That special friend.


Hello everybody, how is your weekend going so far? If you are at home, lucky you cos I'm working and really need to sleep (vigil things last night). 


Every now and then, that special someone comes into our lives and makes us feel loved, fill the gaping hole, and makes us wonder where the heck you were all this while. It's true, some friends stick closer than brothers (and sisters). And when you do find that friend, hold tight and enjoy the ride. 

From childhood, we look for, yearn for that friend we will hold hands with, laugh and share secrets with, that friend we can be you with, our best friend. We all had that special friend that we didn't need an invite to go over, eat there, and even sleep there too, while your mum begs you to come back home. Yes, some of us are fortunate to still have that person existing in our lives but some of us ain't that fortunate so we prefer to fly solo and be a one-man squad.

I once had a friend who the parents thought was lost and had to call the police amid tears informing them of their missing daughter. Meanwhile the girl was with me all through that day, and her parents thought I traveled to the east for holidays so they didn't bother to check by my house. At the last resort though, they came by my house and found both of us playing, they just shook their head in relieve. They actually started looking for her from morning to night. I later found out what they had gone through.

To some of us, as years goes by, so did our friendship dwindle cos of different situations. We have lost contact on some very important friends, yours truly inclusive. Presently, I've been searching all over social media, google and all for some important people, still haven't found them, and it pains me whenever my search is futile. 
So as the "ember" month starts, call that long aged friend. You don't know what that call would do, bring a smile to his/her face, cry for joy, cheer the person, don't let distance, time or your busy schedule stop you, reach out , like I always say, you never know until you try. Ciao.
