Amazing friends 11/29

Meet Maria and Meghan. These are two of the most beautiful souls that I have been blessed to know along my journey.

I have known them as long as I have been alive. Our moms are best friends and grew up in the same small town.

We took family vacations together. We went to the local pizza place and met for pizza’s on Friday nights when we were just kids.

Births, deaths, celebrations, sickness…the whole spectrum of life we have known one another.

Last week we met for breakfast at a little place called the Blueberry Muffin. It was cold outside but inside there was a fire and such warmth from these two wonderful friends.

We had not seen one another in over TEN YEARS. But it felt like a moment in time had not passed.

Meghan’s eyes still flirt with everyone who glances her way and Maria’s laugh is greatly contagious.

Of course things happened in all of our lives. The details of our lives are different now.

But the love…it has to be the love…is still ever present. The connection. The truth. It was all overwhelmingly right there.

I can remember sharing secrets and laughing as children.

This breakfast was no different. We shared and we laughed.

It was pure. It was beautiful and it was real.

Thank you ladies…your love just pours out of you and I am blessed to know you.

***It is no coincidence that this will post on my moms bday. My mom would be so pleased if she knew how to use the internet and see the post.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

      1. Wow – that makes so much sense Mark…I have always tried to hold on to tightly – tried to control or manipulate- especially with those so close to me.
        I was baffled by the love that never changed with these two girls it was and is so beautiful ❀️
        It gave me another clue – as you just did – in letting go
        Thank you πŸ™

      2. I found a very simple remedy…If the reason I’m going to do or say something with a friend or loved one…I would react to myself…don’t do it. Or at the least be open and honest with them. Honesty, even if it is something not good, builds love like nothing else. They will see that whatever is being said is hard for you or a difficult situation and realize you are being honest. And yes, some may be very hard but as long as it has no malice and done with that truth, it will always build love. Even when your fears come up in a situation, tell them your fears. We all have them, and yes sometimes we don’t want to tell the world because we don’t want anyone to know our so called ‘faults’, but if you bring that honesty to a relationship, you are giving them the same permission and it will build that love and trust so important to any relationship πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½
