In many ways you and I are a mirror reflection of each other. What echoes between us is a near exact matching likeness of manner, attitude and beliefs, yet we are very different.
Each of us reflects to the other as a carnival mirror might reproduce an image. What is emulated back is fully recognizable, yet the likeness is changed and does not match our own self-view. That is the beauty of being close friends. We can see one another clearly and are each able to give one another a different perspective of our self.
There’s a saying that goes something like friendship isn’t a big thing; it’s a million little things. That’s why even after writing my list I feel it is sorely inadequate. There is so much more. Much of what I know about the friendship we share is beyond my ability to express, yet I know the truth of it at the soul level. I know it best when we can just sit silently and enjoy time together. My life is so much richer because you are my friend and I will live this life always with gratitude for your presence.
