Not only do I love making memories with my family, I also love making them with friends. They say you are truly blessed if you have one good friend in life and I have to say, I am very rich in this area. I feel blessed to have many Godly women in my life. Women that pour into my life with their advice, wisdom, prayers, and love.
It can be very hard to keep in touch with friends so you have to really be purposeful in planning time with them, otherwise it never happens. We are all so busy with our lives and even though we care deeply for each other if it is not planned out sometimes dates with our friends don’t happen. After you get together, you are always so glad you did, you realize how much you miss this and need it in your life.
My friend Lis planned a theme for a get together last night, themes can be very fun! There were six of us girls eating dinner, laughing and sharing a gift with one another. It was a very nice time. She planned a Christmas in July dinner, we used to get together every Chrsitmas season and have dinner and exchange gifts. However, money was getting tight for us at that time, in this economy it is always tight, but we thought it would be fun to exchange in July instead. We still get together for our Christmas dinner but we are doing the gift in July now, which also gets us together another time and we love an excuse to get together again.
Ideas for get togethers with your friends:
Cooking a meal together
Themes/Some based on movies or books (my friend Dorothy does this a lot, they are so much fun)see my Jane Austin Post, 3rd part is coming soon
Homeschool planning Days (so much fun planning your homeschool schedule with another mom)
Bible studies/prayer times
Playgroups with kids
What fun things do you do with your friends?
