Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday

Round 20-F

My 130th entry – bijdrage

Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is F and I’ve chosen for the word Friendship


Recipe for friendship:
1 liter of trust, 1 dash of caring, 2 cups of understanding, 2 spoons of shared secrets, 1 cup of  mutual affection, 1 pinch of respect, 2 teaspoons of common interest, 3 spoons of listening & 1 great deal of fun.

Friendship, I don’t know in how many forms it exists but thankfully that is not important. It exists and that is what it is all about, or is it not?

The really true friends, who matter most, are there whenever I need them to be. Just a text-message or phonecall away. No matter what kind of ‘need’ I am in, they are there. To know that, to feel it  very deep and intens, is a wonderful thing.

Then there are other people who one can call friends, like bloggers for example. Some of them I call good friends, some of them I call distant friends and some of them I call very good friends. Some friends stay in ones life for a short period, some come and never leave. In that last category I have a couple, just a handfull, but man am I a rich person!

So, today…. the day on which Love is the subject in most people all over the world, it was the only word for me to use for this edition of my abc-wednesday-entries. Love… is the only thing which can make you feel great and miserable at the same time, but nobody can do without.

I wish to all of you, that special feeling, to know by own experience how it feels to be loved by true friends. The love you feel back to that other one. Love is the base of life. Love is the base for any for of relationship. Love and be loved!!

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~

    Een goede vriendschap is onbetaalbaar en ik kan me helemaal vinden in dat recept. En dan is een paar goede vrienden ook voldoende.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Nou precies…helemaal waar!!

  4. lesliebc schreef:

    What a fantastic sentiment, especially for this day. I had forgotten about it, as I don’t have a “valentine” but my friends are very special to me anyway. It is so important to have friends in whom one can confide with full trust!

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thank you Leslie.

      A real ‘valentine’… I don’t have either. Over here in The Netherlands it is not a custom like in many other parts of the world. My hubbie things its nonsens to give attention to it 😉
      But… if there is a day to celebrate love, than this day is okay be me, and to me Valentine is about love.

      Nice to read you have those friends, I do to, we have in common that we know how important that is and that is something to be grateful for, isn’t it?

    1. Melody schreef:

      Indeed it does, and how wonderful would it be it that success was garanteed? 😉

  6. ellen b schreef:

      Thank you Ellen.

      I do to… thank you so much, the same for you.

  7. Rajesh schreef:

    Excellent choice.

    1. Melody schreef:

      thank you Rajesh

  8. Hildred Finch schreef:

    What a wonderful choice for F – what would the world be like without friends, – the flowers in one’s garden of life…

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thank you Hildred … indeed what would.. .but if you don’t mind, I don’t want to know 😉

  9. Indrani schreef:

      Thank you Indrani, the same wishing for you!

      Thank you Artmusedog & Carol.

      indeed it is, very much so.

      likewise !!

  11. Klara S schreef:

    Lovely post! So warm.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thank you Klara!

      Its heartwarming to feel love for other people and be loved back, isn’t it

  12. jesh stg schreef:

    Cute recipe for friendship, but I think i need more than een snufje of respect:) More like a gallon! (haha)

    1. Melody schreef:

      😉 A ‘snufje’ is enough with people who are sincere Jesh…. and people who are not are not worth our attention nor ‘loving’ feelings. We can do without people like those, don’t we?

      A gallon of it…. would be very nice ofcourse but nowadays, in the world we live in, respect seems a word in disgrace …sadly enough.

  13. Where else did I read a post about friendship? Oh yea, mine… great minds think alike. Blessings!

    1. Melody schreef:

      😉 😉 😉

      I indeed do believe that you and I are alike in many ways .

      Thank you, wishing you the same!!

  14. islandrambles schreef:

    Wonderful posting. I wonder if there is a translator on your page, also I could not find how to comment and then I found the comments at the end of the blog. I will spend more time looking around on your page and get familiar with it.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thank you !!

      Yes there is…. see the sidebar (on the left in the top)

      How to comment…depends on the theme I am using. As you might know by now I often change themes so its not always the same but in this theme you can click on the red heart in the right top of every post.

      I also blog in my own language and many times I alter many things… so if you can’t find the link to post a comment look for the word ‘Akkoorden’ or any other word that resembles ‘comments’ ( I will change / add necessary things in the english language)

      ABC-Wednesday is the only (weekly) post on which I get foreign visitors…

      Lovely to see you here ofcourse… and you have any questions please ask.

  15. Dina schreef:

    That’s a good recipe.
    I like and agree with your commentary about it, too.

    1. Melody schreef:

      thank you Dina….

      We all need friends, don’t we, the ones we can trust with all of our hearts and souls.

  16. Joy schreef:

    As they say – friendship doubles your joy and halves your sorrow. I have a postal friend in Finland and in their tradition valentines day is for everyone both friends and lovers. I like how the day includes everyone and the icing on the cake for me is they have special postage stamps for the celebration.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Indeed Joy, they are right 😉

      That is wonderful indeed!!

      Overhere in The Netherlands, we don’t really have a valentine-tradition but indeed the people who pay attention to it treat not only lovers but friends as wel.

  17. Pat B schreef:

    I like your recipe and the comments you shared. Friendship with others is such a wonderful blessing.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thank you Pat.

      I really could not say were I would be right now if I had not had the friends that were my lifeline in the past. So I totally agree ofcourse.

  18. Carin schreef:

    A friend or friends are essential part of meaningful life. Great choice.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Indeed they are!!

      Thank you Carin

  19. Su-sieee! Mac schreef:

    Thanks for a wonderfully positive post. I love my friends, some of whom I’ve known for over 40 and 50 years.

    1. Melody schreef:

      You are welcome…

      I do to…. the last ‘long-one’ remaining I know for almost 35 years now, the others have already passed. The ‘next-long-ones’ are 2 friends of mine, who got married after I introduced them to one and other… I know them for aprox. 20 years now…
