The other day my Word Press app indicated to me that I had a message from a reader ! With my blog and the blogging world being new to me… a new message is exciting and fun to receive ! I read the message and did not recognize the formal name! I was intrigued! I did a little investigating to learn that my comment was from a very dear friend . A friend that I have only called by nicknames. I had to laugh because if my friend would have used one of her three nicknames she has from me, I would’ve know instantly who the message was from ! The comment and support from my friend lead me to thinking of Nicknames and the roles they play!
I’ve always loved nicknames! I love to give them, have them and I like to know where and how they were generated! To me a nickname is from admiration and affection , a term of endearment ! I guess a nickname could be used negatively but I choose to believe or hope that they signify love❤️ and a memory!
A nickname or term of affection comes in many forms and fashions. Initials, animals such as a cat, reptile.bull, poultry or even zoo animals. A fruit or vegetable, a play on words and even a job description ! Nicknames can be in different languages and abbreviated. A music group, song and a memory can inspire nicknames !!!!
When I think of nicknames … I’m grateful for relationships that help me live life abundantly. I’m missing being with my family and friends. I’m ready to get out there and make memories for some more nicknames! I have a “Bos” out there that I would really like to hug right now and help her through 🙏 a rough road. I guess I’ll have to wait !!! But in the meantime….I’m reminiscing on fond memories and simpler times that a friend sparked with her support!
If you are lucky to have a fun loving Nickname!!! OWN IT!!! It is a blessing…even if it’s referring to the back hind of a horse 🐎😂 because believe it or not even that name for me I know is a term of endearment ❤️
