Hey, you’re there?

Can I describe how I’m feeling now? Sure I like the way I’m feeling now, but it’s indescribable.

Just got off a more than an hour WhatsApp voice call with some high school friends. And oh my, getting to hear their voices again, gives me joy. Pretty well, I haven’t met with any of them since graduation.

I’m so grateful for the gifts of friends… Good friends, to hit home rightly. Those friends had at a time helped me at my worst, offered good advice, rendered prayers on my behalf, lifted my spirit, showed me love, and yeah, they’re still here. They stuck by.

It’s pretty funny how I got pissed off with my phone for having gained only like 50% before the light was taken, only to let off 30% at the expense of speaking with my friends. I sure do not regret doing that, cause every second was worth it.

And that begs the question…

Who are your friends?

Those in your circle, are they worth it?

Are you gaining value and are you also giving out value?

How well do you appreciate your friends?

My friend, Eunice, will always say, “Have godly friends, e get why.” Over time, I’ve gotten to realize the truth in that.

Sure no man is an island. We can’t live this life all alone. We need people. We need friends. But there’s the need to be conscious of those we move with. It’s not just about gaining friends. It’s about building it, feeding it, and giving it all it takes to see that it thrives. Friendship is also a relationship. A deep one at that. And if you can keep it well, you’ve got for yourself sisters and brothers.

I guess I’m gonna use my brother’s words here: “Go out, see and hear somethings for yourself, have some exposure, make friends, diversify, read books, engage in sensible arguments, knowledge is cosmopolitan. Never underestimate having intelligent conversations, it pays.”

A phone call can mean a lot to someone.

Just a text message can communicate a lot.

You never know what such a person may be going through.

Reach out to someone today.

Show some love.

Be the reason why someone smiled.

Is there someone you’ve been thinking of texting or calling?

Don’t hesitate.

Send that “hey, you’re there?” now!

It’s a blessed day, peeps. Ciao๐Ÿค—โฃ๏ธ

  1. I really enjoyed the call. I’ve not been this happy for like months, the kind of joy friends bring you is one if a kind. It’s really hard to process that your friends wouldn’t be your friends for ever ( migration, life pursuits,) but that moment you have with those friends should be cherished. Agnes you did a great job putting this up ๐Ÿ’™.

  2. Great and inspiring write up. The question โ€œwho are your friends?โ€ is what everyone should find answer to because it speak volumes of who we are.
    Well done Agnes. More grace sister.

  3. Beautiful post! Your brotherโ€™s advice is so wise. Agree with everything you said. Friendship shouldnโ€™t be gifted to anyone, but only to those who will stay along and be loyal. I mean, weโ€™re all friends. But are we all REAL friends? ๐Ÿ˜‰ That would be no one for me in my 17.11 years.
