I got to hang out with my friend today, and as we chatted I was really grateful for friends and really good friends in particular. They make the best counsellor, cheerleader and honest sounding board that a girl could wish for. I enjoy that Jasmine got to play with my friend's daughter whilst we chatted over coffee. I wonder if they will continue to be friends over the coming years, and I realize that these childhood friendships are as precious as my own now. I need to nurture the friendships that are beginning in my children's young lives. And I hope and pray that these new friendships become old friendships. I love that when I hang out with these girls, that there doesn't have to be anything fake or showy. I am uniquely made, and I can bring that to my friendships, and enjoy each and every person that comes in to my life for their unique qualities. Note to self - I must remember to spend time with my friends more often. There's always time to pause long enough for friendship.
