Friendships That Last. (Monday Moments #44)

          It was a girls’ night out. All 4 girls in the group were committed. They all had a sweet love story of their own. That night though, they decided to keep away their phones and just enjoy the true spirit of friendship. They all decided to cook together. One of them got drinks, one got the material to cook, one brought movies and the last one brought some games. They were all thrilled to meet after a month. They talked about how tough their jobs were, how loving their partners were, how bickering their parents were and how much they missed each other. There was a time when they used to have wild sleepovers where they would have breakdowns or total drunk scenes or binge movie watching. But, as years passed, their talks became more soulful. They understood each other like no one else could. Sure, they'd still get high and do crazy things. But, that was only after their discussions about life and thoughts. One of them said, "My boyfriend doesn't have many friends. None of his friends ever stayed with him for longer than 1 or 2 years. So, today as I was leaving, he said how lucky I am to have such friends. But, you know, friendships don't last. Marriages do. Then I said, Prajakta has been my friend since 25 years. Surbhi since 16 years and Akshita since 20 years. So, precious friendships do last."
Surbhi said, "Has it really been that long? Wow!"
"I know, right? I'm just so glad to have you all in my life. I don't know where I'd be without you three."
"I love you all."
"Cheers to our friendship!"
In that moment, they were just relishing all the memories of the past many years and looking forward to being with each other for the rest of their lives. The girls might have found their life partners but they were each others' soul mates.

  4. Good girlfriends are SO important! I cherish my friendships and they've lasted through so much between all of us: death, divorce, kids, moving, career changes, you name it. Love your story - thank you for sharing this great message today!

  5. My best friend and I have known each other for 13 years, it basically feels like we're dating, ha! Really though it's so great to have friendships that last with people you truly care about.


  6. That's amazing. I have a friend who lives across the country and every time I see her, it's just like we haven't missed a moment.

  7. Definitely cheers to friendships

  8. Maybe it is because I am so close with my sister but I only have one friend from childhood. I haven't even spoken to my 3 best friends from high school in many years. I reminisced with that one friend awhile back and it was so much fun!

  9. What a lovely post! I agree - true friends can last a lifetime :)
