Friendship is...

Good Morning! And what a morning it is. I went to bed at 1:30 am on a week night but oh was it worth it. After an amazing praise and worship night at church a couple of my friends and I decided to grab some food and eat at a friend's house. And there we sat and ate and laughed and talked about childhood stories like first movies, first books, accidents when we were kids, funny stories from what we did. And we just went on and on and on and we didn't want to leave and I loved being right there in that moment despite of time or work in the morning. All I wanted was to be close to my friends, my family, my companions, my fellow warriors. In this there was so much beauty and how my friend put it, we had a piece of heaven on earth and I agree. Heavenly it was!

Today's statement is by the gorgeous Saskia who I appreciate so much and am so thankful to have in my life. She is funny and smart and an amazing communicator and she has an amazing intuition with people and places. Being at the right time at the right place is a whole other level with her. So I'm blessed to share her thoughts on Friendship is...

… to be there for somebody when they least expect it
… to go the extra mile for my friends
… to listen to them when you would need them to listen
… to love them unconditionally
… to laugh with them but most of all to CRY with them
… to be able to call them in the middle of the night just to tell them that I love them
… to reveal my weaknesses to them and not be judged but to be even loved more!!!

Hope you are having a beautiful day!

Friendship is...

Tanja and I at a wedding 2010

Today's statement is by my sweet friend Tanja. My friendship with her is defnitely an example of how to stay friends even if you're miles apart! I believe it is the connection you have in your heart that endures so that you can just pick it up where you left it and be deeply connected without knowing every detail of each other's lives.

"Friendship is someone that is closer than a Brother and will go the extra mile without even thinking about it."

Well... friends I hope you are having a wonderful week. I am sooo looking forward to the weekend as Melina and I are going on a little trip to Scotland for the weekend!



PS: I would love to hear from you guys... what do you think about friendship? What is friendship for you?

Hey blogger friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was awesome as I was privileged to host my sister's bridal shower together with my best friends. It was sooo much fun!

Anyways... today's friendship statement is by my future brother in law. It is sooo cool to gain a brother to the family. He's awesome and makes my sister so very happy!

"Friendship is... reliability, to be accepted, to be the way you are, honesty, openness"

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

Friendship is....

Good morning!! It's Friday morning and everything is bliss today! Biked to my church's early morning prayer and my heart just opened up as I listened to the sounds of spring arising. It feels like nature is about to burst out and the birds are twittering and new life comes forth. I love spring so much.

Today's Friendship is... statement is by my gorgeous sister who is getting married in July. So thrilled. We're throwing her a bridal shower tomorrow! It's such an honor for me to be her maid of honor and to be part in planning and making this day special for her...

Friendship is....

Hello... I am utterly sorry for being such a bad blogger recently. A lot has been going on and I just did not have the inspiration to sit down and blog.
As you know I am still talking about Friendship and over the next week or so I will share statements by my friends and what they believe friendship is... It will usually only be a sentence or two, but I hope you will enjoy it!

Friendship grows

California 2007 - Malibu Mountains

Haven't you enjoyed the last couple interviews. I know I totally did!
I just wanted to leave you with a couple thought before I leave for Winter Weekend our youth Winter Camp in the Swiss Alps. Snowboarding here we come. I just love the effect these mountains, snow, crisp air have on you. There is not much as relaxing!

Anyways... these last days I have been thinking about the stages a friendship goes through. I mean we all know that friendships grow but what I really mean is the moment you feel a friendship going deeper, reaching a new level. It is something so freeing yet something so bold and risky it makes you grow personally as well!

Hope you will have a wonderful weekend as well!
