Hello and Welcome

to my little corner of the world. It’s a place where romance is everything and the path to happily ever after is an adventure waiting to be shared.

Travel down its rocky road with me and experience true love and laughter along the way with spirited heroines and to-die-for heroes.

Let the journey begin….

So I want my blog journey to begin with a topic that is very much my focus at the moment - friendship.  This seems very fitting for me because it is as a result of a precious friendship that my blog even exists.

As defined by the Oxford Dictionary, friendship means simply:
‘the emotions or conduct of friends; the state of being friends’

So how then would the dictionary define ‘friend’
‘a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection’

The above definitions just don’t seem to adequately describe to me what a friend or friendship encompasses.  But is friendship really that easy to define. 

I think Muhammad Ali says it well in his quote:

“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.  It’s not something you learn in school.  But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.”

I believe you know when true friendship has touched you.  Every so often the stars will align and you will be given something special… someone special.  And it is to this we must hold on to for it is too precious to ever let it slip through your fingers.

In my life, I have been touched on a few occasions with the gift of true friendship.  It has come in the form of my wonderful husband and true life hero, my beautiful daughters and those people not related to me whom I am lucky enough to have had enter my life.  You know who you are!

I don’t believe friends or friendship can be so easily defined.  Friendship is not a bunch of words but a bunch of feelings.  I believe it is a million little things that show friendship.  An ear that listens without judgement, a shoulder to cry on, someone who allows you to be yourself, someone to give you courage and inspiration where you thought there was none, someone who’s by your side when others find it inconvenient.

So maybe I need to give the dictionary a break.  Defining friendship is no easy task.  I do think, however, there were so many words left out in the dictionary definition. Words like encouragement, commitment, acceptance, inspiration, hope, fun, peace, forgiveness, laughter and of course love.

I’m sure you have your own words you’d like to add….

On a lighter note
