As I do this post I am several hundred miles from home. This trip mama and I are on has confirmed some "old" friendships and some "new" friendships. Do we really grasp that to have friendships we have to be a friend? In other words, we have to work on it.
Last Friday we stopped and saw Vicki - a young lady who we had not seen since she was 15! She is now a mom of three children - a friendship from the past that was renewed. Shortly after seeing Vicki we went and saw Scott & Darla and family - for a couple of days. What a special time. I taught their boy how to bowl (Heh Heh) and advised their 18 year old daughter no dating for several years yet - oh what precious friends!
Then on Sunday at lunch mama and I met "Life Adapted" (see my blog roll) and her hub! What a precious couple. God has blessed us again with new friends.
Yesterday, Tuesday, we went to the "Sound" along the Atlantic coast line and walked the boardwalk with Ed (see my blog roll) also a friend who we met for the first time. I wept (as I am now) as I hugged Ed - he is a very special friend - now with a face.
In a few hours mama and I meet Butch (on my facebook list) and his wife. We are going out to dinner together - we are excited. THis trip/vacation would be nothing if it were not for family and friendships.
I challenge you to work on your friendships - they are precious you know! By the way how are your family relationships doing?
