Fridays are for Friendship.

Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.” ~ Unknown

Knock, knock, Bam! That’s all of you, breaking down the walls.  Now granted, since I blog, we can question how high they were to begin with, but I can assure that some of the information had very high, castle type walls around it…and the walls were made of thick concrete slabs nearly indestructible.  But in your success, more walls have come tumbling down and it feels very freeing.

So today, even though I shared this on Facebook today, I want to post if for all of you today. Friendship is a beautiful thing and I have had a very lovely feeling of friendship all this week, as I hope you have as well. Friends are like family, they stay with you when the sun shines and the rain comes.  When you need to talk or when you say nothing at all. When you don’t ask for help, they offer, quietly or with a roar whichever is most appropriate and friends lift you up. If you have ever read about my childhood girlfriends, you know about them, but there are so many others that I am blessed to call friends, and some who I have only recently made that have forever cemented themselves into my heart. For it was all you friends working together that crumbled my walls and allowed me to float a bit lighter.  The funny thing about friendship is that we rarely understand just how deeply we are valued by someone so  today, I am telling you.

Thanks to everyone who has reached out, commented, reposted, liked, visited FB, retweeted tweets, it’s all just so lovely.  So this Friday, I feel like Pooh, although not nearly as wise, but I will say that as long as you’ll have me, we will be friends even longer than forever.

Happy ‘newfavoriteday.’ Friday is for friendship, and go tell all your friends old and new how much you love them for not only will they love it, you will too:)

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon
