Friday Four: Friend Codes

Video

In elementary all through high school, I’ve always been the anti-clique.clu

I never have seen the use in hanging with other people. It always seems to be too much work just to fit in. Accountability is good, but gosh, I barely wanted to answer to my own parents.4th DeeDa

Since becoming a mom, I’ve learned the value of connections. Even more so once I started working from home. Today, I wouldn’t say that I’m cliquish, but I am grateful to have the handful of girlfriends I have. It has taken me 30 something years to find women that I like, respect  and appreciate. Without a doubt, I treasure every moment that I can spend with them; which is few and in between. In a way, I guess it’s true that with age does come wisdom.

Thank God for social media and the World Wide Web for helping me keep these relationships intact.-Kelle

For my daughters, I want them to know how to be a friend at a very young age, and find friendships where competition and insecurity are replaced by encouragement and trust. No clique, just good pals.

The bridges they build today can open up amazing doors as they get older. I hope these four nuggets of wisdom and will serve them well.

  1. True girlfriends are those who take and give in equal measure – but always remember to measure over the length of a yard and not over the length of an inch.
  2. Don’t flirt with her boyfriend, spouse or love interest.
  3. If you find a friend that can make you laugh so hard you pee….don’t let her go.
  4. Apologize when you screw up, because you will.

2 Bonus nuggets:  DIGITAL CAMERA

  1. Be trustworthy”A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.” (Proverbs 11).
  2. You have been placed in each other’s lives with great purpose. Cherish each other.

I’m watching the kids grow up so fast before my eyes…..and I like it. laws

I just told the kids that the Harlem Globetrotters were coming back to Charlotte next month.  You should have seen the look on their face! They absolutely LOVE them! 

This year they are throwing out even more tricks an surprises. I heard that this year, the world’s tour theme is  “You Write the Rules! ” It takes kid participation to a whole new level. For the first time ever, fans will decide the rules for the game that could affect the final outcome. I already voted online for my choice of basketball shenanigans, and wow it is any eye popper!

I remember the first game I went to.It was in 1997, or was it 1998…..anywhoots, I was in college at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I.. They played against our Women’s Basketball team. Talk about a blast!! After we whipped their butt, we honored them with a J-DUB ritual of dumping water on their heads. That was the worst thing we ever did.  Don’t you know those ballers chased us down OUTSIDE the gym, then dumped ice cold water back on us!! OUCH!!! Needless to say, we never did that again to ANY team we played since then.
