Niece Katie's bridal shower was tonight. It was a mix of family, friends, and church folks. This photo is Katie (second from left) with three friends she's known since middle school, all in her bridal party.
It's hard to keep friendships going, sometimes even after trying to tend to them over the years, relationships fall by the wayside. I think as we get older, we all just think people will be around if we need them, but this isn't always the case. I have good friends from high school that I used to consider close friends. Up until a few years ago I'd even still say that, but the sad reality is if I don't do the tending, there is no tending. And honestly, one-sided tending makes for weak relationships.
At what point do you just let them go?
