Travel Theme: Friendship

“The only way to have a friend, is to be one.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This week’s Travel Theme’ invites us to celebrate ‘Friendship’ in all its different guises.

My mom is on my mind a lot this weekend. Here is a photo of her with Marge who was her best friend for many decades. Mom once told me that they were even closer than sisters and shared all their secrets. They were so comfortable in each others’ company and were really happy to grow old together.

Here’s me with my best friend. Hubby and I are so rarely apart, that we’re like one another’s shadows.

George and I? No, we’re just acquaintances. 🙂

I loved seeing this man and his best friend going for an early morning paddle together in Manuel Antonio.

Happy Birthday Jeff

It’s thirty-eight  years today since my precious baby son was placed into my arms, and it was certainly love at first sight. Now he’s a father of three and has a sweet son of his own.

We’ve had so much fun together over the years, and made some fabulous memories. So on this special day, the Mummy’s mummy wishes him a very happy year.
