I am lucky to have GREAT friends.
In school I had a lot of friends but I am not in touch with most of them as I do not visit the place that I was in school.
In college we were a group of 5 friends who were close and enjoyed our college days by bunking and going to movies and sometimes going on a picnic with the permission of parents,
I had lost contact with all of them, Met one on my wedding day when I went to the beauty salon to get my make up and hair done and in a hurry did not really exchange any phone numbers.
Some years ago on a Sunday I happened to talk to all four of them and we meet sometimes as and when time permits,though we speak on the phone on birthdays and keep in touch otherwise too.
When I went to Bombay Hospital I met some girls who I became friends with and am still very close to. Even though it is more than 30 years since I first met them, we have been there to support one another in any way required.
Two of the friends are now settled in Auckland, New Zealand and my husband and I visited them for 3 weeks about 3 years ago. We really enjoyed the holiday and it was one of the best holidays that we had. We exchange gifts and know each persons likes and dislikes.
I have been going to The Home for the Aged for nearly 13 years as a volunteer and there too I was lucky to meet some nice people who I am friends with.
I love my friends and hope and pray that everyone has somebody to be there for them in times of need. I have not mentioned any names but you know who you are when you read this blog post.
May all of you be blessed always.
Love you all,
