Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match #friendship

This post was written in response to Ben Huberman’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is A Good Match   Join in!

I’m fortunate enough to have quite a few best friends, who have become special to me over the years. The negative aspect is that many of them live far away, and by far I mean a plane trip away, so I don’t see them as often as I’d like to.

Gabriela and Lucy at a staff meeting last June.

Gabriela is one of the best friends I miss. We’ve been friends and colleagues for about ten years. When I met Gabriela,  she was single and footloose and fancy free! Now she has a wonderful husband and two lovely children. Since then we go put even more because her children and my grandchildren are the same age and they get on famously, so we go on plenty of outings together and have fun with the children.

But this year she’s working in Iowa and I live in the south of Spain, so although we skype and chat on whatsapp frequently, we’re living on different continents, and I miss her a lot.


I miss her laughter, the shared coffees at school breaks, writing up reports together and preparing activities with our students.

I also miss baking biscuits with her, taking the children to the fun fair, and going to the cinema together.

We’re definitely a good match, probably even a great match. I know she’s also missing her family and friends in Spain, so she’s going to love reading this post.💗

Fortunately she’s coming to Spain for  short break next month, so I can stop missing her for a short time!

She cheers me up when I’m fed up, she listens and consoles me when I’m feeling annoyed, and she encourages me when I want to give up, and I do the same for her. 

I don’t know what I’d do without my best friends, and you?
