright silly? I know for myself, that I treasure good friendships. Why are true, meaningful friends so hard to find?





Oh, I have a lot of friends, but true friends, those that truly, and I mean truly care about me, and what goes on with even the mundane little things in life, I can count on one hand.





I've lost good friendships over silly things. I've seen friends behave like i don't even know who they really are, and wonder what is it that I first saw in them.





Who wouldn't want a true, real friendship?





I've come to know some pretty wonderful friends through this blog, and you are so inspiring, you are, and you.





Friendships. Here is to a new year of getting to know you better.

Your words ring so true...I think true friendships are a bit like gems; so precious & meant to be treasured:) In this wonderful blogland, it's nice "knowing" friends like you!

A beautiful post and great things to think about in the new year. True friends are rare - I feel lucky to have "met" so many lovely bloggers since I'm not sure my friends locally really understand the things I like and I think the other bloggers I've met do. Love the photos! Have a great New Year in 2009!!

Beautiful post!

It's the truth. I'm blessed to have a group of "peeps" I know I can count on and they can count on me. If you have a handful of friends like that you are truly blessed.

As for the photographs and the blog you linked I've been a fan of hers since I first found her on Etsy. They are so beautiful they make me weep.

Happy New Year!
Gail
