I had a conversation with someone yesterday where I made the comment, “Friendship is earned and never taken for granted.” This got me thinking about the friends I have who have, over time, become the key roots on which I rely heavily on for love and support. I will now show you the best set of friends in the world.
William aka Will aka Willie-Wonka (when I’m being mean)
I am excited to share with you, one of my best friends! William and I are as different as two people could be yet we share so many similarities. Although we generally have differing opinions on almost everything, he always accepts me for who I am and has no qualms about goading me into doing me. He is one of those friends who will do stuff like going shopping with me (I’m a nightmare to go shopping with) when he truly hates it or accompanying me to a wedding he had no business attending, all because I didn’t want to go alone. Will goes over and beyond the call of friendship to help and support me in whatever ways he can. It doesn’t hurts that he gives fabulous, though sometimes condescending, advice as well.
Lavanjah aka Lav
Has there ever been a moment that you thank the Lord for? Well that moment for me was November 2010 when I made a post about becoming a nun and this very annoying young man decided he had to reply. We quarrelled that night but that moment birthed a very precious friendship. Lavanjah (the second best friend) is, in many ways, the wind beneath my wings! He has been a constant through the many seasons that I have gone through. When you find a friend who doesn’t blink or hesitate when you ask to use his credit card, you know you have found a gem. We argue a lot, mainly because we are both very stubborn, but I wouldn’t have him any other way! May I say that it doesn’t hurt that he is a prayer warrior who has this annoying but well-meaning habit of praying guys who are no good for me out of my life.
