In Celebration of: Travelling Friendships
There is a mistaken belief about friendships that once formed, they must remain consistent. You’ve probably seen those posts on Facebook or heard about true friendships being the ones where you pick up the thread again where you left off, going over old, common ground. But I like the ones where both people travel along their respective life paths, growing in the process so that when you next reconnect you are both different people with new stories and discoveries to share.
My friend Rosy is like that, she’s a traveller in many ways and when we reconnect we compare what we’ve learnt and share our excitement about our travel plans for the future. At so many times and in so many ways, she has encouraged me to keep travelling. She’s been supportive when things have been challenging and ready to share in fun when we’ve both needed to lighten up. She too, has undertaken some painful journeys to the dark side of life.
So today near the feast of American thanksgiving-Rosy has triple citizenship, Canadian, Australian and American- I would like to share my gratitude for Rosy a traveller extraordinaire and true friend. Long may she travel!
