6: Advent

I made this knit stripped beanie as a birthday gift for my friend Mike.

Tuck and I have been friends for years; I truly adore him and his wife. English has so many gaps. There should be a word to describe the type of friendship that requires no maintenance other than the ocassional check up when possible. A guilt-free friendship that thrives on its own accord, unconditional love understood.

Considering there isn’t a word for this, I’ll call it an aloe vera friendship. Aloe grows in the desert with little fuss. Thankfully our actually friendship is far less prickly.

Blessing for day 6: friendships that span decades, nations, marriages and so many other hurdles to show their strength.
