A warm and friendly welcome to each and every new guest as well as our beloved return guests! This week we are facing the change of the seasons, and a huge change in our office. We had to say good bye to Melanie who is moving back to the fairest Cape with her family.
Many of us couldn't hold back the tears as the sudden realisation of loss hit us like a kick in the stomach. The fact that we will now never know to what depth our individual friendships could have developed also hit home hard! Some things do need time, but we need to invest it...
This event prompt me to get in touch with the more philosophical side of me this week.
The three characteristics of a real lifelong friendship is to have someone who will still like you even if you don't like yourself. Secondly, it is to have a companion to do or experience different things with, during your lifetime. Thirdly it is to have someone that you can and will support and who will support you during good or bad times.
My wish for one and all and especially for you Melanie, is that you will have or find that friend in your lifetime!
When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door we do not see the one that has been opened for us!
Have a wonderful week.
