I'm Happy You are Here

Those were the words that the priest asked us to say to our seatmate last Thursday at St. Jude. I was with my two friends, one whom I consider holds a very special place not only in my heart but in my life.
I was not able to see him for almost two weeks, so I definitely missed him. I had an upper household that night and I was the host. I could have opted to hear the earlier novena masses but I did not, because,
1.It was my commitment to hear the mass at 7pm with my other friend
2. I wanted to be with my very special friend.
But then, he (friend 2) had an argument just because of that the day after. And it was through sms. I admit it was my fault.I would not elaborate on the matter. Chismis na yun.
Saturday came and a few days before he wanted me to come to the Child Youth Development Forum: Community-based Learning. October 6-8 is the GK EXPO at Mall of Asia, in celebration of GKs 2nd anniversary.I was defeated and crushed that even if I waited for that event for about a month (I'm not sure), because I know how wonderful it would be, I DID NOT COME.
The following day I received an SMS which is a reply to mine and it made my heart bleed more. It was so bad that I was walking through the streets and rode a jeep with tears falling on the way to a friend's house 4 kilometers away. (But hey, I even asked the driver's assistant to give me an exact change!) I don't care how people saw me.
Two hours later I heard the mass, and somehow, it lightened my burden. Then we went to the GK EXPO. The activities were already through but we managed to see the exhibits and even had a free massage at the back, arms, and legs of our body.
Evening came it was time for our batch reunion. Take note that special friend is my batchmate and he was the one who organized it. Though we acted like there's no problem, the moment I fear came - he would not bring me home to my place before he gets to his. So there. We just uttered a soft and sad "bye" as I got on the jeepney.
This morning I also asked for an apology. Again, via SMS. I know he loves me and it pains him to see me hurt.
I am waiting for our prayers to be granted.
