I've had a lot of thoughts in my brain about adults and friendship lately.
So I figured it was time to start organizing those thoughts and sharing them.
As adults, especially as parents, there is a lot of talk with kids about friendship and how we treat people. And there is a lot of excitement about spending time with friends and learning how to be a friend and learning how to tell if someone else is a friend.
And it's got me wondering... do we, as adults, really understand friendship? And what about how friendship changes? How it may ebb and flow? How it changes with the seasons of our lives? What about the challenges placed upon a friendship when one friend's life changes dramatically?
Last night, I had dinner with a friend that I see often and I know we would both enjoy being able to spend more time together. Lives keep us busy and schedules often keep us from hanging out.
Tonight, I'm having dinner with a friend I don't get to see often. But we just "get" each other. We go months without seeing each other but then manage to make a date for dinner or coffee and it's like we're just continuing the conversation.
I am blessed to have many friendships - and many different kinds of friendships. Let's see where this journey takes us!
