Last saturday , my dear friend turned 50 .. She wanted a huge party that would celebrates her life up to this point .
She invited 50 guest .. Each one of them marked a special place in her life . They are more than just a friend .. They are her family in this foreign place .
It was a night full of not only good food but also amazing people . One of the many surprises of the evenning was the edited video of our highschool friends ( including me ) . We sang our friendship song “That’s what friends are for” .
I have watched the video multiple times since my son and myself did the edited version of it .. Everytime I watched it my mind would utter a word or two . So let me write them down …
Friendship knows no distance or time. It only speaks the words of Love , Respect and Understanding . It embraces Acceptance of who we were , who we have become and who we will be . It treasure moments the good ones for the laughters and the challenging ones for the lessons to be learned .
Friendship is knowing when to stand for , yet still holds that Boundary and Accountability of the sacrecy of a secret .
That Saturday night as I sang our friendship song I know that my dear friend is surrounded with people who appreciates the beauty of friendship, love and life ….
Life continues here ….
To my highschool bffs who have grew up to be amazing human beings ( Kyaw, Nory ,Cio ,Son and Al ) , to my second family ( Tatay, Manang and Ate Ju ) thank you for making this video with me ..
