Friendships come and go throughout a life time. You have those that last the distance through primary, high school, your working life, then there are those that fleet in for a moment, are there for you through a special or troublesome moment and then fleet on out as that’s what they were there for.
I am one of the lucky ones (I believe I am) who has a large number of girlfriends, some that I have known since I was 7, others since 13 and others that I have met through Rob some 5 years ago. They all hold a special place in my life.
There is this one girl though ... I first met her in high school, around the age of 13. She is one of those girls who cherishes friendships, a person who you can always rely on for the honest answer, there is no sugar coating anything. She loves to have fun, will always look out for you in every situation and will come over early to help you prepare for a party.
She is one girl who I have definitely grown even closer to since beginning my pregnancy journey. She first became a Mum in May 2010 to a gorgeous little boy.
I have found myself constantly harassing her for advice about EVERYTHING.
She has never complained, she has never given me an answer that I want to hear she tells the truth, she says ‘yes it will be hard, but it is also so rewarding’.
She is such an amazing Mum to her little man and I adore watching her in this role. She adapted so quickly, she has been so calm through the past 17 months as she has learnt how to live life with this new addition. I admire her for all of this and I know I will be continuously calling her with even more questions once our new addition enters this world.
I just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU and I want you to know how much I appreciate YOU!
