My wonderdogs took me for a walk today. We spotted these unlikely pals.
Not to fret. There was a canal between the dogs & me & these guys (or gals – I didn’t check). During the rest of our walk, I was pondering the unlikely friendships in my own life:
the ones where we began thinking we had NOTHING in common, but were soon amazed, humbled and honored;
the ones where our differences were SO distinct that we actually complimented and taught each other MUCH;
the ones where every time we spoke, we could count on an argument. And while those arguments were never FIXED, we did choose to live with the difference;
and of course, the ones where we both realized that friendship was an unrealistic expectation. So we chose to remain aware of each other – at a safe distance.
Just so you’ll know, when Aslan, Blossom and I passed the same point that’s pictured above on our way home – the gator was still there and so was one of the turtles.
Two things I know for sure is that Nature teaches us that long lasting friendships are rare – I need to treasure them. AND not everyone’s gonna like me. Sometimes it’s best to run.
What about your unlikely friendships?
