Brothers, Sisters, and Friendship

It's hard to believe that it is already October. I mean, really? Where did this year go? As crappy as it has been at times it has flown by. Life is moving right along for me. I am looking forward to having the kids in 2 weeks for a full week. They have a fall break at their school. Jude has already mentioned who he wants to see while he is back in Ohio. Not sure we will be able to see everyone but I will certainly try. I have some plans for them while they are up here. I would like to have a nice picture taken of us. I don't really have a family portrait so that is on my list of things to do and also we will be heading to my mom's house the 2nd weekend they are here. I doubt I will see them much since they will be off in the woods with their cousins.

I was talking to someone about friends and friendship the other day. I couldn't remember the verse I wanted to share about friends but after some searching I finally found what I was looking for.

"Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family." Proverbs 18:24 The Message.

We were talking about her and her one friend that has become like a sister to her. I said she was lucky to have a friend like that since in life it doesn't happen very often. I have had friends come and go in my life. And for whatever reason I have lost touch with them over the years. Of course it doesn't help to move to Texas for a couple of years and then back to Ohio. I think the distance didn't help with keeping in touch with friends in Ohio or the new one's I made while in Texas. I have never been one to have a bunch a friends at one time. In high school I tended to hang out with a few people at a time. This scenario has followed me into adulthood. I have been pretty content to go about life my own way. There have, however, been times that I have felt pretty lonely. Looking back those are the times I probably wasn't very close to God
