Friends disappearing from our lives is a sad part of our journey on this earth. Slowly you stop talking to them, slowly you stop meeting up with them and slowly these angels disappear out of your lives, unnoticed like in the excerpt above. Sometimes, it just stops me in my tracks .... when I realise that I may never talk to or see a friend again and I feel a deep sinking in my heart. I brush it aside quickly because I really don't want it to bring me down.
One day many years from now I’ll think back to the times we shared and how once they played an important part in both our lives. Will my friends miss me as much? They could hv moved on and they may or may not. But that’s life isn’t it? But it has always been my belief that if you want a friendship or any relationship to continue to last, we must make an effort. Both sides. Otherwise, it will ‘disappear’, even without any of us realising.
For instance, my current docent friends... A great bunch of ladies and I do meet up with them for drinks and have a lot of fun with them and we made grand plans to keep in touch even in the future but once our training finishes, where will we be? Will we have a common ground to stand on? Will our conversations have the same sense of camaraderie that we feel now ? Actually, it may or may not... but I’ll enjoy our hilarious moments now as long as it lasts.
Here’s to all the friends who hv ‘disappeared’ or who are currently 'disappearing' from my life. I sincerely hope you are well or will be well whatever you are doing with your life. Be happy always and be blessed.
My home is
usually in a mess and has dust settled on almost everything. But I believe laughter and love will win the day. In 20 years, my girls won't remember how messy the house was but will remember the time we spent together and the love they felt...
