Friendships

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 4:47 PM
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I am so grateful for the friends that God has placed in my life. At one time I just wanted friends and wasn't interested in good, quality friends. But I learned that those friends don't help you up. They laugh and abandon you when you're down. True friends help you up when you're down physically, spiritually, or emotianally. They encourage. They share. They let you lean on them.

As moms, we need to establish and maintain healthy, equally beneficial relationships. It's not about keeping score, but about loving each other and living the mommy life together. Friends (good, godly friends) make life so much more enjoyable. In our fast-paced, child-centered lives, we often forget to focus on these relationship. However, if we remember that we are women first, and foster these relationships we will be much better moms. I know I am - thanks, ladies: for your love and laughter!

This is so true Tracy. I have always struggled making friends....maybe b/c I expected every friend to be a "real" friend. I was disappointed so often. I know I am not perfect but I certainly hope that I offer a meaningful friendship to my friends. I may fall short sometimes, but the older I get the more I realize how important those ties that bind are :).
