So, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Friends make the moments... even when there aren't moments they still make the non-moments into moments.
And on today I felt it rather appropriate to write another post celebrating the friendships I have created with people from all around the world.
You rock. All of you.
Hyvää ystävänpäivää to every single one of my friends around the world. If I could I would message you all individually with a little message of awesomeness and thanks for the friendship we have.
I really think that Finns have this Valentines Day thing right. Sure it's great to celebrate the loves in our life but too often people forget to celebrate those friends that make life possible.
“A journey is rather measured by friends than miles”
A friend posted this on her Facebook status just now and I couldn't help but be struck by the truth of this. Without friends what is a journey? They make life better. They make life fulfilling. And I'm not talking about the type of friends on facebook who you only have on there for a game or because they added you because you went to school together and barely spoke to each other in that time. I'm talking about true friends. Friends with whom you can talk on all sorts of subject matter. Friends with whom you can share your thoughts, worries, and joys. People who when you think of them you can't help but think of then with a smile on your face. Friends who even though you may never have met each other in person have struck and stuck to your life in some manner.
So here is my message to my friends:
I love you guys.
You make life worth living.
You make happiness from nothing.
You make experiences worth having
You make the journey worth sharing.
