There’s an old saying that goes “you don’t know what you have until you lose it.” There’s lots of wisdom to that, but it’s not always true. Some things like friendship we can know we have it because we aught to be so forever grateful for it. Having people who love and care about you is the most beautiful thing in this world. It’s true some people can’t see how amazing it is until reflecting in hindsight, but other times you can see the love right in front of you and it’s impossible to deny its existence. My heart just warms up to think of all the amazing friends in my life and I hope yours does too.
