When you really sit down and think about your friends and friendship, what comes to mind? For me I have my childhood friends, my school friends, work friends (old and new), and my mama friends. I’m happy to say that most of us keep in touch with one another, and even if we don’t when we see each other after months or years have past, it’s as if we picked up from where we left off. I hold each and every one of these relationships close to my heart. I make the effort to keep in touch with them, even though my daily schedule is hectic. A quick text or phone call here and there to know I am thinking about them is always on the top of my list.
This new video by Friendship Dairies, literally brought tears to my eyes. They teamed up with a real mom for a little social experiment. This mom desperately asked her friends to help her do a last-minute, very unpleasant task in an attempt to see if her true friends would really step up to the plate. You’ll have to finish watching the video to see if all of her eight friends showed up, but the video showcases the true power of friendship and the unexpected rewards that often come with going above and beyond for someone in need.
I really love that Friendship Dairies is bringing up the topic of friendship and how powerful it is, especially for moms. There have been plenty of times, a friend has called me asking for a favor, has just lost a loved one, or just needed someone to vent to. I know that through the years, I would never say no to my true friends, and always be there for them– because it’s sometimes the little things we do life that have the greatest impacts. I am also determined to teach my children about what it means to be a true friend!
A dear friend of mine, my children actually call “Aunt” Julie. Why because she is one of my closest friends ever, that we are practically sisters. In fact, we see each other so much, and even look like we can be related because we have similar features– both of our doormen think we are sisters. It’s pretty funny! But I know that if I have ever called Julie for an emergency or even if I need a simple coffee chat, she would make the time for me in a heartbeat despite the fact she too is raising two children, one being a newborn. In fact, it happened just the other day when I needed a bit of advice from her. She showed up to the coffee shop practically in pajamas with a baby strapped on her, just because I needed her. And that to me is a true friend, and I couldn’t be more lucky to have her in our life.

Friendship is one of the most powerful things we will ever have in our lives. The power of friendship can take us through almost anything, and those relationships need to be cultivate and appreciated.
It’s really sweet that you have such close friends who are always there for you. It’s so important to have those kinds of connections with people.
Nothing beats the power of true friendship. You look like you have surrounded yourself with some pretty lovely friends. I’m going 20 years strong with my bestie and I don’t think there’s a thing I wouldn’t do for her or her for me.
True friends are so important. I don’t know what I would do without my best friends.
There’s nothing like friends that will accompany you through the journey that we call life. It’s really nice to recognize these friendships, it will make you cherish your friends more!
I have lost and gained friends along the way but I have those that I’m keeping for life. Friendships are amazing and an important part of life as well. I think it’s just right that we celebrate them.
Friendships are sooo important, especially those that no matter how often you see in person it’s like no time has passed.
I was glad to see that all of her friends showed up! It is so important to have those solid relationships that get you through the tough times. I try to always be there for my true friends and give them love and support when they need it.
You girls all look so great together. What you have is indeed very special!
I love seeing this. So many people just toss friends like they are nothing. Hang on to this for sure.
This post made me miss my childhood friends so much! After each and every one of us moved away, started our own families, it is only through social media that we get to connect with each other. I know that friendship can never be replaced. They are like my sisters and brothers from a different mother and father!
