Friends

In just one weekend, I had two people mention how they don’t have friends. 

This got me thinking about how our lives are so rushed, that we don’t even have time to connect with others.  We see so many people, yet there is no time to work on a relationship.

We say, “Hallo, how are you” and really hope they will answer with “Good thanks”, without further conversation as we rush to the next appointment, homework, sport or whatever.

It’s sad.  Friendship is so important.  It is so important to have someone outside the family to share emotions with.   To go for a cup of coffee that turns into lunch.

There is just no time for that.

I’m going to make a point of trying to make time for these two people.  I don’t know when or how but I’ll try. 

Thank goodness for text messages.  Better than nothing right?!

    So true! Aaron & I were just talking about that with our own relationship. We get complacent with our lives & busy and don’t make time for one another. We are really trying to make more time to spend together….date night, watching movies or just handing out after the kids are in bed. 🙂
