What gift of friendship do your friends give you? What one word describes how they impact your life? How does your BFF(s) bless your life?
They can’t be bought or sold. Their value is far better than a mountain made of gold.
Funny how friends come into your life. Crystal is a blogger and I wish I could remember the second that we met – I’m pretty sure it was at a blogger conference. Eventually, at another blogger conference, she introduced me to her BFF Monique. Of course, we all felt the joy and bond of friendship.
I got to see Crystal and ‘Mo this past weekend when in their city for a wedding. We haven’t been together in two years but it was just like yesterday. We picked up where we left off. We gave each other grace and showed the kindness and understanding of true friends. (And Crystal did give me a lovely gift of a necklace with an orange gerbera daisy
What’s the lesson? What can we learn about friendship and being a better friend?
It’s doing a few simple things …
1. Be there for each other – in good and bad times, are you the friend who gets ‘the call?’ Be there for each other. It’s so worth it!
2. Cheer each other up – We’re there for each other in good and bad times. Be the friend who is there for her friends!
3. Make time for each other – It’s probably the littlest BIG thing you can do – make room in your busy schedule for your BFF(s). Do that and she’ll always make time for you. (And you never know when you need some girlfriend time!)
Thanks Crystal and Monique (aka: #MoCris) – for the awesome gift of your friendship! LOVE YOU BOTH! & Here they are talking about how they became friends:
