Be the Friend You Wish You Had!

Be the friend you wish you had and never take the ones you have for granted.

This past week, I had the pleasure to reunite with a long time friend of mine. She came to visit us from Texas along with her husband, and little baby girl of two months. Best friends reunite! We finally got to hold each other’s babies who are only 7 weeks apart! I only wish she lived closer.

It was great to just to all be together and talk, laugh etc. We talked about how things happen in life in interesting ways. For my loyal readers, you’ve read by now on my blog how I discussed friendships and the more difficult it becomes to have or keep friends around once married or once you have children. It is hard to understand why or how certain friendships simply do not last all the way into adulthood, but it happens more than often.

This friend of mine here, I’ve known her since high school. The funny thing is that I did not like her much when I first met her. We were introduced by my then best friend.  Long story short,  From high school, through college, marriage, and now motherhood, we’ve been there for each other. Today, we are both wives, mothers, and women of faith.

It is not about how many friends one has, but more so about the value of those friendships.

I thank God for the friends he’s blessed me with. My prayer is that God keeps us in each other’s lives for as long as possible! Sometimes we don’t realize the value of certain friendships until it is too late. I can attest to that personally.

As we discussed different topics during her visit, we both realized that we had lost many friends over the years, but that we were okay with it. If you are personally struggling with being a new mom without any “mom friends”, know that this is common. Many of us are going through the same thing, myself included. My advice is to just be patient. Sometimes we make friends in the most unexpected encounters.  So I encourage you all to be the friend you wish you had and never take the ones you have for granted.

Love is You

Today is a very special day for me! It is our second anniversary! It’s been two years since we said “I do.” I love the picture above because it pretty much sums up our life together: a whole load of fun. We have been together for six years, but married for two. Our love continues to grow daily, and I couldn’t be any happier. “They” say the first two years are the toughest. From learning to live with each other, and adapting to the new life as “one.” I’m glad that we have made it two years, and we couldn’t have […]

Love Unexpected

Love unexpected.  That’s how it should be. Stop chasing after love and let it come to you naturally. Love has a funny way of finding us if we just stop looking for a moment. Focus on yourself while in waiting.  Finish school, establish your career, travel the world…. Do as you wish, and love will come find you at the right and perfect timing. Happy New Year!

Some friends aren’t good at handling the success of others.

Accept this: some people just move on. Most of my “friends” are no longer a part of my life since I got married and moved away almost two years ago.  To add to the list, I now have a newborn! Sometimes it’s hard to accept our new circumstances. I ask myself if I’ve done something wrong or is it because I moved to a different state, but I realized that I’ve done everything right. I’m at a good place in life and I thank God for it.  Some friends aren’t good at handling the success of others, so they walk […]
