A Friend Indeed Is A Wonderful Thing!

Do you have an address book full of friends, a Christmas card list as long as your arm or a Facebook account full of followers?

My answer to all of these questions is no.

At the ripe old age of, nearly, 46, I can count on the fingers of one hand the good friends, apart from my husband who it goes WITHOUT saying is my very best friend in the world, I have made and kept over the years.

I suppose I am guilty of something, as are many other people I am sure, which is out of sight out of mind. Due to moving around the country and travelling at different times in your life you do lose touch with some people, but we get wrapped up in our own lives and seem to find less time for other people.

However, the absolute joy of meeting somebody new and knowing immediately that you have so much in common through opinions, interests and ideals that you are sure to stay friends through thick and thin is quite remarkable.


This happens very rarely but when it does it makes your heart jump! Your head can't help racing with all the wonderful things you know you can share, talk about, be inspired by and enjoy together. I am very lucky that I have recently met such a person and when you are older and it happens it is indeed a wonderful thing!

Have you ever made a friend like this when you were a bit more than a teenager? I would love to hear your comments about your experiences.


  1. This is a beautiful post and really made me smile. You are such a warm hearted person, very kind and genuine. We are two peas in a pod and I am so happy to know you and call you my friend. xXx

  2. Yes, I agree - it is lovely to meet someone new that becomes a truely treasured friend from the beginning. You are very lucky Louise! x

  3. It's harder to make REALLY good friends as we get old, (in my opinion). But when I found the Susan Branch blog, I felt like I have FINALLY found women who get me....and then I found you thru her.


I am so grateful if you have the time to comment and I will always do my best to respond.x
