I’m thrilled to be participating in a five day ‘LOL-a-thon organised by ‘The Momsteins’. Join us to read some wonderful letters written by 26 cool bloggers. Stay around to read some amazing letters coming up.
Today’s prompt is ‘Letter to Friends’

If someone asked me to define what importance does friendship hold in my life, this is how I’ll put it –

I really don’t fear falling anywhere…. That’s because you my friend will be there to hold me and pull me back to my feet.

Everytime, every single time I am about to go into the dungeons of self-doubt and holler in self pity about difficulties of life, I have someone hit me on my butt and get me going. That someone is you my friend.

There are times when I do not wish to do much and just chill, have some good time and enjoy. At such a time I do not have to do much. I just call up someone, make a plan and we both get going.  That someone is you my friend.

On days, when I just need to pour my heart out about things that upset me, I call someone. To this someone I pass on my repetitive shit without the fear of being judged in return. That someone is you my friend.

Theirs is awful movie screening this weekend. I wish to watch it. To not appreciate it, but howl at every   appalling scene or at how silly the actors look and hoot sardonically at lack of logic in the dialogues. I need someone to enjoy the experience with me and not fear other people’s stares of repugnance. That someone is you my friend.

There are days when I am distracted, or unreasonable or out of my mind, doing things that do not really define me, someone just gives me a piece of their mind and get me to shut up. That someone is you my friend.

At times I feel inspired enough to dream big. I want not just to fly but fly high to places unfathomable. At such times, someone cheers for me and tells me that I am capable of achieving anything I wish to. That someone tells me I just need to spread my wings and take the leap of faith. That someone is you my friend.

There are days, when I sit back on my couch and reminisce about what I have achieved in life. I sigh with contentment of having quite few someone(s) who I may not talk to everyday, or even for months or years. But when we do catch up, we pick up on life from where we last left it. That feeling is exquisite. It makes my life worthwhile. It makes me want to convert every other relation that matters to me into this one relationship that the world calls ‘Friendship’.

I have my own version of a very famous saying that caters to a different set of relationships. I’d say that God couldn’t be everywhere, so he created a beautiful relationship called friends. They are not related to me by blood or by ritual. They have just become a part of my life and gradually become my guardian angels without much hue and cry about it. They are just there, with a promise to follow that unwritten, unsigned brocode or sistercod or soulcode… whatever one may like to call it. But it’s there, it will linger for as long as life exists.

I would like to thank Charu Sareen Gujjal for introducing me. You can read her post here.

This brought back so many beautiful memories. Yes, I am lucky to have few such friends but I feel sad to not be around a few more. Marriage and different locations have been a spoilsport.

This was such a sweet post. Friends often go unappreciated, especially after the day to day chaos of family and kids. But like you said it’s always worth making the time to remind yourself to be grateful for them 🙂

I can totally feel you. I do the same in my ups and downs.

Friends are the family which we choose. I agree with you that they are like the guardian angels who watch us and lucky are those who get good friends.

I just have few honestly but they are enough for me and i am thankful that i have them for the longest of time…our conversation even after months of no interactions starts where it ended last…

It’s a beautifully written note. An ode to friends.
