Pulling as one - friendship (The Gallery week 13)
Difficult this one as so many lovely photos to choose from but none of them quite appropriate for the blog as either too personal or too revealing of the participants. And I do try to keep this blog relatively impersonal, sarcasm aside.
So here is my contribution to week 13 of Tara's gallery. The topic is friendship.
I would probably expect people to say "how typical" when they see this photo, but it is emblematic to me of how friendships work: you pull together, you support each other, and you go through thick and thin, pain and glory, the good, the bad and the ugly to make things happen.
True friendship is always being there for each other in times of need.
(And if you cannot pull your weight in an eight, then you had better jump boat!)
P.S. And before you ask, LCM is at no.7 seat in the cream cap. Both myself and the stroke of the women's eight (in the navy cap) were nick-named the 'mamas in the back' as we had our first-born within 37 minutes of each other earlier that same year, after going through pregnancy together and being due on the same date. Now that's teamwork - and friendship!
