Friendship Means. . .


My sweet friend, Neha,

who writes Forgotten Meadows

Along with her newest blog,

Quote and Lyrics for the Soul

tried to Challenge me to post

Three days in a row, with quotes.

It is called appropriately,

Three Day Quote Challenge.

There are rules to follow,

Will someone else like to pick

up the Gauntlet and Take the Challenge?

I admire the beauty in her writing and photographs.

I admire her caring and asking how I am from time to time.

I am pleased she has gone far in her blogging, adding fine readers.

I hope you will check her blog out and enjoy her beautiful original

poetry and see what she has posted for her “Three Days of Quotes.”


********************************* FRIENDSHIP *********************************************

Check her posts titled, “Solid,” “Summer Dreams,” and “Essence in a Drop.”

Recently, she included a Midsummer’s Nights Dream

in her “Lilac Dreams” post.




“The language of friendship is

not words but meanings.”

Henry David Thoreau


“Friendship is the only cement

that will ever holdΒ  the world together.”

Woodrow T. Wilson


“Don’t walk behind me,

I may not lead.

Don’t walk in front of me,

I may not follow.

Just walk beside me

and be my friend.”

Albert Camus

  1. You are a warm-hearted friend, dear Robin. True friends are the ones who walk beside us and pick up the vibes of emotional bonding. I love the quote by Albert Camus.
    Thanks for making my morning so pleasant! πŸ™‚

    • I was so happy this post made your morning better.
      This took me awhile to get my comments finished, Balroop.
      I got up and ate, did a couple replies and then, off to work for nearly 11 hours today. Not complaining, just explaining πŸ™‚
      I like the way you describe good friends who sense each other’s needs and share ‘vibes of emotional bonding.’ Perfectly expressed, my dear friend.

    • I am so glad you liked this. I press Image from time to time, look to see if it looks too crazy and it is a nice change of pace for me, too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for sharing about your volunteering at nursing homes with your dog. You are giving both time and a gift of your dog, so many people consider this therapeutic. Some places have a ‘resident dog or resident cat’ πŸ™‚

  2. aww you made me tear with your post…so thoughtful and so kind…your gesture touched my heart…thank you so much ❀ May I reblog this ? Thank you my friend …words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation for your encouragement ❀

    • Neha, you are certainly allowed to re-blog this, so sorry my days at work have been long so I did not get back to comment for awhile… Thank YOU for being around and a good friend for so long. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Robin

    • I am so happy you enjoyed the quotes, too. Sorry I just had an 11 hour day yesterday, just imagine my trying to write another post. I had already scheduled the nursing home post, so I would have it ready, when busy. Thanks for asking me to do this, I may have not accepted the Challenge, but I tried. πŸ™‚

      • aww no worries at all you went above and beyond with this post…and we all know life happens in between that sounds like a looong day! relax this weekend! ❀

    • Pauline, so glad you checked out Neha’s posts. I have seen growth in her choices of words and photos, she writes her own ‘stuff.’
      I have heard this Camus quote for some time now, but had not written it on any other posts. I do occasionally repeat myself! Smiles, Robin

    • Thank you, Rashmi. You are a good friend for being here, along with posting such interesting and intelligent posts about many beautiful places you have been to. I continue to be surprised at all those wonderful places. I loved the two heart lakes post a lot. Take care!

    • Jill, this is a fantastic one! It is so true, too. We can choose our friends, not our family. We are so blessed to have the best of two worlds. I would not trade my kids in or my friends, either! πŸ™‚

    • I did not go farther, Bela. This was my one and only ‘Hurrah,’ since I have had grueling long and hot days at work. All everyone got was what was in my Drafts column of my wordpress. ha ha! πŸ™‚

  3. I almost missed this Robin, as we had a nearby fire in Sta. Clarita yesterday and I was alternatively watching the news and running outside to inspect the smoke cloud. Luckily it is under control now and far away but I was concerned.

    Anyway, since my whole mission via my blog is to build a community of good friends so we can share and support each other, I love this post! I will check Neha’s blogs.

    All three quotes are exceptional. The last one would be great to remember!


    • It is an easy one, which I checked and had not used it before. I love also Kahlil Gibran’s one about being like two cypress trees, standing strong together side by side, neither in each other’s shadow. Hugs to you, my other pea in a pod. I shall be off at Mom’s while there will be two posts I rushed to schedule and a re-blog which I don’t think you have seen about lighthouses.
      I absolutely loved your natural settings and healthy foods today. I know it was out there, but I had long, grueling days and finally am on vacation!! Yeah!
      Take care and enjoy this week ahead and hope to “see” (and “talk” with) you soon, Beth.

    • So sorry about this fire and how close to you was it, Beth? This is scary with the dryness out there and we have had flooding here! 😦 Too bad we cannot balance this out….

  4. Lovely quotes, Robin. πŸ™‚
    I have to apologise because I struggle with some of your longer posts. My attention span isn’t what it once was. Probably the reason I use so many photos. They break the text up and create a diversion. Hope you’re having a good weekend
