The importance of friendship

I sat in a church packed to the rafters yesterday at a funeral service to farewell Charlie.

Everyone who spoke – in the church and at the wake – spoke of the most important part of his life: friendships. He worked hard at them his whole {too-short} life.

The crowd, the stories, the tears and the laughter were all testament to that.

In Charlie’s honour I am going to spend more time reaching out to my friends. Picking up the phone to talk not just text or email. Catching up for a coffee/wine and a hug.

Charlie’s service was just the reminder I needed.

Mumma to Poppy Grace (born January 2011); forever friend to my furry buddies Bella & Bear; love spending time with family & friends, cooking, reading, writing, design & watching trashy TV (when I find time)! I try to perform one random act of kindness each day & think more people should learn a lesson in unconditional love & acceptance from our 4-legged furry friends. This is my journey to motherhood & beyond - single by chance, mother by choice.

  1. Sorry for your loss. Friends are the family we get to hand pick! Charlie taught you a wonderful lesson. He is still touching you from heaven.
