Hi. I’m Marla. I wanna talk to you about people in life that you rarely see, and hardly ever talk to.
But when you do, it’s magical, like no time has passed. Even though you may have a lot of catching up to do, there’s just a natural, easy way you relate to each other.
I’m not very good at making an effort to stay in touch on a regular basis and keep up with the day-to-day. I sort of suck at it.
I have my excuses, none of them are good, but it’s not that I don’t care…..
I have this one good, wonderful, close, and at times, best friend that I hardly ever see. We have so much fun when we’re together, we laugh so hard sometimes we cry. We can talk about anything.
We’ve known each other for years, yet it feels like our friendship is still new and exciting. We love spending time together. When we occasionally talk on the phone, or get together in person, we fall into an easy rhythm.
Saying goodbye is tragic, whether it’s after a good long visit or a short check in. Our visits and conversations make me feel refreshed and fulfilled for days after.
It’s a small world we live in, Disneyland notwithstanding, and chances are I know I’ll randomly or intentionally get to spend time with this person again….
And I hope I see you soon. I’m Marla. Thanks for listening. See ya.
Personally I stopped fighting it and feeling guilty that I can’t keep up with everyone I ever met! The friends that are meant to be there in my life ARE there.
And I know that thing of when you have a friend that just fits right back in however long you are apart. No explanation necessary.
