Ok folks. Not much time to write tonight. My girly girlfriend is moving out-of-state and we’re off soon on something of a Ta-Ta! date. Why in the world do I feel rejected?! If I were French I might think it was the language of the heart. But I’m not French so I can’t say what they’d say.
Friendship requires ongoing navigation through life. You can’t ever just sit back and expect safe waters. The close pals go far away and although they’ll always be friends, here we find ourselves, beached and sifting sand. Finding gold is thought to be infrequent I think when sifting sand.
Today my daughter told me her classmate’s father lost his job. Big ouch. She told me, “Mommy, I wish money covered the streets everywhere so no one would ever not have enough.” She hasn’t entirely learned what gives value to the dollar. Friendship is like that. Valuable and uncommon.
My friend told me once that I chose her and she chose me. It’s awesome to be chosen!
So I’m off to rub my coins together and be with my friend. She is a treasure.
Self-Care Tip #90 – Don’t forget that your friends chose you too. Be a friend to yourself.
Questions: Have you noticed that you’ve been chosen too? Please tell me your story.

I have always felt that my friends have chosen me and I have chosen them possibly even in a pre-earth life. We have always had these conversations so words not spoken between us at times are thoughts spoken between us with no questions asked. You just both know.
Diane, from now on I’m going to call you “Salty” because you’re so full of flavor. thanks much for reading and commenting. …(I was just thinking something. did u catch it?)
This post made me think about friendship once again.
True, even friendships require work, like you said, we can’t just sit back.
But its worth it in the end!
Great to connect in thought and spirit. Thanks for commenting and reading 🙂
