#fmf friend


Sometimes we chose our friends, carefully weighing their good and bad points, how they fit into our lifestyles, what role as friend they will play.

Sometimes our friends chose us, putting us through much the same rigorous vetting: “Qualified applicants wanted for job as friend.”

But sometimes the miraculous, the serendipitous, the synchronisitious happens, and an instant, indelible, incredible bond is made. A special friend who shouldn’t be.

They live a different life style, have different interests than us. We don’t share family backgrounds, or children’s playgrounds.

We might “talk” (a much broader term with all the various technologies available) daily, or much less often.

We might meet up for coffee on a regular basis. Or never meet at all.

But  we are there for each other, share the triumphs and the trials, understand implicitly and intuitively.

When the miraculous happens, it’s not a question of why, or how. It’s what it is – a special something. And, sometimes that specialness is a friend.


{Perhaps because I wasn’t writing a story, but something more directly personal, I found my fingers pausing over the keys more than usual; thinking and writing rather than just flowing.}

    That’s so true! A lot of good things can happen when we aren’t expecting them to — friendships included.
    Thank you for dropping by.

      This is my response to trisbendickson. For some reason it ended up here, not below her comment!

    In addition those we think who may be friends end up not being so. Must say I enjoy the unexpected friends :)

      I agree, there have been people I was sure I’d be friends with, but if it started at all, the friendship wasn’t lasting.
      I too, enjoy, the unexpected friends.

    Sometimes the best friendships come along when we least expect them. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, sweet FMF neighbor :) Blessings to you!
