The Magic of Friendship

To me, friendship is magic. It can instantly change the way you are feeling and the way that others around you feel too.

I am not talking about casual friendships, I am talking about the close bonds of best friends. The friends that you can tell anything and they will never judge you, the ones that you laugh with (and at if they do something silly), the ones that will be there for you at your lowest ebb.

This last year has been awful for me. Finding out my dad had a cancerous brain tumor, then him dying was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. My two friends were there for me the whole time, even when they had their own troubles, they held me up.

I felt so helpless for so long, but they helped me get stronger. From looking after the kids when I took dad to appointments, coming with me to see dad when things got really hard and even doing my house work when I was too low to even think about it.

But I think the best thing they did was to talk to me like they normally would. They were sympathetic of course, but they didn’t make me feel like a pity case. They carried on with the jokes we make to one another and kept me doing the things I love and just generally made my life as easy as they could.

I would do the same for them without a second thought (well maybe not the housework bit lol). Their friendship lifted me up and kept me going when I needed it, I hate to think of the mess I would be in without them.

This photo was taken this morning at our local coffee house where we spend far too much of our time. I told them I was going to write this post and include the picture ( I’m not sure if they were pleased about that bit lol). To me they are the best friends that anyone could ask for.

People like them are why friendship is magical. They can always lift my mood and make me smile and they stick around when times are tough too.

Go hug your best friend, you never know they might just need it.

Take care everyone.
