Friend J has a daughter, I have a son. Her daughter is only 3 months older than my son; the kids are at similar age, so they can play together well. In this way, J and I have a lot of topics to chitchat, and most of them are about kids.
J and I become good friends not only because of the topics about the kids, but also attributing to her great personality.
The first time we met was in our church. I was new there back then. When J was introduced to me, similar upbringing background helped us to have a good talk for about ten minutes. When it was time to go, J invited me and my family to her house for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised and accepted her invitation. Since then, I trusted in her sincerity.
We take turns to serve the children at the church. Sometimes we serve together. During the serving, J showed her caring character. She takes care of the young kids with pure heart, which makes her own daughter feel jealous a lot. 🙂
During Church meeting, when we sit side by side, people usually ask, “Are you two sisters?” From their tone I guess J and I look similar in some way, either by looks or by disposition. Either way, I am happy to hear they asking.
J and I are good friends, but first of all, we are sisters in the body of Jesus Christ.
