I’ll be speaking in February at a woman’s conference in Panama City, Florida. The theme for the conference is friendship. We’ll be talking about what it means to have Almighty God as our friend, how to be friends with each other (which seems to be an issue with the female race) and the importance of having/being a mentor. These are not the session titles but the ideas that they will be based on. [Let me just pause my little blog post here and ask WHO IN THE WORLD KEEPS TAKING MY POST-IT NOTES OFF OF MY DESK AND NOT RETURNING THEM??? Is it my husband??? or my children???….of course it could be that I’ve walked off with them and left them somewhere else. Still, very frustrating though to have a thought and not be able to write it down!!]….FOUND’em!! 😉
Ok…I’ve got some ideas of my own but I wanted to ask you, what makes a good friend?? What is it that you want from a girlfriend or a mentor? Do you deal with jealousy and rivalry? Do you deal with codependency? How has a “good friend” helped you through a situation? Do you find that your friends come and go with the seasons of life? How do you feel about that??
I’m just doing some research and wanted to get some opinions. You got any?? 😉
