today is international friendship day, so I thought this is a good opportunity to tell you how much I love you. I’m writing this to thank you girls from the bottom of my heart for your friendship. You have no idea what it means to me to have such lovely people in my life.
I was never the most popular kid on the block, but I was always lucky enough to have some great friends in my corner. Thank you for sticking up for me, when others try to bring me down. Words cannot express how grateful I am for everyone who never gives a damn about what others have to say about me. When the whole world seems to be against you, you realize who you’re real friends are. The people who are willing to go to war for and with you are the ones you should keep around. And I’m grateful to have warriors by my side.
Some of my greatest memories in life are moments I shared with you. I will forever remember all those nights when we danced until the break of dawn. All the inside jokes we still share and laugh about. All the boys we talked about, chased down – ok, let’s call it minor stalking – and helped each other with. All those times we got drunk and just had the best time ever. The sleepovers, the movie nights, the trips, the festivals, the shopping sprees and all those years some of us went to school together. So many firsts we shared and I’m sure there are a lot more to come.
I want to thank you for every smile you put on my face, for every tear you dry, for every hug we share. Thank you for being there to fix me, after being left with a broken heart. Thank you for making your home always feel like home to me. Thank you for being more than friends – for being sisters at heart. Thank you for holding my hair when I get sick after partying too hard. Thank you for picking up the tab, when I’m broke. Thank you for always having a place for me to sleep. Thank you for always lending me an ear to moan about all my first world problems. Thank you for taking pictures of me over and over again, until I’m satisfied. I know you hate it.
I am grateful that you trust me with your kids and pets because I know that isn’t always an easy thing to do. It means the world to me. And I also thank you for telling me when I’m in the wrong, without judging me. You make me a better person. Thank you for letting me know how much I mean to you, because knowing that I’m an important person in your life fills my heart with joy. You know that I would do anything for you, no matter what time of day it is, and your appreciation is very special to me.
You make my world go round and you’re always the light at the end of a dark tunnel. I know that no matter what happens to me or what I do, you will be there. And I know that some people come and go and that is ok, but I’m sure that I have found some soulmates that will be by my side until we’re gray and old. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us and I’m looking forward to every single moment we will share.
I love you and I’m grateful that I’m on this earth the same time as you are.
