I went to bed happy.
The last thing I did was publish my last post and turned off the lights. I guess I was tired because most nights I don’t sleep before the witching hour of 3 am the following day so sleeping before midnight was a real treat! But whatever time I went to la la land I always wake up the same time, before the rooster even which tells me I must be getting old 😄. Who cares anyway? Definitely not me!
Anyway, fully awake now I checked my phone and saw the little WordPress, WhatsApp and Facebook icon giving notice that people actually read my post. Well the WhatsApp message was something else but I am pleased with who I saw, and read and I liked them. Especially in Facebook because these are people that I personally know and knows me back.
The first three women who liked my FB post are the three women that I admire myself.
We encountered life and work together and actually a fourth even reached out to me privately when I posted my poem Falling In The Cracks. She offered to listen but all I could reply was “Thanks Amel” because I know even without telling she knows what I am feeling.
Then I saw this quote fitting tribute to the friends I made over the years.
It is not really the number of friend you have that matters its the quality and the bonds you made together.
It doesn’t matter how often you see or talk to each other its the feeling that you know they are there no matter what.
There is always that invisible tie that binds friends together and its truly great to know that the binds are made of gold thread that is priceless like that of families.
Shout out to my friends 🔊 You know who you are!
