The suffix “-ship”; you may not have realized that it is a suffix, meaning state of, condition and or quality when attached to base word like friend or companion. Of course there are many other words that have this suffix attached to them and the meanings can vary, however this weekend I spent time enjoying very special friendships and last weekend with loving family relationships. These moments stirred memories of my partnership with a wonderful man who gave me years of love and companionship. These are all conditions of the quality of a beautiful life filled with love, family and friends. I know a bit “deep” however, I am so thankful for the blessings of this life. When you stop to count your blessings you realize how blessed you really are.
