PATRICK VIEW: A SPECIAL FRIEND

https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.com/2018/07/preview_special-friend-tree-keyring.jpgEverybody has that special person they call they special friend who is always around to talk and chat with.

From my views, i was able to note some specific things i found in that my special friend.

Here goes an analogy about that special person i call my special friend.

 

*******************************

Last time you were here we felt a different atmosphere couldn’t recover from the feeling of your smile.

Then I watched out for you the next Sunday, I Prayed Monday to Saturday that I may see that beautiful smile in you.

Then today, so anxious as I ponder in my heart about you. If only I could see your smile and your face i feel at ease. I looked up aimlessly into the clouds. A call might have at least confirmed my doubt

Then I saw you being ushered in like a royalty and coming toward me.How I jumped and screamed in my mind “My special friend is coming”.

It is fun , just when you’re here everything changes for good.

It is fun when we shout, sing, scream and rejoice together.

It is fun, when we talked about life and prosperity

It is fun My friend, just when you’re here i feel ease and i feel like talking to you all through.

**************************************

Here are some pictures related quotes  that shows some analogy of that trustworthy, honest, and loyal special friend.

1. “The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it.” – Hubert H. Humphrey

  1. Lovely post Patrick! Am reminded not to take my special friends for granted today! I have a best friend I’ve known for years. He is loyal, and an exhorter and encourager in my life. We laugh alot, and although living in opposite parts of the world remain very connected, and as iron sharpens iron we seem to bring out the best in eachother, and make each other better people.😁

    Portrait of a Friend”

    I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
    or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
    search for answers.

    I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
    nor the future with its untold stories.
    But I can be there now when you need me to care.

    I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
    I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

    Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
    Yet I can share in your laughter.

    Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
    I can only support you, encourage you,
    and help you when you ask.

    I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
    from your values, from me.
    I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.

    I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
    But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
    room to be yourself.

    I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
    But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
    and put them back in place.

    I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
    I can only love you and be your friend
    (Adam Clarke)

    1. Hi

      Thank you. I am happy to see your comment. It gives me a thoughtful thinking and am  happy for short poem which you did now. That is always my intention to see a comment in relation to a poem as backup. That gives me thinking if we really have humans as friends in this world.

      Am happy  to see such poem on this post.

      What you said in your comment and poem is tru  is true .

      From the portrait of a friend, i was able to grab something which you said:

      “””I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be I can only love you and be your friend “””

      Well, If I wish i can change the time and adjust such things i wish for a friend that we always be by my side all day long.

      Thanks for the wonderful post.

      Cheers,

      PATRICK

      And here are the answers to your questions:-
      1. I have more than one such friends with whom I am completely at ease and I can share everything that’s in my mind.
      2. Honestly, there’s a different answer for every subquestion here… 😅. There’s one friend with whom I have THE BEST CONVERSATIONS. There’s another who is an expert in chatting. Rejoicing, trolling and partying…. Well that’s fun in a select group of people who make me forget my ‘worries’ and have a good time!

  5. Your post captures me in a moment Patrick ❤ … I especially liked your analogy and how you described the waiting, the need and the eventual embrace in your moments together again. … all of what you say and the quotes from others is so true. We find ourselves alone and yet, when gifted with the presence of another, the melding of energy and companionship creates something beyond us both. You have such a raw and honest way of speaking ❤ … Your questions cause me pause ❤ Thank you for a great post for my Sunday morning in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

    1. Am speechless right now, dnt know what to say right now.

      When I first saw the the long comment i was thinking it was a normal comment. But have to read to the end. I found out is quite different. I knew it was going to be a good and inspirational  comment.

      Am the type who reads very inspiring comment since it’s talking about friend. I have to read it.

      For me am the type who engaged in such also. When I read to the middle part i was convince that the comment was different. I didn’t waste my time in reading it instead I read it like a 5years old.

      You write and explaination about the post are quite OK.
      I make reference to it later  in preaching and promoting my blog. You just touch my spirit this morning.

      Thank you so much for adding such magical drop of words in my jar of motivation.
      I feel blessed by your post  right now.Again such a beautiful post.

      HAPPY SUNDAY!!!!

GOD knitted our paths together and they have never been broken. They love me for who I am, no judgement there and they would come at a moments notice of need. Friends like this are priceless and I am honored by their love for me. I know I am extremely blessed to have them in my life today. Thanks for your post!

    2. Well it should be a friend you love and who loves you back equally. You both should love each other so much that always each should put the other’s interest first. To sacrifise a little for the other should be not a sacrifise but a romantic joy to both.
      And both should have strength to sustain the other and to fight for it if needed.
      Thats all that is coming to my mind now about it I think.

  9. Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Cheers!
