I've been thinking a lot lately about the forming of friendships. Certainly, to some degree, friendship follows function - we become friends with those we work with - but in those cases, it sure seems like the relationship is often just task related. When the natural connector (the job, the church, etc) dissolves...is there anything left? And if not - was there ever a relationship or just an 'arrangement'? I am at a point where I'm not looking to build relationships based on what people can do for me, nor do I want to do party tricks to gain the affirmation of others. There's got to be more.
I'm feeling a little rough today...went to the prayer room early but came home to rest and slept almost 3 hrs.
