There are some people in life who make friendships effortless. They are those people who feed your soul without trying to. These people are “your person” and I’ve come to the conclusion that you will only have a handful of these types of friends in a lifetime.
Sometimes these people end up in different parts of the world as we grow, follow dreams, careers, and grow families. It isn’t fair to have to leave or watch them go with the uncertainty of when you will laugh over a bottle of wine again. However, I am here to tell you that those friendships will never dissipate.
You will drive across the country to see them for less than 24 hours or maybe they will pass through your town on a move. Before you see them, you will realize how much you haven’t spoken to them over the past year and wonder how much has changed since then. But then you’ll see them and you will pick up right where you left off like nothing every changed.
That is how you know you found your person.
You will spend time catching up and reminiscing on memories that hold a spot in your heart that you cherish. You will hug their children tighter and spoil them rotten like any surrogate aunt would.
You will soak in every minute you get with them, and as your time together comes to an end you will be reminded how much you miss them. How much you miss your shopping trips, play dates, going out to lunch, and just having conversation over coffee in the morning with someone who totally gets it.
You will have to say your good-byes again and this time it might not have as many tears as the first time you said good-bye but it won’t hurt any less. Even though you may not know exactly when you will see them again for that morning cup of coffee, you will know that when you do see them again you both will pick up right from where you left off and nothing will have changed because they are your person and you are theirs.
