Life’s truest happiness
is found in friendships
we make along the way.
Recently I received this card from a friend, well actually my oldest and “bestest” friend. We met and became instant friends our first afternoon at university as we attempted to unpack our boxes and got hideously sidetracked from the task in hand by gossip and I imagine there is a fair chance a bottle of wine was also speedily sipped. I was very tempted to dig out an old photo of us both to include with this post, but given it was the 1990s, that wilderness before hair straighteners revolutionized our lives, I have opted not to.
This card really says it all – and I could probably finish this post now, but will of course continue to waffle for a little longer.
Since moving to Canada I have met and made so many lovely new friends who have made such a difference to my life here. And, of course, there are the friends who I have known for years – who e-mail or call out of the blue and just make me smile.
Friendships so well established that even after six months (or sometimes longer – quick apology here, since I am a pretty bad at keeping in regular touch) of sporadic e-mails you can pick up the phone and talk as though you saw each other yesterday.
So, essentially what I am really trying to say (and to get to the point before I am sidetracked further….) is a big thank you friends.
