Even though it's not summer yet it sure has felt like it these last few days. The flip flops are on, the shorts are out and the sunscreen is slathered on my skin. I can't believe a mere month ago it was still quite chilly and my toque was always within reach. Now it's 20 degrees and hot.
I spent my day today relaxing after a wonderful weekend with friends. I have been so blessed in this life, meeting so many special people and having them be a part of this journey we call life. One of the things I have appreciated most about living in many places has been the opportunity to get to know so many different people and personalities.
Everyone in this life has something to offer, whether it's knowledge, experience or a different point of view. I love to learn from others and listen to what they have to say. It enriches my life in so many ways. And the thing about immersing yourself in great friendship's is the ability to reach out to one another and share experiences. We all have different passions and opinions but we also share similarities and happenings.
I also feel great friendships are an inspirations. A good friend always wants the best for you and will provide insight and a different point view that can make you see another path for yourself that you wouldn't have even dreamed of.
The friends that have come in to my life have been all these things for me. From childhood friends, to High School, Work and Neighbours the people in my life mean the world to me. And what makes it even better is watching my friends children and my children form bonds with one another that will always be a part of their lives, whether or not they lose touch later in life. They will always remember jumping on the trampoline when its dark, or sharing popcorn in the bed watching a movie, and whispering secrets to each other when the lights or out.
As my life journey's on I look forward to the new bonds I will make and the interesting individuals that will become a part of and enrich my life. I hope that my life will be an inspiration to my friends and that they know no matter what time of the day, or whatever they need I will always be there. Because that's what friends are for.
