‘A friend is someone who helps you up when you’re down, and if they can’t, they lay down beside you and listen’ – Winnie the Pooh
It’s been a while since I did a friendship post so today I wanted to celebrate my amazing friends! Life isn’t always easy and, like everyone else, I have my good days and those that are not so good. There have been quite a few of those not so good ones recently but my friends have rallied round, kept my spirits up, provided practical and emotional support and been truly incredible. I hope that everyone reading this has got friends (and/or family of course) who do the same for them. Enjoy the quotes!

‘It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them’ – Ralph Waldo Emerson
‘Friends are those crazy people who keep coming back, in spite of being exposed to the real you’ – Richelle E Goodrich

I hope you love these quotes as much as I do and can relate to them. Before I finish, I thought this one was funny although I truly hope this never happens to anyone!!
‘Best friends are those who don’t say anything when you show up at their door with a dead body. They just grab a shovel and follow you!’
For our tiny tweak this week, is there someone you haven’t checked in with for a while? Someone you’ve been meaning to call but haven’t got around to it? If we haven’t spoken to someone for a while, we cannot know what they might be dealing with so maybe today is the day we could check in and make sure they are OK. We all need friends and sometimes just a quick message to say “Hi, how are you?” could make all the difference to someone. It’s also really important to be our own best friend and treat ourselves as kindly as we would treat someone else.
And to finish, a friendship quote I’d never heard before but think is lovely:
‘A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words’ – C.S. Lewis
Until next time xx
