Can you ever think about friends without hearing that Dionne Warwick song, That’s what friends are for?  I can’t.  Keep smiling, keep shining, knowing you can always count on me. 

I am not the person with 800 plus friends on Facebook, if I had a wedding reception there would not have been a guest list of several hundred.  I have a small close group of friends.  My two oldest I’ve known for eighteen years.  I’m reserved in trusting people and I don’t give my heart easily or share my feelings.  I have four really close friends, 3 in this country and one abroad. 

I have always been envious of those people who can easily talk and latch on to people they don’t know really well.  With such ease, for me to get that comfortable I would have probably had to have known someone at that point for years!

That’s not to say I don’t make small talk with people or try to be friendly to most people, because I do.  I like talking to people.  But I value my friends so much.  I will do anything for my friends and in some cases I have- I even helped one friend who is a butcher,chop and package things in her shop.

The four things I love the most are my kids laughter, my husbands joking, chatting with my grandmother and my friends making me laugh and smile.

The theme for this month on is friends
