Is this the cutest photo or what???
‘Take it easy Mitz….it’s only a picture’, LOL….
First of all, a big ‘thank you’ to my blog pal Karen over at: Pisces Place for sharing this pic. of two of her closest friends, Heidi and Mattie. To me, the first thing that came to mind when I looked at this photo was, ‘best buds’ and ‘complete bliss’ . I liked it so much, it’s my screensaver of the week.
Speaking of friends, we all need them, don’t we? The real, ‘true blue’, loyal, supportive, sympathetic, always there when you need them... type of friends.
I must admit, there have been times in my life when ‘quality’ friends have been in short supply. People move to another place or pass on, interests change, disagreements and bad experiences sometimes can’t be mended, people grow apart …..
Stephen King has said that ‘we never have friends again, like the ones we had in high school’. On that I can agree.
Being a teenager was a marvelous experience for me, and yes, I enjoyed the company of many amazing friends with all the attributes that I’ve listed above. Our little group (9-10 strong) were inseparable and invincible (or so we thought!!!). We did most things together, dressed the same, aspired to many of the same dreams, were there to share the laughter and the tears…It was a special time and to this day, some of the best memories that I have to look back on. Even then, I knew, these were special people and the good times we shared, the carefree days of youth, would be impossible to recapture. What are your high school memories? Was this a good time or difficult for you, as it is for so many people?
We need good people/friends in our life and for so many reasons. People who are there for us and of course, vice versa. People we can totally trust. To, ‘let down our hair with’ to be ourselves, to be real.
Having good friends even impacts our health. One of my new blog buddies Michelle, has written an excellent article on the topic of health and friendship, over at her brand new blog, Be Well with Michelle .
