The anticipation of a predicted excitement, known yet so new each time. The tranquility that comes from an earned comfort and the gift of being able to be oneself.
A silence kindly accepted, permissibly interrupted. Conversations lovingly understood, beliefs never challenged.
I can buy anything, plan everything, but I can never manufacture the gift of friendship because this gift can only be given and humbly accepted, joyfully appreciated and I am blessed to receive it.
Thank you, my friend.
