One of the to do things on my loving list is to cultivate old friendships more and what better way than meeting over a cuppaccino. To me old friendships are like a great cuppaccino; strong, tasty, sweet, a comfort in times of need, fulfilling and always available.
Friendships like these are however hard to come by and need to be cultivated over a period of time. The more we give and invest in a friendship, the stronger it becomes.
A while ago I was involved in a Coffee Tasting and this principle was illustrated when I learnt the amount of effort and time involved in cultivating and producing good coffee. The hard work to produce good strong coffee results in a great cuppaccino. In the same way the effort invested in friendship results in long lasting and very rewarding relationships.
Do I have friendships like these I asked myself? Luckily the answer is yes. What a privilege to have friends who have been involved in my life through the early years of marriage, the birth of children, childhood illnesses, teenage tantrums, weddings and now the almost empty nest syndrome and growing older years.
Together with these special friends I loved, lived, laughed,cried, prayed, learnt about life, had fun and many discussions over a cuppaccino. I apologize for the times that I did not show you my appreciation and love and will try to do better in future.
A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need. (NLT)
Faithful Friends are a Rare Treasure
