When I was young--er, m mom used to say..."You have too many friends, you spend so much time with them..." and I'll just shrug it off thinking that "yeah i really do have a lot of friends and I like it the way it is". But over the years, I managed to retain two major circle of friends -- my childhood friends and my bestfriend. I think it's the longevity that has maintained our friendships throughout the years.
But having my hands full and with my friends being busy as well, I miss them. I actually got emotional that on my birthday, I was expecting I'd spend time with my childhood friends but since the situation called for otherwise, we had to reschedule. And by the time I asked again, everybody was busy once again. :( And to add to the imo, my best friend forgot to greet me. I was more surprised than disappointed. You see, for years, she has always been my first greeter. She even greeted me ahead of Simon. She never forgets...until now. And I can't blame her because we have'nt seen each other in months, we don't talk that often anymore and I suddenly missed her.
I know, I know, this post ruins the celebration mood from my birthday but I just wanted to share it. So if you have close friends, please spend time with them. Next to family, they're the next best treasures one can find. I miss all of you! I hope we'd catch up again soon.
