Memories of friendship keep hunting me down!

It's a universal truth that when you give good things, good things come back to you. However, sometimes you have a real friend that can do things for you to remember them for a long time if not forever, and other disappointing friends that gift you with a thorn after you gifted them with a flower. Some people treasure friendship, others don’t.

This Chinese friend is extraordinary; I taught her smart and darling daughter foreign language for some time. I like her very much nit only she was adorable and intelligent but also polite and interesting. Her mother is an artist, because of her daughter, she became a housewife and look after her and keeps drawing whenever she has free time. She is interesting, knowledgeable, helpful, caring, straightforward and sometimes witty. She used to assist me in the classroom whenever the assistant teacher was absent or late. She one day surprised me with the greatest gift ever, she drew a self portrait of me and put it in a beautiful frame, and that picture was my favorite philosophical one, facing the sunset and turning my back to the camera. I was deeply happy, that piece of art made me delighted.

Afterwards she became a friend of my wife, on my wife's birthday she sent her an astonishing gift, the gift symbolizes how artists think differently, how creative and romantic they are. She cut off a plant branch that has six leaves and glued it in a small rectangular frame, connected it to a chain. The six leaves represent the number of the years my wife and I have been together. I don’t know if it was a coincidence or done on purpose. But it was a fascinating thing. Well, the piece of art that can always be seen hanging on the wall reminds me of my friend. I remember my dear friend every time I lay my eyes on the necklace around my wife's neck. My father once said: you don’t miss the sun until it sets. Well, I was not sure what he meant, but now I realized the hidden meaning of those words of wisdom. My friend moved back to Poland with her beloved husband and a cute daughter. I wish her a happy life in Poland because she made my life wonderful and always am memorable.

Friendship has to be cherished

The friendship with one national opens one's heart for the whole nation.
