Some time ago, my customer who treated me to lunch said "At our age, we don't make new friends. We're lucky if we don't lose old ones."
His words stuck in my head because he's already in his 60s and has seen some good friends die of old age and ill health.
A solid friendship often take years to forge. I've known my best friend for four decades. By now she can read my mind and I can finish sentences for her. We're close like sisters.
At my age, I thought I have no more capacity to develop strong and close relationships with new friends but I was wrong. I've become friends with a group of ladies, all of whom were met through the blog.
Then there is my Korean friend EY who is very dear to me. It's funny how well we can get along considering she picked CH's best friend as her husband.
