I have great friends, I really do. I’ve got the kind of friends who visit me at work, just to say hi. They are generous and thoughtful, call to see if I want to have lunch, and drop by unexpectedly with gifts.
Take Robin for example:
She’s a new friend I met in class and she’s super fun. We were instantly friends because of our affinity for friendship. Also, she has one of my dream jobs, so I look up to her and plan on “using” her as a resource in the future. She dropped by the other day with a nice little box of truffles… No small gift, mind you, from chocolate central here in Anchorage.
And then there’s Becca:
One of my good friends here in Anchorage, and probably the best gift giver I’ve ever known. She loves doing and making and giving things to others. She’ll drop by my office with a jar of skittles or other little gems, like these everlasting flowers: a constant reminder of friendship and sunshine and happy things in life.
And let’s not forget Jon, my wonderful and thoughtful boyfriend:
Right after we started dating he showed up at my work unexpectedly, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and card in hand. The inscription inside? “I really, really like you.”
Ahhh….. much the sentiment I feel toward these friends.
