Who Needs Friends, Anyway?

ME! ME! I do!! I think as I get older, and I say that lightly, I am starting to realize more and more the importance of having friends in my life. Good friends. And I'm not saying that I have been a loner forever and didn't ever think friendships were ever important. I think it is harder as you get older to make good bonds with people, meet new good friends, and even keep the old friendships that you have had alive and going.
Why can't things be simple and easy like on 'Friends'?

Well, none of them had kids, for one! They pretty much LIVED in each others apartments. Were attached at the hip. Did any of them ever really work? Their main thing was sitting in the coffee house making small talk. Oh, oh. If only life were that easy!

Going home-by myself, baby and husband free this past weekend, made me really realize that I have some amazing friends. No, we don't get to see each other all the time, but when we do, we pick right back up where we left off. I have those friends that will bend over backwards for me as I would do the same for them. Talk their ears off (because I will talk your ear off) and have no quams about it. Bless their hearts, they actually sit there and listen to everything that I have to say. Now that is patience right there. Maybe they should get a medal. We have been through our ups and downs and every which way possible. But isn't that what true friendship is all about? You can get into fights, speak you mind, tell your friend what they don't want to hear, but need to, and always be able to make up in the end. I am that hard headed, stubborn person and am thankful that I get put in my place from time to time. Of course, I may not like what I am hearing then, it is for the better.

For all friends, new, old, and even people I have met through blogging-thank you always for your wonderful support! You can't go through life alone.

I totally agree. I love my friends. We have a group of five that get together once a year and we always pick right up where we left off. Love them!

What a great post! I couldn't agree more -- where would we be without our friends? I have found that I also appreciate my friends even more now that I have a little one. Your son is absolutely adorable, by the way!

I live 3 hours away from my hometown & am living in the college town where I went to school. All my gf's have moved away for jobs or gone back home to our hometown. I miss my gf's & am so glad when we get together! And I am lucky to be meeting people in the virtual world-especially moms. I'm the only mom of my group!
