December 16 – Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst? (Author: Martha Mihalick)
The thing that I realized this year about my friends is that we don’t need to talk everyday necessarily, but when “push comes to shove,” my friends are there for me when I need them.
This year I had a lot of car issues! My BSF/BFF always came through when I needed her whether it was to take me to work, pick up my step son from school or drive me a million miles away to get a key duplicated.
This year one of my long distance friends was diagnosed with cancer. This changed my perspective on the value of life and the strength of a woman.
In 2011, I would like to nurture my friendships more by scheduling regular “friend” time and I’d like to connect with more women. I’m always pleasant but I do have up a “firewall” when it comes to getting deeply connected to others.
