Serendipity Sundays ~ Life's Treasures

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

After reading a post this morning from Aura Alex it made me think about how important beasties are in our lives. I looked up slang for friends and was surprised at how many words are used!

I have a group of special friends I like to refer to as Besties (short for Best Friend) and have to say these pictured below also fall into the category of BFFL (Best Friends For Life). We laugh, we cry, you can bet we always have fun!

                     

We thrive on human interaction which gives our lives meaning. Most people list family and friends when asked to name the best things in life, and winning or success is hardly ever mentioned. Why is that? Humans building relationships is crucial to our well-being and gives our lives meaning.

“Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we never really are alone.”   Vincent Van Gogh

Hi Dorie- what a beautiful post. There are so many treasures many of us are blessed to have in life. But family and good friends are ones that when we take stock of what we have, are the ones that we value the most.

Dorie, that photo of you and your 3 other besties is very special.  I like how all your clothing looks coordinated and accents each other.

Hi Aura Alex ,

I love how sometimes we are reading a post from another AR member and a chord is struck that causes us to pause and maybe ponder how it affects us or someone we know.
