Recently I have received some friendship booster shots, and I'm so grateful! Sometimes we get so busy as adults (and especially leaders) and we get into so much of a
Both these ladies are friends of mine and they've given me a friendship booster shot! Quite unplanned, we've gotten to do some fun things together lately!
My friend Amy is from Texas and we've been online friends from blogging since about 2009! We graduated to Facebook and Instagram in our friendship. We finally got to meet in person when her husband had some business near my city. It was so great to get to know each other better and talk about all the things that we sometimes won't share online. I'm happy to say she's my sister in Christ and we share so many similarities. Looking forward to another time to get together and we'll bring our husbands along!
Patty and I are friends because our kids are friends! She did the chalk work on this sign for me recently! Both our sons were good friends in elementary through high school and all loved music. They performed together and spent many a weekend night having fun together. She's also a sister in Christ at a church across town, but we hadn't seen each other much since the boys graduated. Recently we reconnected with my son's wedding, then she joined my exercise class, then her oldest son's band was here to perform and of course, like a Mama Bear, I had to go support him! It's been great to spend more time with her and her husband recently.
Does fear keep you from seeking friendship? It's really the bottom line for me, I think. Fear of rejection. I hope I can remember how enjoyable these times have been recently and get out there and make some new friends and maintain the old ones. :)
