I spotted this blog hop a few weeks ago and thought it was such a fab idea as there are lots of reasons to be cheerful but haven't braved joining in yet. But after the day I had yesterday, and seeing one of my very favourite blogs joining in also for the first time (pollyrabbit) I really wanted just to mention one big reason to be cheerful...
I have such lovely supportive friends. After spending a lovely day with one of my bestest friends and planning another day with another of my bestest friends tomorrow, I feel cheerful. Here's the 1, 2, 3 bit in my attempt at getting it a bit right for the blog hop...
1. I feel cheerful that it is so easy spending time with good friends even after months of not seeing them...it is just like picking up a conversation where you left off.
2. There never seem enough hours to spend with good friends. We used our full 4 hours we had put on the parking meter today and it still didn't seem enough.
3. Good friends understand...they understand about Josh's difficulties, they don't judge him, they love him for who he is. They go out of their way to help to make life easier for me.
However bad a day you have had the day before, good friends help you smile (and believe it or not I was even able to laugh about some of what happened!). Good friends offer words of encouragement, help and hope.
Thank you to my special friends - you know who you are and you are the reason I am cheerful today!
