Dear Friends

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011 @ 6:59 pm | Uncategorized

This past week I’ve really been reflecting on my friends.  Especially those I’ve had for 10, 15, even 20 years and more.  I realize (over and over again) just how lucky I am to have you.  And just how sad it is that I don’t stay in touch enough. You guys (er, gals) (since it’s really only my closest friends that read this, I’m gonna talk directly to you) (grammar faux pas!) … a’hem, let me start again. You mean the world to me.

I think back to how we met, the things we went through together, the good, the bad, the ugly; times I wish I could go back to or repeat, times I regret and wish I could do over. I think back to all the times you were there for me. The times I was an absolute jerk and you forgave me.  The times you supported me.  In high school and college, I was a complete mess and you stood by me.  You were there for me and truly cared for me.

You let me freak out when I needed to.

You rushed to my side during the darkest times of my life.

We road tripped together and somehow survived.

I destroyed our friendship and yet you forgave me.

You were the entertainment, the life of my party.

I pushed you onto your face, I stabbed you in the face (All Accidentally!), I apparently had it out for your face… yet you’re still my friend.

You were my duet partner.

You were my (upside down) Doctor Mario opponent. You filled my summer days with games.

You were my teammate.

You were my daily entertainment. My after-school distraction from homework.

You were, and most certainly still are, my second family.

I am so truly grateful for you and for everything you’ve been and done for me over the years. I love you with all my heart.  You are my friends, my family for life. Thank you.
