For today's McLinky Monday The Real Housewives of Oklahoma question is "What are the top 5 qualities that are most important in your friendships?"
Friendships have changed for me over the years. I haven't always been a good friend and I haven't always had good friends. As I have matured I think I'm a better than friend in my 40's than I was in my 20's. So, I'm not sure I can answer the question. I do know this:
If you have ever been through a divorce, financial troubles or some other tough issues then you have found out who are your true friends. The most important quality in a friendship to me is someone who just sticks around. I know God will always be there for me and my family, but I have lost a few friends on life's journey. People face the same issues but at different times in their lives. This affects friendships.
I may not have picked the best friends to begin with. If you feel like the friendship is work its not a friendship. I had a friend and I was the one calling her or going by to see her. She never did the same. I finally figured out that she wasn't really my friend. I'm felt foolish. After 8 years I finally stopped calling her or emailing her. I'm a slow learner. Of course she has never reached out to me.
I have two friends that have come to see me and as we were visiting they both folded all my clean laundry that was on my couch. Now that's a friend!!!
if you haven't talk to a friend in awhile and you cry when you hear their voice that is a true friend.
