I have only a few good friends that I would share all my craziness and insignificant cheesiness with.
All of them, I did not plan to find but the Lord gave me along my journey. None of them are near me now, we are scattered in different places upon the face of this planet. It is hard when your great friends are not around. That kind of situation doesn’t let you communicate with them easily. We are busy with our own lives and we are separated in different time zones. My morning is their evening and of course it affects how we communicate.
It was easier when we were together, I could just randomly knock at their doors and started my completely insignificant cheesy stories without asking if they are busy. They also could do the same way to me, even more rude haha. We would spend the night at each other’s place and leave a mess without saying sorry. We would turn off the lights and talked until we fell asleep. We would just do random things together like eating ice cream late at night and talking about some random topics. Sometimes we would just be silent in our room without talking to each other but feeling perfectly fine because we were together. We could cry, we could laugh until it hurt, we could do those crazy little things together. We also would jog together after work and talked for a very long time that we forgot to eat dinner. Yes, I miss those times together with my friends.
Today, as we are in different places, going to different directions in life, it is just not the same. We will have to wait for the other to respond our texts for a few hours because it is still their sleeping hours. Or we will have to record our voice messages because texting is just too long! Although we don’t get to see each other often now, we know our hearts are still the same. We know that we still pray for each other in time of needs. We know that we will still listen to each other’s stories no matter how silly they are. We know that life is always better with friends.
I am thankful for having a handful of them even though we are now apart. I miss you, friends. I’ll keep you in my prayers and I always look forward to the day we get together again. ❤
