It doesn’t matter what background we have or where we are located one thing that will always happen as we grow is that we will meet people. Some of these will become good friends, others will remain acquaintances or just people we can pass ourselves with. It’s so funny when I look back at my childhood and the abundance of friends that I had. Everyone was classed as my best friend so as not to disappoint. I was very much the child who didn’t like to upset anybody. I wanted all to feel special. I am probably still like this to a degree. But my network and the close group is so much smaller than it was and the people I am close to now I would class as good friends. I love how I meet people even now and we can just connect. Form the best of friendships straight away ones that we know will last until we are old and grey 🙂 February 7th is Send A Card To A Friend Day. Why not let that special friend know that you care, you think about them and appreciate how much they are there for you. I have found some gorgeous cards, tokens of thanks and cuddle Itty Bittys (never too old for a cuddly toy eh) over on the Hallmark website. Can you remember your first real friend?
Send A Card To A Friend Day
I have some absolutely beautiful friends. Some that I have grown with from childhood. Others I have met in my adult years and then I have my amazing online friends 🙂 We don’t necessarily speak all the time but if we need each other we are at the end of the phone.
True friendship is when you walk into their house and your WiFi connects automatically.
I love how one of my friends Zoe has children the same age as mine. 2 of them are actually in the same secondary school class. They are growing up together like Zoe and I did. 2 of our smalls are also entering the primary school where we first met next year and I know they will connect as Zoe and I did 30 odd years ago.

I have a lovely set of online friends that I met through Facebook groups. We have all known each other 4 years now. We met with our love of cloth nappies. These guys are all based in the UK. We chat lots, gift each other on birthdays and send cards at Christmas. If one is having a rough time we club together and send a gift ie chocolates, flowers or a card. I have even met a few of the girls in the UK when we have been over and 2 have come to stay with me here in Belfast. I love how just coming across girls can spark the best friendships. These girls have been with me through the good times and the bad and for me that just symbolises how wonderful they are as individuals.

I am really blessed to have a really lovely circle of friends. What better way to celebrate our friendship than to send them a card from Hallmark on Send A Card To A Friend Day. Letting them know how much of a positive impact they have made in our lives 🙂 Its always so nice to celebrate and acknowledge the good things in life.
