3 Ways to Be a Better Friend

3-Ways-Better-Friend

When you were younger, difficult times among girlfriends didn’t add up to anything more than liking the same boy at the same time. Difficult times nowadays add up to a whole lot more. What do you tell a friend whose husband just lost his job? How do you console a friend you consider to be a sister when her mother dies? What words are there to say when your friend is having a hard time in her marriage?

It’s no longer hair braiding and crushes; it’s more like spa days and commitment. The relationships we have with our girlfriends is ever evolving and it isn’t always easy for us to change.Yet, things do change. Life changes, but the bond you share with your good friends doesn’t have to change.

Listen to your inner voice and you’ll find the words and wisdom to support a friend in need. Keep your head strong, your hand steady and your heart open. You’ll find even in the face of new hurdles, by being a good friend, friendships will ultimately sustain you.

Gal Pals

They're the ones that I can count on,
sure as the beads on an abacus.
It is miraculous to me
how You fit them into my life:
the childhood friend,
the college roommate,
the confidante,
the sisters by birth
and by marriage.
Treasures, all...
a profusion much greater
than one woman deserves.
Thank You for the bonds
forged by women's hearts,
for tangible evidence
of Your enduring love.
Knowing You could not
be present in flesh,
You sent me those
who can and are.

-Lori Strawn
