I'm Lucky To Have My Bestfriend



"Friendship is not about whom you've known the longest, but it is about who came and never left your side."

I have a best friend for 13 years now. Her name is Phoebe. I met her when I was in college, June 1999.

I don't remember the first time we really get along well with each other but there is one thing I will never ever forget about what she did..

It was the 14th of February year 2000, right after our first subject in the morning, she approached and handed me a card which she personally made. At first I was surprised, of course who would expect? 

We were not close friends yet. I just knew we belong to the same group in some other subjects but we rarely talk. Anyway, I accepted the card and then asked her, "Why?" She smiled and uttered, "B'coz you're special to me.." I just stared at her still wondering, speechless.

"I wrote my favorite poem and thought I could share it with you. Did you like it?", she asked.

"Oh, the poem? Yes. I mean of course, that was awesome. Sorry I am just very overwhelm, but anyway thanks a lot!", I replied. Gave her a light hug.

Now, every time we talk and reminisce about the past, we both end up laughing over our stupidities and stuffs. Who would really expect our friendship would really last this long? 

She was pleasantly plump and I was average thin. I was introvert and she was a bit loud. I felt intimidated whenever she was around. But since she was so makulit, she made me open up, felt comfortable and communicated with her very often. Then I got to know her better and so we hanged out a lot thereafter.

We became roommates from months to years and we've been through a lot of laughter and tears. We've known each other's secrets, strengths and weaknesses. We are officially partners in crime :)

I love her family, they treat me like their own child. I'm proud to call Phoebe as my sister. I call her parents mama and papa. I could stay with them for days or weeks whenever I don't feel like going back to our hometown or simply when I have trouble staying at home with my parents and siblings.

When I traveled and worked abroad, our communication stopped. Three years after, I found her thru a networking site and finally regain our long lost friendship. There was no drama but we missed each other's company a lot. 

It's just so amazing that after long years of no communication, it seems like nothing had happened. I might have left the country and my bestfriend but the trust and friendship did not went away. It is just deep within our hearts.

By the way, it will be "The National Best friends' Day" on the 8th of June and then the whole month of June, is the celebration of our friendship's 13th year anniversary.

"HAPPY 13TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY MY DEAR BFF, 
I MISS YOU SO MUCH! YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU AND LUCKY TO HAVE YOU!"

    1. Oh sorry to hear MEcoy.. Wala talagang katumbas ang tinuringan nating bestfriend kaya kahit nasan man sila ngayon, patuloy pa rin nating naiisip at pinapahalagahan. Alam kong mahirap makahanap ng katulad nya pero sana dumating na sya, masarap ang may totoo at tapat na kaibigan.

  9. Naka touch naman ang story mo and I admire both of you for your friendship. In these days, napaka busy na ng mga tao and halos la na time bumisita sa mga kaibigan. But, I am happy to gain friends through blogging and now, I can call them my friends coz because we can follow each and eveyones lives. And I am happy to get to know you gracie although mommy mo na ako. But I like it when you call me that:) Thanks sa mga papuri and thanks be to God who made me to be creative:)

    1. My pleasure to get to know you din po. You are an inspiration.

      I feel blessed na kahit anong mga pagsubok ang mga dumaan meron talagang nananatiling tapat at mapagkakatiwalaan sa larangan ng pagkakaibigan. Having a bestfriend or having friends are treasure talaga, ika nga God's gift kaya pinagmamalaki ko to (dati hindi :D). Klem!

    1. Hahaha you mean the photo? That's funny. Yeah, bestfriends are very significant in our lives. They are like plants, they need to be nortured, cared and loved.. in order to get fully grown. Plants need water, sunlight and air, like bestfriends who needed trust, loyalty and honesty in order to grow and bloom. Have a happy BFF day on the 8th!

  11. Super naka-relate naman ako dito. Yung BFF ko kasi ay mahigit 15 years ko nang kasama sa hirap at ginhawa, Kahit may sariling pamilya na siya, may time pa rin siya para sa akin. In fact, sabi ko sa kanya, iI have already promoted her to be my big sister :)

    Umagi la para mag-greet ha imo hehehe. God bless you and your BFF. God bless your friendship.

    1. Yeah, glad to know din. Blessed talaga sis since I found a second family pa that I can ran into pag sobrang down ako. Ang sarap ng feeling na you're accepted and given attention. Thanks for dropping by Mercy, take care :)

  15. Awwww, happy BFF day to you both. Isa pa ito sa downside ng pagaabroad. Naiwan mo na ang family mo, pati friends mo syempre naiwan mo rin.

    Thanks for reminding me about the 8th. I have to greet my best friend. We've met since we were in high school and kahit di kami magkasama he still is my bff & I miss him a lot. I know exactly how you feel. Ang maganda sa totoong kaibigan - di kaylangang araw-araw magkita. Pero pagnagkita o nagusap, parang walang naging gap o separation, ang bilis mapick up from the last conversation...

    1. Oh yes and I'm really fighting over for that until now, kung pwede lang gumawa ng sariling law na pwedeng i-petition silang mga naiwan para masaya ang lahat, diba sis? I really wanted my bestfriend here badly kaso ang hirap. Good thing may facebook etc. Agree talaga ako dyan sa bilis ng pic-up, pano kasi kahit di na mag-usap basta magkasama lang whether sa gimik with others or kayo lang together, naku sulit na sulit and gets nyo agad parang may mental telepathy lang diba hahaha!

      Thanks Ms. Kristeta, Happy National BFF din sa inyo ni Mr. Lucky Bestfriend hehe.
