As I was reading my earlier post just now–where I referred to a particular meeting with a certain friend as a gift, it dawned to me. The statement is not entirely correct and is actually rather ignorant. I should have said “any meeting with any friend is a gift.”
In fact, any friend is a gift, period. And I am blessed with so many of them in this life. I just wish I do not disappoint them (or You) too much. I just hope that I can return their (or Your) favor somehow.
PS: Thank you (and You) for pointing that out to me last night.
