Why do you want friends?
I want friends for a few reasons. One of the biggest reasons I make friends, particularly within my ward, is that I never want anyone to feel like they have no friends. I know what that's like, and it is not fun. I never want anyone to feel that way, if I can help it.
Also, I want people to know that they can call me whenever if they are in a bind. When they think they have no one they can call, they can call me. I also know what it's like, feeling as though you have no one to call in an emergency. I want all my friends to know that they can always call me.
I'm not exactly sure why I'm like this. Maybe I just need to be needed. Although my children "need" me all day, and I get a bit weary of that at times. But it's different when it's a friend. While I'm not a huge fan of cleaning my own house, or doing my own dishes, I have no problem doing them for a friend in need. And it's actually easier to take care of my children when there are other kids over playing with them.
I also need friends, just like every other woman. I have friends on a superficial level, but I need friendships that go deeper than that. My SIL has been my best friend since before I married her brother, and I love the girl to bits. We talk on the phone frequently. But she lives 6 states away. We never see each other. It'd be nice to have bosom buddy a little closer to my bosom. As in within an hour's drive, not right on top of my chest. Ü
I guess this is also one of my favorite things about blogging. I feel much closer to some of the women I've met online than others I've known for 2 years. ♥u, girlies.
