Thanks to Kate for this link up, I mean it!
I had lunch yesterday with a friend and we were discussing friendship. I have had some disappointments recently, but during this discussion I was reminded of some beliefs I have had regarding friends. I can't believe this hadn't crossed my mind sooner but perhaps I needed a lesson or two in life.
I have always strongly believed that people weave in and out of your life as needed. I even suspect that we are the same circle of people in each lifetime, maybe with the odd role change and of course a large circle.
Some people you need and sometimes they need you.
Sometimes it is a quick visit and for others it can be a lifetime.
I know I need to do some work on letting go and moving on, this is something I really struggle with.
This doesn't lessen the fact that in my 44 years I have had some fabulous people come into my life.
I have even been lucky enough to have them come into my life more than once in some instances.
I am truly thankful for those people in my life and the lessons they have taught me.
