I was so excited to see the kids come home from school yesterday. Since last week was spent mostly in orientation they only stayed in school for half a day therefore not giving them a whole lot of time to mingle with their classmates. So, after spending the whole day in school yesterday they had plenty of stories to share mostly about their friends. They were happy that they had a couple of buddies in their homeroom and proud that they made new ones, too.
And as I went to work in my craft area last night I was inspired to make some friendship cards.
Am sure like me you have different sets of friends whom you met along the different stages of your life. There are our childhood friends, high school friends, college friends, work friends, friends from the various organizations we've joined and many more.
However, like all things in life nothing is permanent friendships included. It is a sad reality that friends come and go in our lives. Nevertheless, there are those special ones whom we've remained in touch with for who knows how long. They are the ones who've stuck it out with us in good times and bad and vice versa. They've become a constant mainstay in our lives that even our extended family knows them.
And when life takes over and you don't get to see or talk to each other as much as you used to it's okay because you are both confident enough to know that you can count on your friendship anytime.
