Friends are like a quilt with lots of different shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns of fabric. But the end result brings you warmth and comfort in a support system that makes your life richer and fuller”. Suzanne Dale Ezell

This morning, one of my friends shared that quote about friendship with me.  As I reflect on it, I realize, how blessed I have been to have the most amazing friends in my life. They are different and special to me.  I will forever treasure their friendship.

My sister-in-law Natacha is the sister that I was longing for and was so blessed to have in my life,

My two besties we go beyond friendship.  I met Nadeje in Highschool and Marie-Esther in College and they are the true definition of friendship.

My wonderful sister-in-law Sheila is a true gift from God.

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.  Muhammad Ali


Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. Anaïs Nin

I would love to read your quote about friendship and share which friend that quote reminds you.


  1. That’s so awesome that you have found such amazing friends. Friendship is such an important part of our anatomy as women. I have struggled with it but found the ones who stick with you through thick and thin are something worth holding onto!

  2. I haven’t heard that quote before, but I really like it! I’ve seen some about how friends are in your life for a reason, some are there for life and others for a short time. I don’t remember the exact quotes, but it’s so true and I have to remember that when friendships fade away. My sister, even with how much we argued growing up, is one of my best friends. The other I’ve known even longer than my sister, we’ve been friends since I was days old since our moms have been friends since middle school.

  3. What a beautiful quote, and a beautiful post. I haven’t kept much contact with friends that I went to school with, but I’ve made some new friends that are very dear to my heart. True friends are so important.

  4. I have a best friend from college and she’s “my person” — 13 years and going strong. I can’t image my life without her.

  5. I love my friends but we could not make time for each other. your post really inspires me. I’m calling them right away!

  6. I always remember ‘you can choose your friends, not your family’ and it’s so true. I made a huge effort of shedding the ‘Friends’ I made at school in my teens, it was only at uni I realised what true friends were and am still great friends with them to this day. Your friends sound wonderful, I’m so happy you have a great support network.

    • I agree with you, Kat, we will meet a lot of people, but our true friends are special people that hold special places in our lives.

    • I agree with you Msddah, we will have a lot of people in our lives, but true friends are rare and we should treasure them.
