Ya gotta have friends…

Friendship is one of life’s greatest rewards. When moving, there is frequently a shift. Some people stay in our lives regardless of where we are and for some, the distance proves to be too much. When someone has been part of our life, they will always be a part in memory if not more. Yet the space that was once occupied by the “old crowd” is available for new faces, arms, hands, smiles and different perspectives.  Wherever you go in life, there are wonderful people who, if you are open to them, will walk along side you. Despite my still stumbling French, I am indeed a most fortunate person to have found so many friends. Let me introduce you to a few!

  open as

  mon coeur

  armed with smiles

  eyes wide open

  sincère mais espiègle

  an invitation to all

seem to overflow

yet yielding to welcome

    1. Absolutely Carly. But as we both know, sometimes the old friends can’t always be with us for whatever reason. It doesn’t diminish the relationships of the past but adds to who we will be.
      I have had people come into my life for very short times but we have learned from each other. Some I still communicate with and some are no longer with us. xoxo

    1. Your generosity in nominating me for awards is appreciated. However, your continued participation in this blog is the award I valued most. Merci!

      bisous et calins, léa
