Best Friends...

At least three of W's friends have remarked or written that they considered him to have been their 'best' friend. So amazing and wonderful to a mother who was rarely on the receiving end of detailed conversations with her son. It is also interesting because in a March entry in his blog, he mentions feeling that he has no best friend. How isolated we sometimes feel from one another, when there are people around us who are feeling just as lonely. And yet one rarely dares to make the leap of faith it takes to reach out, in case we are rejected.

I wish I could tell the teenagers that it gets easier to make friends as we get older, but I'm not sure that it does. I hope that I am more accepting that I was as a teenager, but I still find it difficult to maintain many friendships. And yet I appreciate them so much more at this time.

I hope my friends understand that they don't have to worry about saying the right thing or saying anything special to me. "I'm sorry" is the best thing and just being there is so very important. I hope that I make more of an effort to stay in touch with others.
