My BFF lives a little way away, and I don't get to see her anywhere near as much as I'd like. We have the excuse of distance and babies, and make up for it with sleepovers when we can. I miss her a lot, and I cherish the time we spend together. She's my other sister and I can't imagine my life without her in it.
This week I caught up with a couple of people who I've not seen in too long. And without the excuse of distance either. Just busy lives, the endless interuption of children being sick and not wanting to share that love around, the unexpected interruptions of life.
But here's the great thing about some friendships. Even when time or distance separate us, we can pick up like it was just yesterday we last caught up. Time apart doesn't change the strength or feeling of the friendship. And time spent together is treasured even more.
I am so grateful for the love and support of my friends, and I know I am blessed to have these people in my life.
Speaking of friends, I'm lucky enough to count a few brilliant bloggers amongst my real-life friends. I thought I'd share some of their blogs with you so you can check out for yourselves why I love them so much. I think I'll try and add another few each week, having just realised how many talented writers I get to spend my time with! And I'm grateful for all of them... their written words and their real-life friendship.
Bogue Living - as a card carrying, bought the t-shirt bogan I <3 this blog so much. It tickles all my tickly spots. And the Big M is extremely awesome herself. On top of that she has ridiculously gorgeous little bogue children too.
Yay for Home - Shae is the creator of the Things I Know linky that I love on Fridays. She blogs about life with her three beautiful girls and is the crunchiest of my little crunchy crew. <3 her. Word.
Picklebums - Kate Pickle blogs about life on the Pickle farm with her twin daughters and her smaller boys. She is extremely clever, being a Kate with two girls and two boys ;p She is also an incredibly talented blog fancy-upperer and one of the most generous and genuine people you could ever have the pleasure of reading.
What (or who) are you feeling thankful for this week?
