It was one of the darkest times of my life. I'd hit bottom on many levels: having broken up with my love and moved back to my home town many states away, staying with my best friend and sleeping on her sofa bed, unemployed, trying to get back into school, and feeling very helpless. My friend and I were coming home from the grocery store. As I walked in the door of her apartment, suddenly the lights came on, all of my old friends were there, decorations, cake, even presents! Everyone there to welcome me back home, let me know they still loved me and supported me, and it was my best friend who had called them all up (some were common friends, some were not) and got them all together to do this for me. It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life, and was one of many lessons about what true friendship is.
