Friendship Challenge

This time around we are scrapping about friendships. As Robert Louis Stevenson said "A friend is a gift you give yourself." True, true...right? We all have those friends you can just be yourself with and laugh with until 1am. Or those friends you don't get to see but every 5 years, and when you do it was like you just saw each other yesterday. So let's celebrate friendship for the next 2 weeks!
There is friendship in the traditional sense. And then there are other types of friendships to celebrate as well. Is your dog one of your best buddies? Or do your grandmother and her pet parrot have a bond that is unbreakable? Do you have a "group" that gets together once a month for Bunco, or dinner and a movie? Or has your child bonded with a teacher that has developed into a friendship? Think about all the types of friendship you find yourself and you family surrounded with. There may be more than you realize. :)
This is running from today through June 19th. Please be sure to link up your LO here so we can find it and add it up to the slide show!
Here are the DT examples...lots of great ideas! Have fun with this one, and I can't wait to see all the friendship LO's! :)

Great Challenge

Jounaling Reads:
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them”. My friendship with you is truly blessed because there is no one I am more at ease with in just being myself.

It is uncanny that we came upon one another and instantly connected from the first conversation we shared. Our relationship has bonded our lives and I truly believe our friendship is eternal. I love that we share the same values and beliefs. I love that we just have to look at one another and the unspoken word unites our thoughts. Most importantly, I love that our relationship has given me another sister, a sister who is a soul mate.

True friends can grow separately without growing apart. While we may not see each other every day, or even every week, we share a relationship that has nurtured our lives individually, and has also seen us grow together in an unbreakable union.

We may not be lifelong friends, but our friendship will surely enjoy a long life !
