My Ausome son, who is in grade one is yet to make a friend and this mama is about to make it her mission to change that, wish me luck😊, actually scratch luck.. I’m claiming it by faith🙌🏽.
They say we all need friends, even though he plays fine all by himself. A few of his classsmates have gone to his sister to introduce themselves as his best friend. I have also met a couple of kids who genuinely want to hang out with him. However, the only person close to his age that has been able to share in his world is his little brother, every one else gets ignored.🤣
You will agree with me that the younger we are, the easier it is to make friends. That’s the reason I don't want my son to miss out on this. I wish for him to experience great friendships at the age when they are mostly genuine.
Some of my fondest memories of childhood were times spent with friends....friends who didn't let ego, jealousy, strife stop us from having a good time. Who simply connected based on shared interests...you love to play a game, I love to play that game too...boom just found me a BEST FRIEND FOREVER, which is hardly "forever" and always changed of course with interests.
On the otherhand, the older one gets, friendship becomes quite complicated . I have heard people say that there are friends you have for "a reason", I still struggle with this one though, because it goes against the definition of friendship to begin with, my take on this one is that it's a"Lori Lori Club"🤣🤣, i.e. using people to your advantage. Secondly, they say some friends are for "a season", this I totally agree with because change is inevitable. People can grow apart based on individual life circumstances and several other reasons. And of course, there are friends that last a lifetime, they are very rare to come by but that is the kind of friendship that I so desperately crave for my son.
I want for him to connect with someone else that is not a family member by blood, someone who can become his family by choice. The bible says that a friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity(Proverbs 17:17).
To my Super Ausome Moms, join me in praying for at least one “friend for life” for our children. May God connect my child with the right iron that will sharpen him in Jesus name.
Always 💕💕💕 on my mind,
