I got a call last night
A good call – no need to worry!!
A familiar call .. I get this call pretty often – at least once a week.
And if not a call, a text message – a silly e-mail. Sometimes it’s not words – sometimes it’s a picture to make me laugh.
Sometimes is a song on my voice mail.
Sometimes it’s just a wink – or “xoxox”.
No matter what, it brings a smile to my face.
And reminds me that I seriously have the best friends in the world.
During the process of planning the wedding, besides the emotions of personal change I was feeling – one of my biggest fears was loosing touch with my friends. I thought the potential of not being able to talk as much, see each other as often or continuing to share our stupid jokes would all be blanketed by the new life I was about to begin ( Read: DRAMA QUEEN).
I was wrong.
Sort of …. Do I say my friends all the time? – nope.
Do we talk as often? – actually I think we talk more … we actually have STUFF to talk about now. Important stuff … like what we had for dinner … and lunch… and dessert. Not, he said – she said stuff.
Are there people that have kind of fallen out of my life – yep.
On purpose … nope.
As I get older ( you know, since I’m super close to be a geriatric … hello old age pension!!) I realize that having a million friends means nothing as close to at least having one amazing friend. I’ve also realized that friendship – is a relationship … ( I know, revolutionary stuff here!!) it takes 2 to make it work.
If I’m always calling you … I’m going to start to feel like I’m bothering you… and I’ll probably stop.
Just like, if you’re always calling me, and I’m making no effort – punch me.
Friends are pretty rad – hugs yours often, tell them you love them, make them laugh and if they’re really awesome – make them cookies and then hang out so you can scarf them down together.
Be wisdomist this Wednesday my inter-web friends!!
