You know it’s time to write when you miss sitting on your table with your laptop in front of you. Few days back I shared with a fellow blogger friend how bizzarely my page views per day would cross more than 100 or 200 yet no one would bother to leave a comment. Indeed chocolates are to chocoholics what comments are to us bloggers. So as much as I wish to say that this post is solely for my special friends (people who have made a special difference in my lives so far) its also to share what friendship means to me....
I learnt a few years back the full form of F.R.I.E.N.D.: Few relationships in life never end.
This Friendship’s Day was
a special one very special one! In the last one year I met some wonderful souls, bright, cheerful, caring, kind, giving. As much as their acumen impressed me it was their sweet hearts which drew me closer to call them that ‘special’ friend. While one hot chick. Vrinda, much younger to me always brings my teen years back, there is this bestie from school ( who goes by the name Srishti) who knows how to truly give. All these years I learnt how she was there to stand by her friends when they desperately needed her even as she was in pain which she would never get reflected in any way.
I have often wondered how these wonderful people have the capacities to be by themselves in their depressing and heart aching moments. I as a friend have always wished to be there for them, sigh…I feel I hardly get opportunities for doing so. Nevertheless I told my friend once “ it’s okay if you don’t feel like sharing with me but if you do find someone else who did made you feel better, I’ll be simply content by the fact that your smile came back.”
I know not how to thank for the bundles of love I received this friendship day. These wonderful people now constitute my world. I thanked God last night for all these beautiful souls that he gifted me in the past one year and those which have always been there when I needed them.
I wish I could thank each one of you personally for coming to my lives and making it shine with your presence.
