Well some might say that friends come and go
I don't usually say that, but I hear it all the time...
Brandon always asks me why I want more friends.
"we barely get to see the ones we really like" he always says.
I have been thinking a lot this summer about friendship
What does it really mean?
I have had friends that I have had my WHOLE life,
whom I KNOW will be my friends FOREVER...
One's that I can think of RIGHT off the top of my head
and they know who they are.
THEN there are those friends you meet along the way and have a special connection with.
There are some that have an impact on you,
or ones that YOU impact....
I have learned that I am the friend that will always CARE,
not because I want you to THINK that I care,
NOT because that I think its the "right" thing to do,
because I find myself CARING about these people
that I have only been friends with for a short period of time.
I think about them, I hope they are doing okay and I pray for them when their life is rough.
Some of them I don't know if I will ever see again, or in the near future at least...
But then I wonder, is it all about effort?
Does it matter if I ever see them again?
Am I still considered a good friend if its only long distance?
I don't know yet.
why I am down here on earth, why not give it some effort?
I know I sound Cheesy right now,
but I am totally PAST the point of caring, If you can't tell.
So I made this friend out here in Oklahoma.
In the beginning I thought she would be fun to hang out with
We both have 3 kids
We share the same religious beliefs
My husband is from the same town as she and her husband are from
We are close to the same age...
it was perfect to have someone like that to PASS the time while Brandon was at work
Her name is Leah.
She QUICKLY changed from someone
who I just thought was fun and cool
I make friends fairly quickly I know that,
you can't find friends that you
I think in the short time she was here,
she's become someone that I could tell anything to.
Share secrets with
Be silly with
and feel comfortable
someone I could TRUST.
Its hard to find somebody that you can feel that comfortable around
besides your spouse, kids siblings or parents.
Not only did I think she was wonderful and like a sister that I never had
I started to love her kids too.
Yes, I love kids,
but they were such cuties and my boys played with them everyday.
She left yesterday.
Now its just me and the kiddos all day.
I miss my friend.
