My 4th Grade Friend
August 27, 2012
My oldest friend that I still see on a regular basis went to Prague because she was chosen to be a bridesmaid. What I really wanted to say about her was that about 2 year ago when she found out I collected Starbucks City mugs, she got one of Washington DC for me and rushed over after work to give it to me. After work for her is around 11PM at night. I will never forget that night. I have the mug, it’s an architecture mug, Washington DC mug, just as they were discontinuing it. All along I’ve been saying to everyone, it’s never about the mug, but it’s all about the messenger of the mugs. I don’t usually do posts for the blog, because then it entails people to have to read it. I just want people to accidentally find the blog and be inspired by it. For the past one week, there were at least 2 that found it and are completely inspired to collect. AGAIN, it’s not about the blogger, but the message that the blog delivered.
What transpired for a reader when they visit this blog, I may only know if they chose to verbally communicate with me. Lately, it’s been a blessing because they are more readily coming forward and letting me know they appreciate the effort behind it.
We draw energy from each other. The blogger, the admin, the moderator…only has the desire to continue when it’s voiced in the most affectionately way..APPRECIATION.
So my beautiful, longest and dearest friend…although you are too busy to work and help others around you, you always think of me no matter where you are, even if you are thousands of miles from me. That love is so dearly cherish and now, I am vocally letting the world know as well, that I too deeply touched by your sense of
kindness and our beautiful lasting friendship.
As represented by these two mugs, it’s just us two, together like we were in Sunday school, and now as we are older, still together, always there for each other, by your side, as you are always by my side…
