Couldn't have put it better myself. I too was always a pleaser, wanting to be liked by everyone. it took a long time for me to figure out that I couldn't do it without compromising my own integrity and who I was. I like the saying that friends come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Some friends are there to help you through certain events and then, when that is over, they move on to help someone else where their particular skills are needed. They are no less friends than those for a lifetime and I think of them often, but life moves on and so must they. The friends for a lifetime are the keepers, the ones who are there through thick and thin, you just know they are going to be there for you. You had a very wise grandmother and I feel she has passed that wisdom on to another very wise woman.


Wow that was an amazing post. I read so many truths and similarities in there. Very wise words indeed. I wish I was closer and we could 'grow' our friendship more. Hx


Sooo very true what you say Trina. Love your quote.


Yes - an amazing post Trina - so well described and a beautiful photo of you and your Nana. All the best for 2013


Wow, Trina. I can so relate to that. Brings tears to my eyes reading that post. The true friends I have - I can talk to them like we saw each other yesterday yet sometimes it can be years since we actually saw each other, but keep in touch by email and Christmas newsletters. And, like you, one of those true friends is my partner.

You come up with some really awesomely profound posts lady - really thought provoking stuff. Well done you!


great post!!!

friends are like seasons....some come and go...others are there through thick and thin!!!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx to you


So true...


So very true. Sometimes, it just takes us longer to realise that it's quality, not quantity that counts.I read somewhere that to have a friend, you need to be a friend.

Will feltétlenül gyere vissza többet e. Great work.Good munka, csodálatos blog ... igazán élvezni, és hozzáadta az én szociális könyvjelzőket. Eltartás megjelöl a jó munka
