“A friend in need is a friend indeed”

A friend asked me for a favor couple of weeks ago and I readily agreed that I would do it. But, conveniently enough, I forgot all about it until I saw a reminder email from him today morning.

Yes, that’s the kind of friend I am – forgetful, careless and hopeless, overall.

How is it, then, that I have some awesome friends who are just the opposite? Like SS.

I called SS today afternoon to ask him for a favor. Even before I finished the “will you do me a favor?” question, he told me that he would be more than happy to do anything. No second thoughts. No million how/what/why/when questions. But just a simple, yet a definite assurance that he would take care of the needful.

Also, he mentioned that anytime I needed anything, he would be glad to offer a helping hand. He did not utter this in an I-know-you-so-this-is-a-formality kind of way, but he expressed this in the most genuine way possible. And that put a smile on my face.

Why am I rambling all about this now? I don’t know, really; I don’t know why I started writing this post or where this is going…

It just surprises me, at times, that I’m surrounded by people who are so good, so selfless. I can’t get myself to believe that I have come across and have become friends with such beautiful souls. I might not be as a good a friend to them as they are to me, but I try. So yeah…for all the nicest people that I’ve come across, I’m thankful and more! I’ve so much to learn from each and every one of you !!!

    You know I’m a lot like you. I’m very forgetful, but it’s not because I don’t want to do the favour. But more because I just space out on it.

    But I’d still like to think that I’m a good friend to have. Because friendship is more than just doing each other favours you know.

    And I’m sure your friends don’t mind your forgetting cause there must be some other wonderful qualities that you have that make you a friend to keep.

    yeah I guess…i must be nice in some way :-P..
    I agree that friendship is not just about doing favors and stuff…but it’s the things like these that makes me take a minute and think how thankful I must be to have them around…other times I guess I just take them for granted…

    I’m sure you are being too harsh on yourself. I bet you are a good friend too just like your other friends…every one of us is forgetful now and then.

    Hmm…maybe 😀
