Does anyone else find friendship a bit baffling?
Maybe it’s because we just returned to the States and are re-learning culture (and finding out friends have moved on without us – go figure, right?!). Whatever it is, I’m sure not figuring “friendship” out.
I’m at a loss.
When I read Leslie’s post on friendship, I could relate. I finally don’t feel so alone; we both have friendships that are “slow in the coming.”
“A wife and mother does not have the advantage of casually building relationships with women the way we did when we were single. Before I got married, I used to get so annoyed with the choppy conversations I’d have with moms while their children were around. Now that I have children of my own, I am still annoyed, but have realized that may be our only shot, so I’d rather feed my extrovert self with what little contact I can find than wait for perfect circumstances to connect.”
Leslie, thanks for this post~ I could relate to SO much of it. Feel free to grab the featured button below:
