Friendship – Everyday beautiful people 85

“Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.” Edna Buchanan


I sat yesterday nursing a smoothie after work and trying to write a couple of lines before moving along, but as usual my eyes’ were drawn to passersby when the two lovely ladies strolled by leisurely chatting, laughing and hands entwined as they admired the dresses through the boutiques show glass.

My eyes trailed them for several minutes and after a while I could no longer resist going up to chat with them briefly. They shared bits about themselves and their philosophy with me and I went away feeling fuller in spirit and wearing a smile.

Indeed, friends can be found in unlikely places and a true friend will accept who you are, will hold your hand and will help you become who you should be.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

  1. This is beautiful, Jackie. The quote, the picture and your story are all a testament to what would bring peace to this troubled world – simply getting to know one another just as we are.

  2. We all need genuine friendship in our lives. It helps us to weather storms better and celebrate better.

    However, the African girl looks like the younger version of you. At first, I thought you were going to say, ” this is me, many years ago”, haaha.


  3. You have to BE a good friend to have good friends. The most important trait of a good friend is that they know how to listen and that they know how to hear. Those are two different things. Both are required of a true friend.


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
