WWF—Words With Friends or WorthWhile Friends?

Now that I have left the Stone Age and entered into the modern world by becoming a smart phone user, I feel so up-to-date and in-touch with the world. I am absolutely in love with my new phone! Like most other new smart phone-users, I have gone app-crazy! There are just so many to choose from… what’s a girl to do! Among my favorites, however, is Words with Friends (or WWF as I like to call it—Words With Friends is just too long to keep repeating).

For those of you who have never played the game before, WWF is very similar to Scrabble—each player builds words based on the seven letters in his/her hand and based on the letters already placed on the board.

Not only is WWF a wonderful game to keep my mind going, it is also a fabulous way of keeping in touch with friends and family! There is a chat tool in the game where you can communicate with the other player (whether it’s to brag about your high score or complain about only having vowels). Because I am away at school most of the year, it is sometimes difficult to keep in touch with friends from home; so, the chat tool (as well as all of the technology available to us today) really helps with this dilemma.

Besides the great fun we have playing the game, my friends provide me with strength, comfort, and the ability to always help me see the best in the game of life; it is essential to maintain relationships with them. I am fortunate enough to have friends that share memories which date all the way back to elementary school and I know that they will be the ones that will be in my wedding party, the ones I will race down the halls in our wheelchairs when we are too old to keep walking. They will continue to always stick by my side for the rest of my life and I will be by theirs. Each one of my friends holds a special place in my heart.

“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.” – Bernard Meltzer

For now, we’re just happy to enjoy a few rounds of WWF!
