But I feel really happy today. I am so incredibly blessed! My parents are amazing and give me far more than I deserve. And my grandparents are amazing.. and my friends spoil me with their love, friendship, and support. I honestly don’t know what I would do without each and every one of them. I can only hope that they realize how important they are to me.
Katie, your personality is so much like mine, and I wish we had become friends sooner than we did! I love you! You inspire me with your strength despite all the suck that happens in life, and with your incredible faith in God. I only wished we lived closer so we could spend more time together! I also love how we can go long lengths of time without talking, but we still are just as close as before. And when we do spend time together, I feel like we grow closer each time! I would go crazy without you!
Lauren, you and I are new friends, but you have this special outlook on life that is unlike anyone else I know. You remind me how to be a better friend and how to communicate more effectively. I love your focus on your future, it helps keep me on track to know that I’m not the only one going crazy with these crazy professors! And the relationship between you and Jorden reminds me that love is possible and helps me be hopeful for my own future.
Tonya, I am so glad that we were born into the same family, I’ve been blessed by having you as a friend my entire life. You have such a kind soul and are you are full of talent. I love that you have the same appreciation for art and music as I do. Its special and its nice to know that even if everyone else gave up on me, you will always support me and my dreams of being an artist :)
Brandi, you and I have some serious ups and down because like me, are you are so stubborn and hard headed, but thats what I love about you! You stand up for yourself and you don’t let anyone mess with you. You have a strong personality and I feel like whenever I am around you, I can be myself without feeling like I have to try too hard. I also love our similar expensive taste in handbags ;)
Lindsay, you are the craziest friend I have. Its always funny to me how we used to hate each other. But honestly, I don’t know what I was thinking. If I had been friends with you sooner, I think that I would have been a lot happier in high school instead of so rebellious! You are honestly one of the most gorgeous people I know! I was always jealous of your gorgeous eyes and ability of wearing makeup so beautifully! I’m thankful to have you in my life!
I have other friends too, but these ladies have managed to keep me sane through all the crap I’ve been dealt in the past 3 years. I don’t think I would have survived anything this last year without you guys. I know that you guys will always be my friends, and that this is just the beginning of a lifelong friendship with each of you, new friends, and old. Thank you for being so wonderful!
Learning to be okay without having someone there beside me, is one of the most difficult things to go through
Forever I have wandered, wishing, hoping you would notice me
But at the end of every day, I fall asleep knowing only that I am alone, and that I will be until you realize how much you mean to me.
