Dear Best Friend

"A friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself."
-Jim Morrison

"A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are."

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."

"I wonder what Piglet is doing," thought Pooh.
"I wish I was there doing it, too."
-Winnie the Pooh

A best friend is someone you can always have the greatest of times with, even if you're doing nothing at all. 
Don't ever take good friends for granted and never take the time you have with them for granted either.

PRECIOUS PRECIOUS FRIEND!!!!! I saw the title for this new post up on my blog list of friends ALL WEEK LONG, BUT I WAS UNABLE TO LEAVE A COMMENT!!!! Oh dearest, I am so glad to finally see it and that you came to visit me!!! I have missed you so much...hmmmmm....that must be another SYMPTOM of friendship: WHEN YOU MISS SOMEONE'S PRESENCE!!!! What a lovely post with all the colors of sunshine and poppies! Have you had trouble getting in to blogger? Gigi left a comment on my last post saying she could not get in either. MY SUMMER VACATION is about to start after next week! School will be out soon and I am so excited. I WANT TO GO TO THE SOUTH OF FRANCE! BIG HUGS TO YOU DEAREST and have a warmer, sunny weekend!!! Anita

Teeeheee! I am back again for I saw that you left me a comment about FRANCE! Oh yes dearest.....talk about romance, taste, beauty, earthly pleasures....the SOUTH of France is a palate of COLORS like no where else...you would love it there and please think about going there with SOMEONE YOU LOVE!!!!! Enjoy Anita


This post touched me so much. It's oh so true. Never take them for granted. My two best friends both passed away within the past two years and the loss is indescribable. I cherish each and ever one of my friendships and relationships.

Beautiful post, sweetie. Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Hello Shawna Dear,
OH, AGAIN, I have missed so much...YOUR Paris post was spectacular! That was a whole lot of fun, but I had SO MUCH going on that day, that I didn't get a chance to visit ALL those lovely ladies on this wonderful tour.
...and Yes... a best friend is worth SO VERY much. I am blessed with many acquaintances, a handful kindreds, but only a few dear BFFs
They are truly rare and should be cherished. This is a perfect post girlfriend...thanks for popping by, you always make me smile... xoxo Rosie

This is really a lovely post Shawna! I miss my best friends so much. It's really hard to forge new relationships in a foreign country and at my age nearing 40 it just gets harder. I do deeply cherish my friendships! You sound like a wonderful friend.

And thanks for leaving such encouraging words on my post. I am frightened, but I'm pushed by the fact that there are very few options for me, so I guess if I did have a job that paid well, then I probably wouldn't be making the changes that I am making now. Also, I never believed in myself until my husband started encouraging me, and then I began to believe. I never had someone in my corner until now and it makes a huge difference. I hope that you have that or will have that in your future too to make the change!

p.s. I think your blog is a part of that what makes you happy and others like myself! Thank you!

A big big hug to you! xoxo Reese

Poppie Girl, Hello :) I feel like such a bad bloggie friend! I am so far behind on blogging and catching up! My Summer is going full force :)
I am so sorry your best friend is moving away :( This post is so sweet and I LOVE all the images!
I know how you feel, my best girlfriend moved away years ago and my other bff ( he he my love) I am missing something terrible!

Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart. ~Kay Knudsen

I will be back tonight. I have to go to work! I try to get on the computer in little spurts!
Love you lots Poppie Girl!
