When you have a terrible cold, there's nothing more wonderful than a friend who picks you up only to take you back to her place for movie night with all the girls, because she "just wants to see you".

I'm so thankful for KC. In many of my friendships, I've felt like the one that does the most calling, the one that pursues the other just a little bit more. Always well-received when I reach out, but not quite as often on the receiving end myself. And I haven't felt unloved because of it. I've rarely even noticed. And when I have, I've reminded myself that friendships should be without expectations, yet full of anticipation. But this friendship has blessed me in a new way. It's nice to feel asked for your friendship sometimes, even though you would've given it freely anyway.

Oh my gosh, that is SO me too. So many of my friends are AWFUL at keeping in touch with people. It's been worth it to keep picking up the phone and keep trying to get in touch, but sometimes I get self-conscious and wonder if my friendship isn't as important to them as theirs is to me.

I always have to remind myself that some people just aren't as good at keeping in touch. What's really funny is that K is SO one of those people. I talk to his friends more than he does!
