My best friend and I have many opposing views on life. Mainly in the last one year. Argument after argument. We’ve been friends for like 15 years or close to that. And despite our quarrels we’re there for each other. We’re different but we’re friends for life. We have our ups and downs. Sometimes at the same times. Now I’m having some ups. She’s having downs and the first to call was me. Her grandmother was taken to hospital. She’s been fighting with cancer for years now and recently she refused to take more treatments, to have blood transfusion or anything. She’s been feverish and she lost weight in the past few weeks. We both know her end is near. And despite all of our arguments I’m there for her. It doesn’t matter now what we’re disagreeing about or why we argued two days ago. We’re friends and she needs all the support she can get. Suddenly all those petty things are gone. They no longer matter. The only thing important now is the true friendship, the love and loyalty I feel for her for more than a decade. In good times and bad times. That’s what friends are for. That’s what friendships are about. That’s what being human is about to rise above the small things to help each other in need.
