friendship

February 15, 2014

ImageFrom the novel “Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace and Learning the Hard Way” by Shauna Niequist- about friendship-

“Share your life with the people you love, even if it means saving up for a ticket and going without a few things for a while to make it work. There are enough long lonely days of the same old thing, and if you let enough years pass and if you let the routine steamroll your life, you’ll wake up one day, isolated and weary, and wonder what happened to all those old friends. You’ll wonder why all you share is Christmas cards, and why life feels lonely and bone-dry. We were made to live connected and close . . .

So walk across the street, or drive across town, or fly across the country, but don’t let really intimate loving friendships become the last item on your long to-do list. Good friendships are like breakfast. You think you are too busy to eat breakfast, but then you find yourself exhausted and cranky halfway through the day, and discover that your attempt to save time totally backfired.”

XOXO friends. Thanks for all the amazing moments!

Just ordered “Bread & Wine” by Shauna Niequist- came highly recommended.
