Time for MOM: Spend Time with a Friend

Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 20, 2009 @ 6:11 pm In Friendship,Parenting and Family,Time for Mom | 2 Comments


My friend Jessika and I have known each other for about 15 years! It’s so fun to walk through motherhood together.

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival.” – C. S. Lewis

It’s good for mom to get out. And I’m not talking about grocery shopping and carpool driving. Sitting with a friend and talking can be a great way to decompress, sort through your thoughts, and problem solve. And a good friend will help you do this. As my good buddy Jack [5] says, a good friend gives value to survival. This definitely works for me to get through the rough spots.

Call up a friend this week and make plans to

  • have a Saturday morning out together
  • have lunch somewhere that doesn’t serve chicken fingers
  • take the kids to the park
  • get pedicures
  • go for coffee
  • hit the thrift stores, garage sales, and consignment shops
  • catch a chick flick
  • just talk about life

What do you love to do with the girls you love?
