We live vicariously through our friends.
We see things through their eyes, we feel things through their hearts. We experience things through them that otherwise we would never experience in our own lives. We carry around little pieces of their hearts in ours. In the hope that during times of unbearable sadness or stress, we can lighten that load even a little by sharing the burden. And in the knowledge that during times of joy, excitement, happiness we multiply that love and those feelings exponentially by feeling them too.
And all those in between times. The boring, everyday, mundane times. Just to have them there, as part of you, even if they are far away.
Erene and Mark are on just about the most amazing journey you can go on with another human being. They are celebrating their engagement and preparing to welcome a new little person into the world. The love and joy and excitement they are feeling couldn’t be more deserved.
You are perfect for each other and your love will be the greatest gift your little one will ever receive.
Your happiness is shared by so many, because your friendship is treasured by so many.
And even when there are doubts and worries and fears, you are always in my heart.
Wishing you both all the happiness in the world. Xoxox
