We’ve all noticed them. We’ve perhaps even looked at them with a bit of awe and a hint of longing. They do not imply to evoke such bittersweet feelings in us, but their presence can occasionally make us want we had what they look to so very easily share.
They are at the health club, in the workplace, at the bookstore, at church, and in your favourite restaurant. There is often that small group of them cozily burrowed into the booth at the café with their heads drawn toward a single yet another, pouring their hearts out more quickly than the server can pour coffee into their cups. There’s also the group of them gathered purposefully about the picnic table at the park who are communing more than the deepest facts of motherhood, marriage, and family members when their young children chase a single yet another about the playground.
Buddies. And, not just the sort of casual good friends who stick to superficial, each day chatter. These types of good friends are actual good friends. They are deeply invested in a single yet another, know a single yet another properly, and look to be truly connected on a various level.
