I haven’t seen my best friend Iza ever since we moved here to Baguio two years ago. We also lost touch because we were both busy with work, I did not (and still don’t) have a mobile phone and she doesn’t have internet connection at home. But lately we’ve been emailing each other a lot and catching up on each other’s lives, and I realize how much I miss the girl. I’ve known her since highschool, we were inseparable then and shared almost everything to each other.
She got married way before I got pregnant with Svet, but I learned that it was just several months ago that she gave birth to her darling daughter. She told me she and her husband are both working, and her baby is left with the babysitter. She doesn’t know the sitter so much, so she instructs them to go to her mother’s house (it’s not far away from where they live) while both of them are away. I suggested security cameras for protection, and she says she has in fact bought a couple and they’re just waiting to be installed. I could babysit if we were near, but unfortunately, we’re far away from each other.
I promised her I would go to their house together with Svet when we go to Bulacan in June, and I would most certainly keep that promise because I miss her so much. I realized that I haven’t been as close to anyone else as I’ve been close to her, and I don’t think I ever will. How about you? Are you fortunate like me to have found a best friend for life?
