Last week, I talked about my trip to North Carolina and how–even with the fun I had–I was glad to be home. These past few days, however, I’ve been wishing I was back there–not because of the beautiful sights, but because I miss my buddies. One of the things I miss the most are the nights we stayed up way past our bedtimes laughing and talking about who-knows-what because, you know, everything’s funnier after midnight.
In honor of the wonderful friendships I’ve made, I have created a short list of some of my favorite friendships from literature:
- Anne and Diana from Anne of Green Gables: These two are the definition of “kindred spirits.” With Anne’s flighty ways, she needed a solid and loyal friend, and she got one with Diana.
- Mole, Water Rat, Badger, and Toad from The Wind in the Willows: I love these guys! They’re always standing up for each other, protecting each other, and even keeping each other from doing stupid things. Everyone needs friends like these!
- Frodo and Sam from The Lord of the Rings: I’m pretty sure we all need a friend like Sam. Isn’t he everyone’s favorite character? One of the reasons he’s so great is because he’s loyal. He could have gone back home at any point, but he stuck by Frodo through all of the tough stuff.
- Frog and Toad from Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad Series: I only recently read through all these books, and they are hilarious! One of my favorite parts is length the two characters go to help each other as friends.
That’s all for tonight, friends! It’s a short one, but it’s getting toward my bedtime, and I need to catch up from all of the sleep I missed last week.
