top 2 tuesday: Friendships

Today is supposed to the be coldest day of the year here in Texas. Last night I heard it is supposed to be in the teens. Ok, seriously?!?!? I didn't sign up for this!!! Some huge cold front is coming in for the next few days. I am thinking of bundling up just to go from my house to the car to the inside of work because well I believe that 14 degrees, yup you heard me correctly...14, is just bone chilling cold. You think?

I linked up with Taylor, go check her out and do the same :)

Top 2 Things You've Learned About Friendships

{1} Just because you don't talk daily or even weekly doesn't mean you don't love each other or care about each other. Life happens. It gets busy. But even after a week or two or even a month, we can catch up right where we left off.

{2} You don't need a lot of friends, just a few close ones.

{3} You can live cities apart and even states apart and still be the best of friends. Thank the Lord for phones, emails, texting, planes :)

{4} Your friends are your family.  

{5} Those that only care about themselves and only talk about themselves are not worth investing a friendship with.

{6} Friendships are two sides and take a lot of work, but it is definitely worth it!!

{7} Guys and girls can't be friends. My dad always told me this growing up and I never believed him until I was in college. I just don't think it works. Someone always gets feelings for the other. Someone's heart always gets broken. Someone's significant other always gets jealous.

Ok, well that was a top 7 tuesday for me. I guess I got a little carried away :)

Love, love, love all your points. I've been a long time believe that "Friends are the family God forgot to give us" && "Friends are the family you choose for yourself"

Love, Ainslee http://loveainslee.blogspot.com/

It's just as cold up here in central Washington State. I guess the only difference is that it's expected to be this cold in February.

Numbers 1, 3, and 4 are me and my 2 best friends. :)

I disagree with number 7. I don't have guy friends myself (it's what I get for being shy) but both of my younger brothers have friends who are girls and those relationships work out just fine. The middle boy is even friends with most of his exes because they were friends before dating. Mutual break-ups I guess.

Great lists and love the pictures.

I love your top 7! : ) My friends and I all live far apart now, but we are still just as close as ever! When we get back together, it's like we were never separated!! I agree with number 7, too!! Guys and girls can be casual friends, but not close friends. Someone always get jealous!
