Teman Teman (Friends)

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
~Ecclesiastes 4:12

The world would be so blah without friends. In a previous blog, I recorded my struggle to build friendships with my roommates. Some friendships you have to fight for. Some they are just pure blessings. My friendships with Satyajeet, Jimmy, and Darme are kind of like that. Satya is a high school teacher from India. We call him Papa Jeet for short since he sponsors many of our outtings, and we often say "Thank you Papa Jeet" and rub our heads on his shoulder. Jimmy and Darme are Indonesians. Jimmy is an Ambonese singer whose slapstick humor just makes you roll on the floor; Darme is a Batuknese pre-school principal who always carries candy with her wherever she goes.

We've been there for each other through hell in a hand basket and back. We've laughed till our stomachs hurt, been through depths of each other's despair, or maybe just Darme's and mine, and have challenged one other in our walks with God, giving each other room to make mistakes and grow. I appreciate Satya and Jimmy's sense of humor. They are walking comedians. If I want to laugh after a long stressful day, I just hang out with these two. Darme, on the other hand, helps to balance the testosterone. One minute we can be so deep, another silly like little girls. Once in a long while, God blesses me with an incredible group of friends, and they've made my life so rich in so many ways. Some people you just feel so comfortable with that you don't mind sharing the most embarrassing moments in your life and still feel so yourself around them. They are the spices of my life. Bersyukurlah...
