Who Do You Live Life With?

Who Do You Live Life With I write this after a full weekend friendcation at Oak Haven Resort in Tennessee. It’s not always easy to arrange schedules of busy women but we were able to make it happen. We spent a few days and nights of eating well, a wild game of cards of humanity, hiking, deep (and not so deep conversations), a bonfire with an awesome drink and simply being. During one of our conversations, a friend described her relationship with her mother in the following sentence. “Mom and I lived life together.”  This struck me as a wonderful way to describe a relationship. Life is meant to be lived and it is most certainly meant to be lived with others (beyond your spouse or partner).  When one discusses living rather than existing, it is equally important to question who are you living this life with? Do you enjoy the people you encounter on a daily basis? Do you regularly make plans to spend time with those that are significant to you? Are there people in your life that make you happy and a better person?

Today I’m linking up with Emily’s Grateful Heart Monday. I’m grateful for the friends in my life who include me as part of their world and I hope they know how much they mean to me.

Who are you living your life with?

    Sounds like a beautiful weekend. I love simple reminders like this, thank you!

    This is beautiful. I live my life with my people, my family! Spouse, daughters, son-in-laws and grandchildren. Every. Single. One.

    What a great reminder!! I love this 🙂 I could certainly do with regularly spending time with those significant to me…so many live so far away, it’s a challenge – but even a regular Skype date would be great!

      Rebecca, it can be a challenge in regards to scheduling. My friend’s statement just made me think about how so many people live their days without spending it truly with the people they want to spend time with the most. Thank Goodness for Skype an other types of technology. It can certainly help with keeping connected. Thanks for stopping by.

    🙂 This made me smile. For one, I love the idea of what it means to “live life” with someone. I’m also so glad you had that time to live life with your girl friends! Memories made in those times are so precious!

      I was so taken by her statement that I had to write about it. There is such a difference in being with someone and “living life” with them. I wasn’t blessed with biological sisters but God provided me with them in the form of my friends.
