Today my friend V and I gave a Children's Day treat to our kids. I have been spending a lot of my time with V and her kid.
As a friend, this is the least I can do to give her support as she is going through a very difficult period in her life. I feel sad for her as there is nothing that she can do to change her life at this moment. A betrayal of a 17 years relationship can be really devastating to her. It didn't help for the fact that she is also a stay home mom for the last 7 years. She trusted whole-heartedly with no reservation. As a woman, I can understand her feeling of being helpless now.
I am glad that our friendship has developed to the next level. These days, I won't dare to think our relationship will grow old together as in the past, I have been told many times and in the end, it is just words.
Somehow, people changed and thus these days, I have lesser hope. Of course it hurts initially but I guess when one door closes, the next door opens.
For me, bringing V into my life perhaps it that opened door and I am truly blessed for I know this friend is for real. Thinking about what V is going through reminded me so much of L and I am praying so hard that V will get stronger and finds the strength to see light and hope at the end of the tunnel.
As for L, you were always be remembered. I wish that I can turn back the clock and starts all over being your friend again.
