Lucky, Grateful, Thankful

Every now and then, I hear comments on how lucky I am to still have friendships from my primary school days. A number of factors have played a role in this. First and foremost, the advent of social media, a catalyst that got us all reconnected in the first place. Thereafter, it is all about effort.
It is fair to say that for the most part, the majority of us keep in touch on whatsapp. It is much easier for those who are single to meet in person more often, either for meals or the occasional hike. Special occasions such as festivals are a greater incentive for those with families to find some time to join in the gatherings. Whatever the case may be, it is important to be grateful for such friendships.
For many, friendships that were formed as young kids are the longest relationships we have come to experience. And for that we ought to be thankful.
