Today I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday again.
Friends are an important constant in my life. I give a lot to my friends but I also ask a lot from them in return.
I only have a few really good and close friends. Some of my best friends accompanied my life since we were in elementary school and these grown friendships are so important to me. They are like old, tall trees, their leaves moving softly in the breeze, graciously accepting the gifts of the sun and the rain, giving me a feeling of belonging and security, their treetops sheltering from the storms and the trunks deeply rooted in the earth.
But I also found new and precious friends along the journey down the path of my life and they are very special to me as well. These plants still need a lot of care and attention and every now and then it is important to shelter them. They really mean a lot to me with their new, light green leaves and tender blossoms.
