Thankful Thoughts - January 14, 2017


I am thankful for friends I can be real with and who are real with me.  Not every day can be a great one, we celebrate those, but we also need to be able to share the times that are hard, the times we need someone to listen and care.  I value real relationships and the trust that fuels them.

    1. Having a friend you can reach out to when you are struggling makes all the difference Mimi, it gives us hope and reminds us that we are loved.

  3. I so agree, but it's worth remembering that sadly some folk have no friends. Fortunately I do!

    1. This is sadly very true, Keith. I know some who would love to have a friend or two, and would make a good friend themselves, but never seem able to find the right friendship connection. It makes me feel bad for them. A friend makes life so much better!

    1. I have been without any real friends more than a few times in my life, Jo-Anne. I think that's why I love blogging so much, I have made good friends via the Internet and we support each other. It seems easier to find like-minded people here than next door. XOXO

  5. To find someone who's interested in knowing the real you, and visa versa.... That's a real friend and and it's priceless.

    1. You are so right, casual acquaintances are fun, as are social friends to do things with, but real friends that genuinely care about you and whom you allow to know your dark times as well as your bright ones, they are indeed pricless!

  6. Amen! I like people who keep it real. Some of my friends rather live in a little bubble they have constructed and that's a bit difficult some times, but I love them anyway and we work towards understanding one another. But mostly there's just coffee and chatting, and that's fine by me. :)

    1. The older I get, the more I want to share my time with friends I can be real with. Sometimes it takes time for that closeness and trust to develop, and that's ok, but some people are bricked in behind walls, and that is very difficult to reach or share with. I am sure you are a good and caring friend.
