I manage many kinds of relationships, including those with my children, my siblings, and my cousins. All of these are important to me but the relationships I have with my friends take a different kind of handling.
I find it difficult to tend to my friendships the way I would like to. Everyone seems to be going through so much and even with the help of facebook my friends rarely share their troubles there.
I have friends who are battling illnesses, taking care of aging parents, parenting grown children who have lost their way, and the list goes on.
I find that in these days of an abundance of communication possibilities, a short text or email just to remind them that you care is a great way to strengthen the bond.
