The tides

Low tide at Boracay

The tides are constantly turning. Sometimes rolling on low. Sometimes rushing in high. But always cyclical. We must move with it. Both the ups and the downs. With or against it. That's just the way it is. I prefer not to get swept along. Knowing not where the tides might take me. But rather dancing with it. Taking it all in and forever grateful when the tide flows full.

The other siblings God gave us

We go back some 33 years. My best friends and sorority sisters from college. In a world where life is short and uncertain, this friendship which spans over 3 decades is a long time. We've been there for each other all these years. From thesis to graduation, marriages and childbirth, family losses and heartaches, promotions and celebrations, love found and lost. It's the kind of friendship that is priceless and rare. Where you can call each other up at 2:00 in the morning and cry your heart out. Where you need not talk or see each other for stretches of time and yet pick up like you were only together yesterday. Someone once said sorority sisters are the other siblings God gave us. I belive so.
