Wave or Octopus?!?!

I saw another blogger share this photo the other day…

And at first I just found it to be hilarious. Then I was thinking about it… this is so similar to something I’ve said recently. Some friends are seasonal friends (waves) and some are forever friends (octopus). This opened up some neat opportunity for conversations with my almost 12 year old daughter to talk about friendships. Some friends are only around for a season and that’s okay. We need to be thankful, pray for them and move on. The Lord may allow them to come back later, but for now… let go.

A bit later, I saw this posted.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about being “Amazing Octopus” at first. Then I remembered the waves & octopus meme above. I’m perfectly okay with being an amazing octopus! Sticking to my friends faces!! It kinda goes along with my intentional post from the other day!!
