My blog sister, Ritu, of But I Smile Anyway has a beautiful challenge going through this Valentine month. Love is my favorite subject and how could I resist to participate as much as possible. The good thing is there are no real rules. You can choose any prompt that comes to your mind, pick any of Ritu’s suggested prompts, or use them in her order which I do. You find more information here!
Today’s prompt: Friends
As Ritu already said: Friends are the brothers and sisters we choose! I love that statement. I am blessed with many people around me I can call my friends. But there is one standing out whom I know for 35 years. When we met in school the first day there was already a bond between us and we became best friends immediately. After school, we wrote each other letters and gave them to each other the next day in school again. Or we talked on the phone for hours. Remember this was during the 80’s: No cell phones but only one home! Due to life and personal developments, our ways parted for many years. We had no problems, it just happened. But I always wrote her for birthdays and Christmas. About 15 to 16 years back the contact got closer again. She became a mom too and for about 10 years we are meeting at least once a month! Our friendship is more important to us than ever before. She knows me better than my own family. She knows all my secrets… and I know hers! We know how we function, where we come from, and where we head towards! We can be silly and totally serious! She would drop everything when I need her and so would I when she needs me. I couldn’t be more thankful for having her in my life!
In Love and Light
