The thing about friendship is.... quiet a lot!
One year ago when I was in New York City, I asked God to show me more and more what a good friend should be like, and what a strong and healthy friendship means. Ever since then, this has become a daily adventure, as well as an everyday lesson to me.
What makes the biggest impression on me is that I would never be 'me' without those I consider as my friends today. The value that each of these friendships have, enrich my life and makes it better in every way. Now that I think about the memories that has gone by the last year, containing challenges, blessings and a bunch of joy, I sense a great gratefulness for those people that has affected my life so deeply that I wouldn't be the same without them.
You know when you laugh so much it becomes a memory you will carry with you forever ? I guess I have more of those memories now than I thought was possible...
But I also am reminded of the times shared in silence - when you sit for hours without saying or doing anything particular - and still you couldn't have a better time. And those times someone chooses to meet you with honesty and truth and it feels sharp and hurtful, but you realize it still means the world to you. and the hours of talking.. when you just need to pour your heart out and someone takes the time to listen to your words and respond to it .
"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no-one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. " eccl 4, 9-12
I guess this is Gods way of telling us we're better together? Because I've learned that friendship is such a valuable treasure - Now I'm so excited to continue share life with my amazing friends - & I'm also excited about building new relationships. After all - it may as well change change my life :)
