The Best Gift You've Ever Recieved (Yashita)

So I suppose not many people know me here :) And I take the whole blame for it. I have not posted since my introduction post and no, I am not going to wear you guys down with any excuses :) Anyway, my post is quite apt considering the current situation BUF seems to be in. So here's about the best gift I have ever received :

Sneha was A's very good friend. Therefor it seemed obvious that Sneha would come quite often in hostel to meet A. She would always say hi-hello to us, the usual pleasantries, chat with A and leave. I never much interacted with her and I, at first, didnt even like her. But one day I bunked one of my lectures and came back to the room. I saw Sneha sitting in A's room. I thought it would seem very rude if I just walk off from there, specially when she had seen me, without saying anything. So I went upto her and asked after her. And we generally started talking. I guess it was that moment. We both didn't realise when time flew by us! We were so engrossed in our talks that it was A's arrival that made us realize we were talking for almost over an hour!

I read somewhere that God makes us meet many wrong people before we meet the right one so that when we do meet the right one, we can fully appreciate how special that person is.

There have been many ups and downs in my life. And during one of my lowest moments, when I didn't even have the so-called friends, it was Sneha who stood by me and helped me. All the way. There were times when I couldn't understand what I felt, wanted to feel or should feel. It was in those times when Sneha understood me and gave me strength to carry on. There are many things I cherish in my life, many people. But the one gift I will always hold next to my heart is the one because of which am here today, able to cherish other gifts.

We are lucky to have a choice. We have the choice to choose our friends. And our enemies. But in the end it's not the enemies who matter. But friends.
