I get by with a little help from my friends ...

I love friends .... I love having friends, i love being a friend ... be it acquaintance friendship or a deep down soul sista friendship ...
coffee is best when shared with friends

I feel blessed that in life i have had some amazing friends  ... ones that have stood the test of time and stood with me through good and bad ... some of these amazing chicas are recent friends and some are long term friends ... And recently I have found some wonderful blogging friends ... women who are interesting, sharing, caring & fun ... and these dear girls make blogging so much fun.

Mona Lisa Mae and one of my very bestest friends in the whole wide world ... 
And some friends are fleeting ... there for a while ... usually found when you have something in common and then lost once that common interest declines ... and yet I am blessed to have had such wonderful fleeting friends ... people whom i have been lucky enough to learn something from ... and to have shared something with.

Mona Lisa May is all dressed up for Halloween ... that little black button is actually a little spider

and speaking of friends ... Mona Lisa Mae has been out and about meeting some Fantastic and some Frightening Friends these days ... the frightening friends are really only scary till you get to know them ... they really are fun friends ... they just look a little different than the rest of us ...


Meet the VooDoo Princess .... complete with pins!!!

FUN F post! And you're so right about different kinds of Friends, but what would we be without any of them....They help make us who we are.

I love the friends that are there through thick and thin. The fleeting friends have taught me many things though.

Thanks for the kind words on my Texas Friendly post. I hope I finish my Texas quilt soon, too. Let's get our WIP's done...I'll work for the Letter Q and you get yours out of the closet! Love this post on Friends. You and MonaLisa are so lucky to have such sweet friends.

I have a lot of acquaintances, and some very good friends. The first are here today, and gone tomorrow, the second are people that I can always count on. I am lucky.

I never liked the idea of fleeting friends. It always feels like a bad breakup to me.

Mona Lisa May is adorable and so are her friends. The friends that are intriguing to me are the fleeting friends. There for awhile in your life and so important and then gone. Joni

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Jo! I'm so glad you came by my blog yesterday. I may not have ever found you in this virtual world. Your post about friends is so right on! It expresses how I feel about my friends, long and fleeting. I'm looking forward to exploring your blog.
Su-sieee! Mac

Friends are good to have. They save me from insanity on a daily basis.

I love your quote. That is exactly what friends do! I too am blessed with some very good friends. They make life so much more rich.

Jenny said...

Jo, what a sweet stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursdays letter "F".

Where did you get the voodoo princess? I need to order some of those. Quickly!

I really enjoyed reading about your philosophy of friendship. I think when we keep our hearts open, friends come in at the right time...I've found that happen many times here in Blogland, too!

Thank you for linking!

Have a BOOtiful Halloween!

A+
