“Friends are family we choose for ourselves.”
What do you think of when you think a friend? Who do you think of?
Life is often hectic and crazy. It can be hard to find time to spend with friends. I cherish the friends that I have made and do try make the friendships work. I love to see my friends smile and laugh, that’s what makes life fun!
I was out with a friend last night that was upset that her closest friend has been avoiding her. This bothered me. Life is too short to let things get in the way. If there is a problem tell the person so you can work it out and move on or decide that maybe they are not someone you need in your life. To my friend from last night, I am so happy for your new life decisions, your courage is makes me smile and I will always have your back!
In high school we had a small group that all hung out, well over the years we have all drifted apart. One person from this group was jealous that Amanda and I were such good friends after all the years. Our response “we work at it”. Friendship is a give and take. Amanda has been gone from the area for some time now (I don’t wanna remind myself how long ago we graduated) We had grown apart for a bit but have found a way to come back together. She is that person that I know(well besides Eric) I can tell anything too and I will get brutally honest answer (love her or hate her she shares her opinion, and I admire that!) It is nice to have people in my life like that. I know some of you would say if we had children things would be different but I really doubt that, we are going to grow old together.
So I was just hoping to remind some people who it is important to have friends in your life. I have many different groups of friends and I cherish each group young and old. I try to make time for dinners, emails, random FB messages, silly text, send REAL mail and weird packages. A few seconds to think of others could change someones day. Here is a radom collect of my friends and the times we have shared. There are WAY too many to post!
ps- it would be nice if my friends stepped up and planned things once in a while. Although it is nice being the ring leader sometimes.
