Exultation

Yesterday was a day filled with pleasantness.

While we should hold dear and cherish our blessings each day, the truth is that most days are like the others in their sameness - so blessing counting can at times be uninspiring at best.

Yesterday, was one of those days when an abundance of happiness seemed to flood in.

It started with me receiving a photo by e-mail of a dear friend whom I have not seen in 8 years. The joy of recognition was very strong because this is the only friend of whom I have never had a picture. Somehow, we never got around to taking pictures of ourselves and one another when we were together.

Later, I managed to leaver work (in Ottawa) at 15:00, so I was able to pick up Jason and Tania from daycare (in Montreal). The children were overjoyed to see me - since the only day I pick them up is on Mondays when I am still here.

Finally, coming home, there was a message on the answering machine from another dear friend I had given up for lost these past two years. He suffered very serious injuries in a car accident almost 3 years ago (broken neck and back - but, thanks to God, no paralysis, but recovery was long and slow). After he recovered, he returned to his home country and we lost contact with him. So, it was wonderful to hear he has returned.

"The greatest problem with communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished." - George Bernard Shaw

Comments

Friends are indeed blessings, aren't they? I have many who have walked with me through the years. Like you I have lost some, and gained new ones.

And though every one of them is different, each of them has in one way or another, left their footprints in my life.

And I am grateful to have them. I guess life will be even bleaker without friends....
