-We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young-
I’m spending this weekend with my sister and one of my best friends at her house. It’s her birthday tomorrow and the weekend is for us to enjoy each others company and to have a great time. Which I know we will. The beauty of being friends with someone is that they’ve been there with you through a lot, fun and sad times. They are part of memories that you cherish. Only a friends you’ve known for years can say ‘Remember when…?’ and in an instant you’re back to that point in life that seemed very distant at first but once mentioned you can remember it very clearly. You remember what you wore or where you were and what was said at that exact time. I’m looking forward to these moment with my new friends as well.
I am the happiest when I’m around people. People that love me and care about me, people I love and care about! Like my family and my friends. People I’ve known a long time. Like when I’m holding my cousins little girl with so much love in my heart or a little girl who belongs to a woman I’ve known for almost 20 years, a childhood friend of mine. That I’ve been through a lot with and seen her grow into the woman she is today, get married and have a baby. I’m happy when me, my sister and my brother-in-law are sitting in their living room at 2AM hysterically laughing over something silly. I’m happy when I see my mom laughing at her aunt who looks just like my grandfather did. I’m happy when my dad says he doesn’t worry about his job situation going on right now. I’m happy when my friend, even though she’s going through a death in the family still smiles through the pain.
I’m happy when people I love are happy!!!
