It’s on evenings such as tonight that I feel truly blessed to have friends like the ones I have.. friends with whom you can spend quality time.. and not to spill out worries and aches and pains but simply spend a good few hours talking about a diversity of topics and just knowing that you feel the most comfortable in their presence.. friends who give you the choice of the place to eat or go out, who accommodate their time according to you, who call you up just to ask how you’re doing, who send you a message thousands of miles away just as they’re going off to be in the presence of God, on the most sacred of pilgrimages, to ask where you are and how you are because they miss you and they haven’t heard from you in a while.. friends who check up on you knowing you’re trying to watch what you’re eating, ever encouraging and ever trying to help you resist the temptation to succumb to sweet delights.. friends you’ve only known for a little while who ask your advice knowing that it’s ‘you’ who will help them with the information they need and no other person.. friends that you discover have been through thick and thin with you.. have travelled with you, and have helped you so much along the way, little things and big things.. new friends and old friends whom you see in a new light.. friends who know your family and you know theirs.. where it’s not a simple acquaintance but a family kind of bond, knowing you can count on them any time, all the time, every time.. friends you know you will miss, but you feel no sadness because they will leave, or you will leave, because you know that no matter the distance, the friendship and the closeness and the trust is there in a peaceful and serene kind of way.. you know that and they know that and there is no need to spell it out or explicitly talk about it, because that’s simply the way it is.. friends who are different from the childhood friends you knew, or the school friends you grew up with, or the college friends you rebelled with; they are not even work colleagues.  They are people who came across your life one way or another and fell into your path, or you fell into theirs and some sort of connection formed that is as solid as a family bond.

I am truly blessed to have such friends in my life.
