I was visiting a friend the other day, and we had fun catching up. It had been some time since we last met, so I was a little apprehensive. I even had a mental list of questions prepared, in case we ran out of things to say!
But I needn’t have worried. As friendships go, I don’t think we even noticed the awkward silences and pregnant pauses. We were able to pick up where we last left off, as if the months and years we hadn’t met did not exist.
It’s interesting, this thing called friendship – how it blossoms, starting with two people who don’t know each other. And over time, sharing lives and building trust.
“You look happy,” she said.
