As I was saying in a past post, my friend Cleo came back to Manila from London after 11 months of staying there. We saw each other yesterday and talked till the wee hours in the morning. I really missed being with her. Even though we didn't see each other for a long time, it was as if we just saw each other yesterday.

After that meeting, I thought to myself --- how many friends like Cleo do I still have and keep?

I used to have many, many friends. But now, some of them aren't around anymore. Some moved abroad while some just drifted. I feel nanghihinayang sometimes for these lost friendships. Is it because I got married and become a mom that I'm not able to maintain my friendship with them? Or is it because these friends weren't genuinely my friends from the start anyway?

It's a bit sad but I'm looking forward to gaining new friends maybe somewhere else. I guess with a little more effort on my part, my list of good, good friends will grow.
