FRIENDSHIP is a mirror to presence and a testament to forgiveness. Friendship not only helps us see ourselves through another’s eyes, but can be sustained over the years only with someone who has repeatedly forgiven us for our trespasses as we must find it in ourselves to forgive them in turn. A friend knows our difficulties and shadows and remains in sight, a companion to our vulnerabilities more than our triumphs, when we are under the strange illusion we do not need them. An undercurrent of real friendship is a blessing exactly because its elemental form is rediscovered again and again through understanding and mercy. All friendships of any length are based on a continued, mutual forgiveness. Without tolerance and mercy all friendships die.
Kris is in Vegas right now enjoying a short vacation/his friend’s Bachelor’s Party. While I’m here in the PH melting under the heat, the temperature ranges from 26-30 degrees celsius, and it’s not even summer yet. I wish I was somewhere else, I would love to be in a beach right now, which reminds me that Dawn is having the time of her life with our friend, Mel; I always see pictures of them by the beach. Work is overwhelming, taking leave from it is kinda like a mortal sin which shouldn’t be. Anyway, as much as I like to go on a vacation, when I think about the time I need to spend on packing my things and unpacking them, traveling back and forth (did I mention how exhausting the traffic in this country?), hmm I’d rather read a book or draw or anything inside my house.
I finished the 5th and last Percy Jackson book the other night. Gods, I love Greek myths!
There’s a lot of things I wanna say but maybe I’ll just use my Goodreads account again and put my thoughts there. I found my Kindle while cleaning yesterday, and had to charge it for an hour because I left it open last December, I love that its battery lasts long.
I wish I can do everything I want, all at the same time.
