Friends are like pancakes.
Making the first one is hardest and sometimes has to be tossed (or in this case eaten).
They come in all kinds of shapes
colors and sizes
and sometimes they even come with little ones.
The thing they all require is attention, patience and often, sacrifice.
I’ve been struggling in the friendship area lately. Keeping old friends and making new ones in this season of my life is difficult. I find myself unable and unwilling (sometimes) to give attention to those who don’t give at least the same level of care and attention back to me.
And I know that for the most part, this is wrong. Proverbs 17:17 says: A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
My New Year’s resolution is to take the attention, patience and sacrifice necessary to reconnect with some old friends, and make new ones. Hopefully, I’ll make some new sisters in the process.
If I’ve neglected our friendship over the past year, I apologize. And if we haven’t met yet, then I’ll try not to disappoint you.
What about you? How do you feel about your friendships…or pancakes?
