just a Phone Call Away...

I have a wonderful friend for whom a door has opened. A-n-d she and her family are going through it to a new life, a new adventure, m-i-l-e-s away. I admire her so very much. For taking the plunge. For being brave. For wanting a better life for her gorgeous family. 'The Girls' went out to lunch. Most of us met at Kindy as our boys/girls were starting together and have kept up a close friendship ever since. We sort of, well, 'clicked' really. We are all different but really the same. Do you know what I mean? Lunch was an emotional affair full of news, laughter, gifts, speeches....tears.  Is this the end as she goes off into the wild blue yonder? (in crocodile country no less. See, I told you she was brave...). No. No way indeed. Good friends are not like that. We have Skype. We have blogs. We have phones. Today, we have a zillion ways to keep in touch... Good friends also don't need to talk everyday. They catch up where they left off. That is just the way it is.... My friend is a gorgeous little thing with a lion's heart. She is heavenly. I wish her well on her new adventure and so look forward to hearing her stories...  Dear 'K', this is a 'see you later', never a 'goodbye'... You are always welcome to stay...

Ciao for now

just Martha


  1. We're so lucky we live in this day and age of skype, phones, email and planes etc aren't we. I sometimes think of my ancestors who immigrated to Australia in the 1800s, they'd probably only get a handfull of letters every year from their loved ones. But like you say Good friends don't need to talk all the time, it's like there's no time between seeing each other with friend like that.
    Have a great day,

  2. So true , good friends do just pick up where they left off, thats what is great about them!!!
