Friendship

To the many friends that were in my life because of work, in Ireland and elsewhere, and to those who were in my life before MS crashed into my environment… thank you for the fun times, the many discussions we learned from, the trips we went on and the sorrow-free late evening chats…

To those that were in my life around the time of my diagnosis… thank you for being there when I didn’t understand what was happening, the silences we shared taking it all in and for visiting me in hospital and at home when I was unable to be there for you…

To the many new and fantastic friends I met in pain, in hospitals and online… thank you for accepting me into your life when you are battling the same fight yourselves…

To those that walked in and out of my life when it suited them most and not myself… thank you for showing me what real friendship should be like and for showing me I was a convenience instead of a friend…

To those who left for good because they couldn’t cope with my illness… thank you for allowing me to cut you out of my life and for giving me space to develop my life and needs without you…

To my fantastic family… you’re the best and thank you for the many laughs and slapstick moments…

And especially to the friends who have been there since day one, since we were 10 years old, 20, 30, 32 and now… you are the light of my life, my reason for being and proof that good people really do exist… You are my family even though we are not blood-related and you are my joy…

To those who might be part of my future… I welcome you with open arms, honesty, selflessness and a smile…© WVE and Ireland, MS and Me, 2011-2013.

    Dit is supermooi en hartverwarmend geschreven Willeke, ‘k weet dat je ook dikwijls artikels schrijft enz… nog nooit gedacht aan een boek? Met al jou interesses vindt je zeker nog velen te boeien… Dikke knuffel, Gratiane :-)

      Misschien wel, alhoewel ik meer van die korte dingen schrijf ipv een boek… maar het zit in mijn achterhoofd. Enne… bedankt voor alle steun Gratiane, ik apprecieer dit heel erg xxx
