Friends for Life!

 Thursdays are for GREAT PEOPLE in my life!




Today, I am featuring my Better Living Friends!

This was written on November 20, 2006, 6 years and 2 months ago!

I wrote this because, back then, there were plans of friends leaving for the USA soon! Since I was missing them already, I wrote this for them.... not knowing that I would be the one leaving the country in less than a year after it was written!

Read on...

Shores never meet but share the same ocean. 
The moon and stars couldn’t be one but they are in one sky. 
Friends never have to meet often but they never stop being friends…

Got this text message from a dear friend named Claire. She, among with Clarissa, Gizel, Majoy and Mavi has always been like a sister to me..

Claire, Gizel, Clarissa
Majoy, Mavi
Yeah... friendship that has grown stronger.. from playing volleyball to dance intermission numbers at our own home association get togethers, from playing pool to summer swimming, from simple admirations a.k.a. crush to boyfriends.. from blooming late (that’s me) to uneventful Clarissa’s shower party as she was the first one to marry untouched! uneventful for we remained such, good girls, hahaha :) from having boyfriends to tying the knot! to kids! And still from eating to eating and eating! :) We will never run out of stories to share.:)

Time and again, we, I guess, no matter how many tides, waves, eclipses, and what-have-you, will always remain friends.. We may not see each other often, and we are not always complete! Sad fact, in due time, we may only be seeing each other via net, hu hu hu, but

as magical as one summer’s day
when destiny brought us together to play.. (poetic huh?!)
come a time when we’ll be old and gray (it still rhymes..)
I know we’d still be together come what may (ha! Hehehe)
I will forever cherish friends like you

.. we are trekking our own courses, setting our own plans, dreaming our own dreams and we are victors in our own right, and yet.. we know we simply are those 15-16 yr old teenagers playing ball in the volleyball court of life..

Sometimes we hit well, sometimes we don’t.

Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. 

But we continue to play, slippers and all, 

we continue to strive, 

we continue to be our best for each one, 

because we know we have to keep the ball up no matter what, and yet at times we don’t keep up, at times we are just plain lousy.. but still at the end of it all, 

we all know we’ll still be together eating chami to spaghetti, to Zym’s special to San Mig light, 

to Lucena to Manila to around the world.. Hehehehe

Kudos friends!
... Here they are now!
