I'm joining Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday with the writing prompt:
As I read Lisa-Jo's post commenting on friendship growing sisters, I think in admiration, "What a gift." And although I cherish tremendously the close, authentic friendships I share in, I'm not so sure I have experienced that level of friendship myself. Maybe what I do have hinders that a little. And I wouldn't trade it. What I have makes me feel a little spoiled and very blessed.
Because I have five sisters grown into the best of friendships. We are kindred's that makes it pretty tough to compete with. We think alike. Many times we'll get together and find ourselves wearing the same color scheme. We have the same sense of humor. We laugh ourselves to tears over goofy things. We'll find ourselves tuned into the same book. We value the same things. We dream up similar things. And where we may disagree, we love unconditionally.
These are the people where, upon departure of a three-day camping trip together with our families, we call out, "Good-by-ye! See you tonight!" And we will because we have another reason to celebrate.
So whether friendships are growing sisters or the other way around, close friendships are a gift. Some are for a season. Some a lifetime. But the one thing I couldn't be more grateful for right in this moment is that the friendship with these sisters is sure to last a lifetime.
