Ever heard “There are friends, and there are friends that become family”?
As I grew older, I began to come to terms with the knowledge that friendship goes much further than superficially knowing people.
It has been an exhilarative experience getting to know a number of folks as I grew – those who stayed and those who leave us with memories of them. Either way, they were worth it.
I have grown to value the essence of friendship, for it is with them I have shared my little successes and failures.
With them, I have laughed, cried and feasted.
I’m writing this to no one in particular but to all my day ones – for sticking with me through thick and thin, for believing in me regardless, for dealing with my constant headache, for cheering me on, and for reciprocating the little love I have to give.
Most especially, for being there.
And to all, who I met few months, weeks or even few hours ago lol.
Thank you for being a part of this circle of friendship.
I know today is a special day marked out for little children, but I’m making an exception to celebrate the special people in my life.
Cheers to friendship.
Cheers to greatness.
