Today is 5 minute Fridays


Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.

Today’s word is friend

Ready….set…go….


"At some point, we'll need a little push. At another, we'll be the one who lends a hand."

The above line was from a recent blog post from my friend Mary at Play off the Page. Thank you Mary for writing the perfect definition of friendship!

I consider myself so richly blessed by my many and varied friendships. It wasn't too many years ago when I begged God for a woman to come into my life so I could have a girlfriend. I was so lonely. Oh, how lucky I am—He answered that prayer 100-fold! In the last minute of my time, here is a list of my friends:

Boy friend (my husband)
Mom friend (my mother)
Sister friend (my sisters and sisters in law)
Dearest friends (you gals know who you are)
Ladies Lunch friends (Tuesdays)
Old friends (like the song…you are gold)
Sisterhood friends (who would have thought something like cancer could connect a gal with so many instant friends.)
Chatty friends
Work friends
Shopping friends
Coffee friends
Walking friends
Blogging friends
Praying friends
Writing friends
Puppy friends
New friends(can’t wait to meet you!!)

Hmmm…I am thinking just like there is never enough chocolate…one can never have too many friends!

Stop.

Make today a day sprinkled with a little extra joy and contact a friend to say "hello!"

Kim, alright, done. Hi friend! I loved this post. It gave me good and positive thoughts to ponder. I loved your list of friends and all of the ways they come to you; great idea. I feel similarly about friends and may do a similar post at some point, reigning in all the friends in my life, whom deserve honor. :) Thanks for the neat idea, and for honoring another dear friend of mine, Mary. :) (Friends are to be shared.)
