I read somewhere, God sometimes sends Angels in form of friends.
Most of us would agree. Six years ago, Oct 2000, God sent one such Angel, Casy to me. No one has touched my life, as Casy has done. She is a Mother when I am weeping, she is a Dad when I make mistakes and need support, she is a Sister when I have to share secrets, she is Brother when I need to deal with this bad world, she is a Philosopher when I need some sense (I severely lack that). She painstakingly replies to my mails, calls me. Me a bad girl, I don't call her regularly nor reply to all her mails (but I read them), but, she understands.
What do I say about her? She is my first Boy Friend. Jokes apart, she has been my guiding star.
When I sit to count my blessings, she is always there on that list.
