Many moons ago when autograph books were all the rave, a friend wrote this little ditty for me;

“True friends are like diamonds, precious and rare,

False ones like autumn leaves, found everywhere.”

Over the last couple of months I have been blessed with lots of true friends. Friends within the family and those who we get to know through work and play. Each one has given me so much support, not in a showy way, but in a gentle precious way.  This week their help has been very practical, from a cake to comfort eat on(!) to a casserole for the family, to bunches of flowers and cards to say how much they care and are thinking of us, to a hug and a kiss.  And I know that over the next few weeks and months they will still be there, quietly in the background ready to answer that phone call or that text which says ‘help’.

So thank you for being there, for all the cards and the flowers you have given,


for the hugs and texts you have sent,


and thank you for helping me cope with losing my best friend – my Mum.
