Anniversaries are not just for lovers. As great as celebrating the special anniversary of being with your loved one is, there are other important relationships in our life that should be treated the same way: our FRIENDS.
Today is our FRIENDIVERSARY! Dalawang taon na simula nung mabuo ang “POWERPUFF”. A year full of talking, hugging, crying and laughing. A lot! Mabababaw kasi kaming tao at punung-puno ng ka-cornyhan sa buhay. Without them, life is black and white.
Anyway, moving on, I cannot tell you how amazing this past year has been. Shane and Ces have been such an amazing friends. Napakadami na nating napagdaanan. Nakita ko kung paano niyo na-overcome yung mga challenges sa buhay at maging sa friendship natin.
As Jeff Yourison said,
“A true friend is one who helps you see the truth, even if it hurts. This doesn’t mean we can go around stabbing our friends with hurtful words. Rather, it means being up front with friends about important issues, raising gentle questions with tact and love, never gossiping or putting them down to others behind their backs”.
Thank you Shane and Ces for being there for me when I needed you most. Thank you for listening when I was ranting, and making me smile when I only wanted to cry. Talking to you girls always puts me in a good mood. I can’t even tell you how many times you made me smile kahit ang kokorni nyo! I’m not sure if I can count that high. AHAHAHA!
Thank you for sticking by me no matter how weird, awkward, or crazy I am, thank you for being those things with me. Thank you na kahit pumapalya ako minsan nandyan kayo to correct and make sermons on me. Sorry din sa mga times na kahit tinatadtad niyo ako ng text and call pero wala akong response, alam niyo ang reason ko at naiintindihan niyo ako. Sorry sa mga mood swing at tampo days ko.
Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako kay Lord kasi kayo yung taong binigay Niya na makakaintindi sa akin lalo na pag may saltik ako, kakailanganin ko sa mga oras na lugmok na lugmok ako at kailangan ko ng matinding yakap, mapagsasabihan ko ng lahat-lahat simula sa mga embarrassing moments ko hanggang sa mga success stories ko sa buhay, makakasama ko sa paglago in His words at magiging pangalawang kapatid ko.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. But I thank God dahil hanggang ngayon kayo pa rin yung ka-date ko, kaharap sa mesa kasama ang yogurt, kaholding hands ko, kasama ko kumain every Sunday sa chowking, kakwentuhan ko tungkol sa puso, utak at tiyan. At in the near future, sama-sama pa rin tayong mamamasyal with our future Mr. Right and eventually madadagdagan na ng stroller. Hahaha!
Friends come in all sizes, large, medium and small. But there is no friendship greater than ours. Our friendship is a blessing to me. I thank God every day for His grace and mercy. More years to come for our Christ-centered friendship.
Isang taong pagbabalik-tanaw:

True friends are a blessing no matter where you find them!
I love you so much Shane and Ces. :* ^__^
Your sweetest Melody, ❤
