On Friends

How awesome are friends? Isn't it funny how you often find just the friend you need at just the point you need them. And what joy and comfort a friend can bring you.

When you think of all the people you meet in day to day life it makes it impossible to imagine how your life became somehow entangled with some people and not with others. And when you spend all day in the company of people you literally have to be paid to hang out with, it is so refreshing when you encounter a colleague with whom you can converse with easily without resorting to talking about work.

The best bit about my friends is that I can not see them for any amount of time yet when we hang out again it is like we were together just yesterday. And who doesn't love that moment when you glance at your watch and realise that what felt like an hour with good company was actually an entire evening.

I used to think I was a person with a very small circle of friends, and at several points in my life so far that has indeed been the case. But right now I feel so happy to have a wide group of people I would consider to be friends. I have someone for nearly every conversation I should wish to hold right now, and people with whom I can do nearly every activity I would wish to undertake. I have friends I speak to daily, and some I only see once or twice a year, and many something between the two.

I would like to sincerely thank all of my friends from the bottom of my heart for making my life so much richer for being in it. I love you all very much and can't wait to hang out with you all again soon!
