Kids' Friendship

Do you realize that most kids are so easy to make friends?

For example, my bestfriend at univ came to visit us last month. She brought her 2 boys with her. We're travelling together and they all stayed at our home for 3 days. My little boy -Ian- could make friend to her son -Rama- immediately. Although they're 5 years apart in aged and don't speak fluently in the same language (both of them used to speak mix in English-Indonesian) they become closer and closer every day. Whenever we're travelling by 2 cars, Ian chosed to sit in the same car with Rama. They sleep together, too.

When they're leaving, I know Ian was sad (like me :b). Now almost a month had over, Ian still missed his new found best friend. Sometimes when he feel that way, he speak to me and imitate the way Rama talks when playing.
I think adults rarely can make bestfriends in just 3 days. We can learn their spirit in making new friends.

I wish as an adults we could simply bring friendship back to the simple place in life were we trust and grow... I am home now and I have a lot less female friends and I want more... but I am not sure how to make new friendships... it all seems so complex

I hope your week is going well...

Shelly,
I wish the same. We often think complicated before doing simple things.
