|Andrea, Becky, Me, Kayce. Friends are weird together.|
Friendship is this word we throw out there casually when it's really one of the most important concepts in the human condition. You can write volumes about what friendship should be, could be, might be, but when you really know and have true friends you recognize it immediately.
Here are some examples:
|Friends have common experiences.|
|Becky and Carl who are honorary Aunt and Uncle.|
|Aunt KK sleeping with Elise while I get prescriptions filled.|
This is my friend, Kayce. She has known my kids since they were babies. She is one of my longest standing heart friends. So, KK came up here so that she could see Elise, bring Sonic, and basically let me run errands in this hospital. I had to go to another building to the pharmacy and pick up meds and meet with someone to explain them to me. I needed to pick up lunch. She sat with E while I did those things, because she loves E and she loves me. That is what friendship looks like.
While I've been at the hospital, our family friend Martie brought like the entire Sam's sale flyer to my house. Toilet paper, cereal, paper towels, snacks, granola bars, a case of coffee, paper plates and cups, and on and on. I don't know how she even fit all of that into her car. That is what friendship looks like.
Friendship has a lot of faces. I have been blessed beyond all measure with all of the people who have come into my life and stayed when things got real.
There are fifty other people I could put on this list, so if you didn't make the blog it doesn't mean we aren't friends, it means I ran out of time and space. So many people have offered to help, sent things, shown up to do things, brought food, offered to help with kids and school, and a million other things. Because after your relationship with Christ, how you resolve your interpersonal relationships is probably the most important thing you can learn to manage. I hope that you are a good friend and that you have a friend to lean on when things are hairy. I can't imagine my life without heart friends. I wish you the same.
