Friends are wonderful people. Life would be so dull and boring without friends. Friends are there to help through trials, laugh with you , cry with you, pray for you, and just generally make life better.
The friends you grow up with may drift away as life takes you in different directions. Getting married brings new people into your life. Moving requires meeting new people and creating new friendships.
Email and Facebook have made it much more possible to keep long-distance friendships alive.
I have reconnected with friends from my past since facebook was invented.
My Mom used to quote this to me – ‘Make new friends, keep the old, one is silver, the other gold.’ How true.
I love making new friends. The world of blogging has added a plethora of friends to my life that I have never met but with whom I very much feel the bonds of friendship.
Old friendships are so golden. There is just something about meeting up with an old friend that you haven’t seen for a while that is wonderful. You have shared memories, you have bonds that span the space of time. You can reminisce. You can catch up on what you lives are like now.
With some old friends, you can pick up right where you left off after being separated for years. With some new friends it’s like you have been friends forever. I am so glad God created us to need friends!
These chairs came to me by way of an old friend. A friend I grew up with and spent many a fun time with. She now lives a couple of hours North of me and I haven’t seen her for years. When a friend of hers asked about getting slip covers made my friend recommended me.
The chairs were dropped off by my clients parents. I met the chairs owner when she and her husband picked them up Saturday. They are a lovely couple, it was so fun to meet them. She seems like just the kind of person who would get along well with my old friend 🙂 It was fun to have the connection of our mutual friend. Now I want to see my friend again – it’s been too long.
Friends are a blessing,
Thank you so much Lord,
Friends are a gift,
From God up on high,
You said if we needed,
You would always supply,
So thank you so much Lord,
Friends by our side.
