A little time spend with you ladies...

Once a year I get to spend a few days with these ladies...
and we made it happen a couple of weeks ago!

We grew up together in the youth group. I adore these ladies.
We are alot a like in our values & how we raise our kids. 
They push me to love God & serve Him.
They encourage me to love my husband & kids.
They just let me...simply be me.

I would give anything for them to live close to me again.
But for now I will cherish the time we get to 
spend together here & there.
Friendships are not easy for me. I don't require a lot of time. 
I like to be at home. I am not needy & can't handle it 
if someone who wants to be close to me is needy. 
I'm kinda a loner...introvert I guess. 

I also have had the chance to spend time with one of my 
very best friends Lana lately.
Can't begin to tell you how much I adore this lady.
While talking to her the other night I said...
"I've come to realize my good friends just don't live close to me".
And some days that makes me really sad...but I know it's true.
Now I'm not throwing a pity party or anything...Please.
It's my fault...I just have issues.
And to be honest most people can't handle being close to  a PW,
or atleast this PW. 
Don't get me wrong...I have tons of friends...people I like 
to spend time with...but I'm talking sister friend close. 

I really don't know why I'm blogging about all of this.
Just been on my mind lately...friendships. 
Sometimes I'm lonely...or dare I admit...jealous of others 
and their ability to have close friends down the street. 
But really...I will be just fine & dandy! 
I barely have time to spend with my family somedays!!

One of my friends & I would always joke and say..
"I wanna be invite, but I just really don't want to go".
True...funny & tad bit sad huh?

I am so thankful for the friends God has put into my life
even though I don't see them on a regular basis....we 
always pick up right where we left off. 

How about you? Are friendships easy for you?
Are you an introvert or extravert? 


  1. You know that we are very much alike in this. Lots of hang out friends close at hand. But my closest friends are 4 hour plane rides away. Sad but true. But I've gotten to where it doesn't bother me too much anymore. Just grateful that I have them.

    Love you, friend. I'm so glad you got this special time with your buddies!

  2. I love that you got to spend time with your childhood gal-pals!!! What a blessing!! I thank God for good friends, too... ESPECIALLY YOU!!! Love you, Girl!!!

  3. I think that it makes us cherish our friendship all the more because we are apart but it also makes me realize how much fun we will have when we spend eternity on the other side! It also makes me think how much harder it was for Paul and those guys back in the day when they couldn't just get a text or an email! I love you and thank God for your friendship!!
