next week, a good friend from college is arriving from a land far, far away. he will be the third friend coming over this year alone. all these three are who i consider my best friends in college.
first came F last may. he was here for 2 weeks to see his mom primarily. it was his first time to come home in 10 years. we saw each other twice but it was enough to reconnect and realize that some things never change. he's still my personal clown and my favorite friend and i just love him. he's still under the illusion that he's a hunk and girls fall all over for him. anybody can dream. i just hope he would come home more often now that his mom is getting older.
then last august, J came home. she was here for three weeks. one week she allotted for her family and the rest, for her friends. i was with her almost everyday for two weeks and i realized how i missed her so. she's still as generous and as talkative as ever. if only the next time she comes over, she would time it with F's vacation. that would be a real riot and would be just like the old times. i can't wait for that!
a week from now, A is visiting. yes, visiting. he said it's a business trip and from his busy schedule, i wouldn't see him till the day before he would leave again. he didn't even want friends to know he's coming. i'm excited but anxious at the same time. i can't pinpoint it but i feel something has changed. is it me or is it him?
i just love adele
nothing compares, no worries or caresregrets and mistakes, they're memories madewho would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
1. a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.
why can't I find it in my heart to be compassionate to you, to understand what you are going through? I feel for those you would leave behind and would do everything in my power to be with them and see them through when that time comes. But why can't I feel that for you? I'm so sorry.
Oh God, please give me the gift of compassion before its too late. Amen.
