Friends


I tried hard to come up with something I accomplished this week, something to celebrate, but couldn't come up with a single thing. 
*grumble, gripe, growl*

Then I realized all my friends deserve a medal for putting up with me.  They not only listen to my moaning and complaining, but they patiently sympathize and even spend valuable time from their day trying to cheer me up.  No matter what quantity of poop is raining on my head, they unfurl a big umbrella over me and make everything bearable.

Thanks to all my helpful and supportive friends.  
You make my life better and brighter.
I don't know what I'd do without you.




This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is follow the link and put your name on the Mr.Linky list, and then be sure to post every Friday about something you're grateful  for that week.  It can be about writing or family or school or general life.  This is the funnest and easiest blog hop ever!

Friends are a great blessing and they are also good for health. :)

This reminds me of the quote from the movie "It's a Wonderful Life"...."Remember, no man (or woman) is a failure who has friends" :)

You don't complain!
Friends always make life better.

Suzanne Furness said...

True friends are those who are there through thick and thin. I'll celebrate good friends with you :)

Kelly Hashway said...

What a nice post! Yay for great friends!

Jimmy Fungus said...

I certainly would give my friends medals if I had any. I would bribe them with anything...cookies, teddy bears, etc etc. If people knew about this, they might come around just to get free cookies. Welp, I guess they know about it know if they are reading this. Let's see if I get any "cookie friends."

Friends are definitely deserving of medals! Yay for celebrating them ;)

Doggy and kitty! Very cute pic... I know I would have given up on my writing if not for my writing partner. We need each others' support! Have a great weekend. :)

I need to add a new "I am thankful for" to my Celebrate the Small Things list. I am grateful that Lexa stopped at my blog! This is where my little secret Egyptologist's heart wants to roam! Thanks for finding my blog, Lexa so I could find yours! I hope we can get to know each other more! :D

This is such a great post and the picture is adorable!

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

It is good to know that no matter how horrible you think you may be, there are friends and family who are always there for you until you can get back to normalcy.

unikorna said...

You're right Lexa, small things in life are the best....like spring...if only she should come already.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Glad to know you've got friends you can count on to throw that umbrella up over your head!

And you know what I've been startled to realize lately? Some of my closest friends are people I have not (yeet) met in person. Whenever I have something to share -- good or bad -- I often email these people before I share with the people I actually know in person.

The internet is a wonderful thing!

Suze said...

It it always in good form to give thanks. :)

DMS said...

It is always important to be thankful for our friends! We are so lucky to have people in our lives who love us and listen to us. Great post!

Having good friends should definitely be celebrated.
I don't know what I'd do without them. (:

Aw, friends are the best! I love being able to get online and interact with bloggers I consider friends. Thanks for being a great bloggie friend, Lexa! :D

Carol Kilgore said...

I love the picture! I feel like people put up with me, too. Especially Husband. It isn't easy being married to a writer. Especially one on deadline.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

What a precious photo. Friends are friends, even the furry kind. I'm happy to be your friend.

Beth said...

Lexa, you're awesome!!!

Karen Tamara said...

aaawww...this was really sweet. It's nice to see you again, Lexa! I took a hiatus from blogging, but I'm back. This is Tamara btw (from One Magic Bean Buyer) Just wanted to stop by and say hello, and tell you I'm back online.Me and my friend Karen are running a new blog together, that's why you'll see me commenting/following under the name Karen Tamara. :)

Anyway, sorry you had a rough week, but I adore the picture you posted. I used to have a beautiful houndog. Indy. He died last year, but he looked a lot like the dog in your picture. Brought back happy memories! Again, very nice to "see" you again. I'll definitely be back.

Lynda R Young said...

Hugs

And that photo is GORGEOUS!

Natalie Aguirre said...

We all have those days! Hope you're feeling better today. Love the dog picture.

J.L. Campbell said...

Hi, Lexa,
When I'm blue, I always remind myself of the wonderful supportive network of people I have around me.

Marsha Sigman said...

Where would we be without friends to keep us sane? ha Great post/and pic.

C. Lee McKenzie said...

Grumble. Grump. Growl. There. I've paid you back! Just kidding. I never really noticed any of that coming at me. Hope all is better and you're smiling like the kitty in that sweet picture.

Cecilia Robert said...

Aw...love that picture. :) Thank you for being you Lexa, so supportive and encouraging and your posts and comments bring a smile on my face. <3 you right back!! :)
