Never Take Your True Friends For Granted

A big shout out to a friend of ours, Dawn, who has been poorly of late and in and out of hospital. This lady and her family entered our lives last year and have been a constant source of love and support ever since. Our families have merged and it feels as if we have all known each other for decades, as opposed to months. We were worried earlier in the week about her, but thankfully it’s nothing too serious and we hope to see her fighting fit again soon.

Dawn is an amazing baker, the cupcakes she made for my birthday still bring a smile to my face. She is an even more amazing mother to three super talented children who excel in film, theatre and art. Her eldest daughter is designing the cover for ‘Skelly’s Square’ once her exams are over and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with. I’m also hoping her son will take the promotional photos of yours truly looking mean and moody in murky Belfast back streets.

So, thank you Dawn. For your love, talents, humour and prayers. We love and miss you. Never take the friends in your life for granted. The true friends, the ones who show up when you most need them, who talk the talk and walk the walk. They are precious and the rarest of commodities. It’s like panning for gold but worth it in the end, as you sift through the grit and gravel for years on end, before finding that golden nugget.

What friends are you most grateful for?

  1. I am so lucky to have a wonderful, fierce and loving group of girls who have lifted me up and carried me through some of my darkest most challenging times. I am eternally grateful to my soul sisters!


  2. Prayers for Dawn. I hope her health improves soon.

    I am thankful for my sweet jogging buddy friend. We meet once per week for a longer run, and she NEVER lets me down. She also thinks the best of me when I say/do something confusing when others might think I had bad intentions. (Did that make sense? Hard to explain what I mean.) Anyway, she’s sweet.:-)


  3. You find out who your true friends when things go south in your life in about 30 seconds. It’s easy to have friends when things are going great.


  4. Too many to name: and some would protest that they don’t do enough. I have those who love me as I am, not as who they want me to be.
