cafe chat

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 having people to talk to… love hearing about their lives and families. I love meeting for lunch and talking and talking. It’s great to have someone to call when you have something good going on you want to share, or something bad you want to get another perspective about.

I love my internet friends. I love visiting their lives almost daily and having them visit me. It is so fun to finally meet a couple of those friends. It was like we had been friends for so long! It’s strange to explain to non-bloggers….but bloggy friends are great friends!

I guess the main difficulty I have with friendship is finding time to enjoy my friends. Julie was in town last week and I didn’t get to see her as much as I would have liked… Mendy called and left a message last week and I haven’t had a chance to call and talk to her yet. I did have lunch with Melody but hadn’t seen her in a long time. I haven’t seen Jana since her birthday in February. She even lives in Oklahoma! Laura and I have a standing lunch date because our birthdays are very close… but I haven’t seen her in a while either. I see my friends who go to church more often than anyone I guess. And then there are my friends who are in house… Matt and the kids. They are fun to be around. My mom and dad and brother Mike and his wife Terri are great friends too.

    I agree that it’s so hard to find time for everyone. I sometimes feel like I’m letting people down, but I believe that “friends” understand.
    blessings to you…

    Perspective is oh so important. I forgot to add that to my post. Friends are good at snapping you back into reality sometimes.

    It is very difficult to explain to non-bloggers about these friendships, isn’t it.

    Friends are so important.

    I know what you mean about trying to find time to meet friends! And I am glad that I have friends that realise that it is difficult to meet up sometimes, but at the same time I still feel that I should do more as these ARE my friends!!

    I so understand about limited opportunities to be with real life friends! Like you, I see my church friends the most because I spend a lot of time there! 🙂
