365 Letters to Myself

April 25th - Friendship epilogue...

For this moment, I conclude friendship to be such a gift and I embrace my role in the relationship.

As someone who would have never imagined becoming estranged from my family of origin – the common motto ‘Friends are the family you choose’ has taken on significant meaning. Just as I tried to be a good family member, I now try even harder to give friendship the time and energy equal to the value they hold for me. I am not complacent or do I take these relationships for granted. I believe and recognize I am building a family of mutual respect and appreciation, not an obligation, but a choice.

And as it goes with choice, there is responsibility. I accept that it is unlikely to have several closely linked friends, and that it holds true, ‘If you can count on one hand the friends you have you are truly blessed’. Those would be the individuals that accept you just as you are, that would be there/do anything for you, make you better because you are connected, it’s easy to be with one another regardless of gaps, love is based upon desired betterment for of each other, jealousy does not exist…you simply like and care for one another.

From my perspective, I get to add a second hand. Incredibly grateful!!

Hmmm, a made family…day 265!

Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
