Guest Post Today....from my bloggie buddy! Enjoy!
I have had the honour of being asked by my American blogger friend Ellie to guest post for her blog. I thought sure, why not. I began to think of what I could talk about at her place and trust me, I was very tempted. We have already discussed practically everything that is delicious to discuss. Then it hit me, as I looked at the cover of a novel I just read in two days. It is an adult novel by one of my favourite "children's" author..Judy Blume. The book is titled Summer Sisters. It is about two very different girls and the bond of friendship they share throughout their lives. I thought it was fitting. On these blogs, we will comment if something strikes us as funny, angers us, draws out our opinions. Within these comments, sometimes we are able to find a common thread and if we are very lucky, maybe even a lifetime
friend. I feel a kinship with Ellie, and we joke and say we must be sisters from another life. Maybe we are sisters of the heart in this lifetime. My wish is for anyone that reads this, it makes you sit back and think of your own life and the friends you share it with. I know that my life would not be the same, without my friends, whether it be real life or online. I am sure men have profound friendships, but I know that women need and depend on their friends, the good and the bad. Feel free to share your personal stories of friendship and any particular ones that have influenced your life for the better or the worse.
Ellie, thank you for the pleasure of guest hosting and here's to a lifetime
of stories, smiles, tears and laughter!
Your Maple Leaf Sister, Nicole
Thank you bunches Nicole! If you have ever seen the movie, Anne of Green Gables....you will know, I totally understand what you mean. Judy Blume is one of my favorite authors. I just finished reading a dirty little book entitled "Wifey" by Judy Blume. I have to send it to you! It falls in line with those dirty little conversations we often have! So now ..looks like I have another read to look forward to. Can't wait to one day hang out in Nic's backyard. If ya'll check out her site you will know what I am talking about...sounds like a wild place ...among friends!
