One of the best things.

It's always a pleasure to see an old friend- a friend you've valued greatly over the years, whose opinion makes the world seem a little more pinned down, just a bit less transitory and confusing. A friend whose perspectives on the world echo your own. A friend who you've seen through hard times- and who's seen you through hard times as well.
True friendship is a rare gift, and one that mercifully is always surprising: mercifully, because you can always view it as revelation, as celebration, even when you take it for granted that it was there.

Yeah, I know this sounds sappy. But it's true. Hopefully you get to your bed safely, and hopefully you sleep well- you mentioned you haven't been getting all the rest you need.
I'd missed you more than I knew: thank you, for the honor of your presence.
