Love Happens #14 – “Friendship, is very comforting.”

“Friendship,” said Christopher Robin, “is a very comforting thing to have.”
― A.A. Milne

“It’s his birthday surprise!” “So who’s idea was it?” “The girls thought of it.”

“It’s his birthday surprise!”

The LoveByte team was walking around scouting for couples when we were approached to give this blindfolded boy here a hug for his birthday. This made us really interested to know what these youth had up their sleeve so we interviewed them and decided to add a photo of them as part of our campaign. Turns out, this is a birthday surprise they sprang on their dear friend here. It is obvious that much planning and preparation had been done just so they could make his birthday a memorable one. (:

This got me thinking about how love takes on many forms and guises. What could have been seen by some as a prank on this boy here is actually a display of their strong friendship and camaraderie. They took photos while this boy received hugs from total strangers and I thought – wow, this youth are helping their friend feel loved, one hug at a time. (: These friends are awesome aren’t they?

I’ve been really lucky and am grateful to have had collected many precious gems in life, these gems I call ‘friends’. They are my light in darkness and they make me feel good about myself when I’m down. They also spend time, effort and energy just to keep me going strong, come what may. Like family, friends provide an emotional support that has contributed much to the happy soul I have today. (: I’ve been enriched by their love, and I believe you can totally relate to what I’m saying, with a few friends of your own that just flashed across your mind as you read this.

This Christmas, take time to meet up with these gems. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, friends are the often-neglected people in your life when you get into a romantic relationship. Don’t make the mistake of neglecting either your partner or friends. Strike a good balance and spend your time wisely. (:

With Christmas Love,
