Key 6 – Time

Friendships take time. Maybe it is the beginning of a friendship and we are spending time together in learning about one another and developing memories. Maybe if we’ve been friends for years, there is the effort, energy and time required to continue to connect and participate in one another’s lives in a meaningful way.  Time is one of the most precious commodities that we have, so to be intentional and cherish the time with friends is a practice that is enriching to the landscape of our lives.

Make new friends, keep the old

One is silver, the other is gold.

Thought to ponder: Who is a silver friend for you?  Who is a gold friend? When is the last time you’ve shared a meaningful connection with your silver and gold friends?
