My #FavouriteThing today was a long text conversation with a friend who I have missed lately. It was long and lovingly and beautifully honest, and full of so much caring and appreciation. There’s a reason this person has been in my life for so many years – because he is one of the good guys, and he deserves a place in my life. And that isn’t changing, although the shape of our lives is changing. It’s nice to have a little reassurance once in a while that the people you love still love you in the ways they have to love, and that they will always be there for you. Things that I reciprocate whole-heartedly. I like the new way we are learning to experience our friendship, and both want nothing but the best life has to offer for the other. Really, that’s love. That’s the love I feel for each of my dearest friends. And he can count himself among them.
