Friendship and Me

I found over the years, that friendship has confused me. I like the way I veiw my life and often wonder what people see in clinging friendships. I have been hurt more by having friends than not. Was I trying to make friends out of the wrong people and that's the reason I got hurt? Maybe there's more truth to that than I know.

Last night as I lie awake, staring at the ceiling, thinking about life. I was reviewing my life regarding friendship. As I thought and stared, I realized how many friends I really have, strong friends that have stood beside me without the friendship title looming over their heads. I totally missed it. When did they arrive in my life and how.

Light in the attic came on. I didn't pick them, we together picked each other. In my search for friends or lack of, I got some. Maybe we don't cling, and I think that's really important to a loner type person like me. Maybe friendship just happens, when someone steps out and opens the friendship door. I am so blessed that this happened to me and I am so glad I finally see it.

God Bless those who are my new and old friends. You know who you are. Today, I see you through different eyes. I am loving it.



  1. I love the wisdom that comes with age and experience...I think so differently now then I did in my 20's, 30's and even my 40's....more and more introspection happens with age.

  2. There is an art to friendship and it is a process that happens over time. Some of it takes effort and some of it just happens. There is at first a bond with comon interests and then in time an acceptance of even the not so attractive qualities. People may even ask, "Why do you associate with that person?" The answer is that you have taken them in to your heart, and once you do, you tend to over look their inperfections and see them only as "friend". The most important thing about a true friend, is that they will always be there for you even if you loose touch for a time, there will be no bad feelings just happiness when you reconnect with them once again. I have written a few articales about friendship as it has always been an important part of my life. I fear it will become a dying art if we do not embrace it and even promote it to the next generation, the "me generation". Thanks, Suzie Q

  3. You are loved an I am both blessed and honored to call you friend. Hugs!
