Underrated Medication: Friendship

Friendship is a wildly underrated medication. Here is the proof. We had not been all together since my moms’ 90th Birthday Lunch in early March. Almost 6 months – a very long time for us. We have been together for over 60 years, and our parents knew each other as children in Malta. Actually Andy, Mercis’ dad and my mom Tessie are cousins.

After talking about how long is has been since we were together and feeling bad about not being able to celebrate our summer birthdays and realizing that the autumn birthdays don’t look so promising, we decided to meet while the weather was good. Good enough to stay outside and spend some time together. No fuss, no muss, ordered some pizza and chicken fingers and the must have garlic knots from D’Anna’s of Elmont Pizzeria & Ristorante. Paper plates and paper cups, you know Coney Island style dining. We had a wonderful afternoon hollering and laughing and sometimes just sitting in a comfortable silence that only happens between friends.

Our friendship is not a BIG thing but it is a million LITTLE things. We sometimes finish each others’ sentence. and then we agree to disagree and move on. Friendship takes love and patience and most of all forgiveness. Friendship is not a accident.

We are all living through some very scary times. But life is not so scary when you have a best friend.

Everyone has a friend during each stage of life. But only the lucky ones have the same friend in all stages of life. Friendship the underrated medication.
