It’s 12:00am. I felt the urge to write something so here I am writing despite of the fact that I need to wake up a little later at exactly 6:30am. But sacrificing a couple of minutes dedicating something to a friend would not be a waste of time. I’ve never been really sentimental around her and I think now is the right time I can express how much I value and appreciate having her in my life. She might not ever get to read this one (since I didn’t tell her I’m going to write a post for her), but I hope to those that will be ABLE to read it will know God blesses us with real friends that will truly touch our lives with theirs.
1 decade and 4 years ago while I was attending Sunday school, I met a girl that would turn out to be one of the true and best friends I would ever have in life. But she will not be the star of this post, I’m here to tell you about her older sister. Her sister’s name is Clarie. Clarie’s one year older than me. When I was growing up, I used to dislike her greatly. She’s very bossy, and back then I used to hate bossy people because I was one also (Ooohhh just the irony of life). I think she didn’t like us that much either. So, she ordered us around, me, my sister (who’s 11 months younger than me), and her sister. You know how it is with kids, the older ones never hang out with the younger ones. There’s also one thing about her that really annoyed me, her being a girly girl. I don’t consider myself one and will never consider myself as one. To make the long story short, we were seating on opposite ends of the magnet. We had nothing in common, there were no similarities to connect us. There was no way, we would ever be friends, I thought. But God thought otherwise.
Everything changed when I was 15. We started chatting little by little. We hung out together. Surprisingly, I realized, we do have things in common. We’re both Ates (older sisters). We shared the same sentiments of being the older kids in the family – having responsibility over your siblings. As time went by, the friendship between us grew deeper and now, I treat her as if she were my own sister.
Through our fateful meeting I’ve learned, you can find a true friend in anyone if you’re willing to open up your eyes and your heart. There’s a bond that God creates between each person we meet to make us feel His love through them. With that said, I am grateful to have met a friend and sister like Ate Clarie. You will always have a special place in my heart and my life. 🙂
THANK YOU and…
