We have the type of friendship that is better than what you see in the movies. People look at us and wonder if we are lovers, and we don't really care. We are basically attached at the hip.
We have the kind of friendship that is real loving kind of friendship.
Truly, we are stronger together. We can't always explain our love in words, but I feel it inside and out. I am blessed I have you all day, every day.
You are the ones worth getting into trouble with. You make life worth living in fact.
Our crazy nights wouldn't be the same with anyone else.
I know that when we are together every cell inside of me is constant, is vivid, and knows we are infused with a force that will never go away.
You ladies are my soul mates. My forevers, and my best friends.
And I owe you more than just a mere thank you.
I owe you for our late night chats, our never ending shoulders to cry on, our fusing systems running with each other. You guys guide me in ways I could never imagine.
You comfort me when I am alone, and your loyalty and love, you guys keep me going when my world seems to be caving in.
You guys make me a better person.
You remind me what true kindness means. You keep me straight and grounded, even though sometimes the world seems to crumble around me.
When I am with you I am reminded that everyone has battles, but they don't have to face them alone.
You ladies have taught me to be okay with myself, that my deep belly rolls are mine. That our inside jokes (even if no one else finds them funny) are worth telling, and my stupid decisions don't define me.
And for threatening to beat up anyone who even slightly upsets me.
Our friendship models how I choose to live my life in this world. How I choose to relate to others. I choose to be kind, and loving and share with them the way you all share with me.
It is the push and pulls you guys give me, to do better and better. It means everything.
It is everything.
So thank you for carrying me. For holding me. For reminding us at any time we can pick up where we left off. Because distance can't hold us and you will love me all the same.
We are forever, and I will never let you go.
Thanks for being the lights that keep sparkling alongside me.
