My friend happily reconsidered his decision of taking a break and we are back on track, as friends. He called me on Sunday night, and on Monday we met for lunch, and I saw him again on Tuesday after work. He asked me to call him on Wednesday during his lunch break if I want to, and of course I want to! We still have plans with two other relatives which should be fun.
It's always nice having a good friend. It beats being lonely and by ourselves. We try to enjoy the simple and inexpensive things in life together. Everyone can always use a good friend don't you think?
