Friday Five: Friends

Ever since I found out I could be the hostess for the third Friday Five of each month, I have not been able to get the thought of friends out of my mind. Being an only child (all growed up) who moved around a lot in my lifetime, friends have always been very important to me. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote: "The way to have a friend is to be a friend."

So today let's write about the different kinds of friends we have, like childhood friends, lost friends, tennis friends, work friends, and the list goes on. List 5 different types of friends you have had in your life and what they were/are like.

As a bonus, put a link to a new (to you) blogging friend and introduce us!

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation in the comment box: what you want the link to say goes here. For a complete how-to, click here.

  8. As I was making my contribution to this week's Friday Five I realised just what a therapeutic process it is. It really gives all participants to positively reflect on life. Thank you for letting me take part.

  17. The length of my post might indicate that I have a LOT of friends, but really I just have a lot to say about the ones I have. I am blessed.

  18. Friends - me too only child.
    1. Fast friends. You meet someone and you feel already familiar
    2. Roommate friends. "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine ". Gloria's words.
    3. Forever friends. Neither time nor distance makes you feel apart. You take up being together in the now of life
    4. Literary friends. Characters in fine writing real or fiction who fit into your life and bring you comfort and joy whenever you need it.
    5. Partners. They totally GET you! No words necessary. All words with clarity willing to be Honest no matter the risk. Will laugh and cry with and for you

  22. I did not have time to do justice to this, but note that as an only child myself who moved around a lot I identify with your perspective. I have had school friends, work friends, and family friends. Lately the most important have been seminary friends and I have found these are the best and hardest to part with as we engage in the comings and goings of the never-ending Lutheran diaspora known as seminary education.
