- “Almost there friend. Keep hanging on to my tail and let’s stick close. Together, we’ll get to the top of this mountain in a flash!”
The minute I saw this picture my friend sent from his romantic trip to Aruba with his lovely wife, I broke out smiling. Immediately, I thought of what fun friendship brings. Cracked me up imagining these adorable yet distinctly different creatures having the time of their lives together on this rock-mountain.
And well, my quirky sense of humour got the best of me. I just couldn’t resist adding the silly caption that reflects the serious truth about friendship and sharing it here for you. Hope this gets you grinning from ear to ear and reJOYcing over the friends who stick by you. Friends who stick it out through the tough days and sticky messes. Friends you stick by and stick with because they mean so much…and you love them so!
With special thanks to the friends who are the glue that hold me together with love that sticks around even when hard times are on the loose. You rock!
I’m tickled pink to link you up with my amazing friend Holley Gerth today for more reasons to smile in addition to a generous measure of Coffee for Your Heart.
Thank you Holley Gerth

I don’t think anyone would call me vain or shallow, but I did want to look nice for my elementary school’s 50th anniversary celebration. I even thought about getting a manicure for the special occasion…until so many of my nails broke just before the date.
You can only imagine how excited I was getting ready that evening to spend some time with the people I grew up with and remember fondly. Then the bracelet I planned on wearing broke, couldn’t find my second choice, and my third choice which I hadn’t worn in a long time was so tarnished it took me quite a while to clean and polish it. To top things off, my new mascara turned into a flaky mess that had to be promptly removed and my faithful moisturizer turned crumbly on my face. It started to snow like crazy which would surely spell disaster for my hair and challenged the wisdom of wearing sleek pumps to the event. Things were starting to look like something out of a comedy show… and I laughed. Out loud. Looked like I was going to have to rely on my inner beauty to save the day. It also brought the above verse to mind. And the reunion? It was a wonderful, lovely evening shared with some of the most beautiful people – inside and out – I have ever known.
