the art of friendship?


i have been thinking a lot about friendships lately.  i am one blessed girl when it comes to friends ....true friends that i can count on no matter what.  friends that i really WANT to talk to every day....that i would do anything in the world for and them for me~
i am grateful for new friends,
 (judy ;) and (bee ;) and (shellie ;)and the fact that THE judy wise is just a beautiful human...not some ego crazy artist that is untouchable...she is "real" folks~and i love that about her.
and also blog friends...(suzanne, xo)...across the great big oceans and into a whole different country is one big hearted, beautiful girl. a friend that i stay connected with and love for her generosity and giving spirit. a sweet momma and kindred sister~

then there are also the friends that have come and gone....or the ones i barely am able to keep in touch with.  friends that used to be in touch all the time.(our paths have crossed for a reason)
i believe that we are all put in touch at different times in our lives and connect with different friends at different times for different reasons.  sometimes i feel a little funk or even offended that some of my peeps aren't  good at staying in touch and after a while i back off and stop trying....but that doesn't mean i don't love them all just the same.  i think and HOPE that this is a normal thing that just happens over time with some people.  there are a few that i can't imagine not seeing and talking to all the time though....and those i guess are the true essence of the word "friend".  they are the ones that keep me going and that i can share all of my true thoughts and feelings with ....knowing that i won't be judged.  i love them more than they can know and am thankful for them and all they bring to my life~and to my family~

  1. i am still amazed at the friendships that are born through blogs...it humbles me and reminds me just how small the world really is. thank you, dear kim, for your gifts, words, and beautiful art that you share with the world. hugs from this coast to yours. xx

  2. Kim, coincidently I'm wearing the necklace you made me today. Will send a private email but I've been thinking about you non-stop this weekend. You have enriched many lives this year and mine is one. Thank you for your kindness and friendship. You are cherished.
