Have you noticed how many people there are around who say an awful lot and actually do very little.......I've been thinking about this a lot over the last few months. Relationships/friendships that have been some of the most important relationships in my life and what have they amounted to???
The answer, as I have now realised sadly, is very, very little.
Today is my birthday and I have had lots of lovely cards and best wishes from friends and family, but I have to admit being to being totally floored by a family bringing me a lovely bunch of flowers and a card. I know this family and like them a lot but we're not close.......so for them to know it was my birthday and not just acknowledge that but to take the time to bring me some lovely flowers really humbled me, and even brought a little tear to my eye :)
So at the grand old age of 42, I have learned that actions will tell you, and show you, who your true friends are, far quicker than empty words will.
Now I'd better get moving, I hear there's a rather fantastic parade occuring in London tomorrow - I'll forgive them for celebrating my birthday a day late LOL
At least they've got the flags out for me :)
