Do you see my profile picture? The one focused on my hugging a friend.... Well, I have an interesting story. See I am bad about letting friends slips out of my reach. I am Guilty of being the out of sight out of mind type of person. It is hard for me to maintain the friendship that I treasure while grooving in life. God has an interesting way of breaking me.
You see, I met my friend, who we will call Friend, years ago when I was a teenager. Her sister and I met at a youth event. Sister and I were fast friends. We would spend weekends with each other. She taught me Belize City life and I taught her how to Cayo. I have great memories visiting her family. It is through these visits I met Friend. Soon she and I developed a friendship. With Sister, Friend would some and visit me often and we had many great times. When events and stuff would come around, we would look out for each other.
Sadly I got busy. I got a job away from home. I was on the road too much. I got caught up with trivial things in life, like paying the bills. We got disconnected. How sad.
God has a knack at resurrecting things. Now that I am University of Belize, I met up with Friend again! She and I take a class together, but we do more. We hang out when we can. She is a dancer and she invites me to practice, just to see and some times I go. Some times I don't. Friend and I are back together and we are friends again. Not that we ever stopped.
Someday I will learn to balance life and not let friendships die.
