Lifetime Friends

Description

Renee Swope reminds us to be intentional about our friendships.

I met two women this weekend who've been friends for 60 years! I loved listening to their stories about school days, family vacations, and everything else these friends have done together. 

They talked about how they've made their friendship a priority over the years.  When they were young, they'd all get together for a meal while the kids played. Today, they have a date to play cards once a week. They’re both widows now, and count on each other for companionship.  If one of them is down, they call the other and say, "I need to get out of the house." They’re there for each other.

My friend Aimy was with me and we talked about how different our generation is.  We get so busy and we don’t tend to spend as much time together. We decided to start getting our families together once a month for dinner and games. Our friendship won’t just happen. We know we've got to take time to build it.
