What is one thing that you absolutely love about friendships? Why? On the other side, what is one thing that you find absolutely difficult when it comes to friendships? Why?
I love that you can share anything with a friend. You can just let it all hang out… the good, the bad and the ugly. I love that you can laugh with a friend (I mean those uncontrollable giggles as if you were back in high school together). I love that you can share life with a friend; the sorrows and the joys. I love that my friends pray with me and for me. I love that even when I think I am, I’m not so alone. I love that God has made us for relationships. And I love that He provides us with relationships/friendships (and sometimes in the most unlikely places).
– Oops, that was more than one thing. –
Despite how great a thing friendship is… friendships can be so challenging to maintain. They take time (enough said, right). I can get so caught up in my own life and kids and seriously not speak to another soul all week. Maintaining friendships has to be deliberate, I have to make and schedule TIME (both with and without the rug rats). And let me tell you, that can be difficult.
