thats what friends are for
When I think back (which I tend to do at the end of one and beginning of another year) I see memories of very different nature – sad ones and happy ones, but all of them have one thing in common, main actors in those memories are friends. Friends who know all about me and still talk to me and more so – they even like me and care for me. These people who force me to examine, who are frank and honest with me and encourage me to grow. I have friends in different places of the world, the oldest and best friends are for sure in Austria, but there are people I have shared a lot of laughs and also tears with in other places of the world, but luckily true friends are never apart, maybe in distance, but not in heart. Thanks to that I can live the travelling life I do, cause it is not the quantity but the quality of time spent together that counts. This is also my only new years resolution, to spend more quality time with the people who I love the most.
Many people come into our lives and quickly leave. It is the special few that came in and left a footprint in my heart; that changed me and made me learn essential things for life.
Truth is the strongest bond that exists between friends if you lie or break a promise then you have broken that bond, which only time can heal, a bond which is so indispensable for trust and respect.
Nothing feels safer than a friend understanding me without me saying anything. Real Friendship is the sharing of all the secrets that my heart holds inside, it's tears and laughter, it's joy and broken dreams, its embarrassment and honesty, it is parallel reading of Gala, it is sharing flat, it is singing with each other, it is getting introduced to new music, it is drinking liters of tea with each other, it is forgiving, it is knowing each others families, it is driving home for Christmas together, it is being there for each other, it is borrowing a shower or bath, it is reading your blog, it is listening to your podcast and watching films with you, it is cooking for you, it is waking you up in the morning, it is travelling with each other , it is staying up all night to talk, it is arguing and finding conclusions, it is playing dice poker, it is organising theme parties, it is making coffee for each other, it is playing sing star, it is texting sms during boring meetings – it is love. Thanks to all of you who have been patient with me in 2006 and who have shared ups and downs with me. Luckily the contract of our friendship is not terminated.
I've got one more thing that fits into your list: doing embarrassing things at the bachelorette's party together ;-) ! Big hug, Lisi.Kommentar veröffentlichen
