It’s pretty crazy to really sit down and think about all that we’ve been through together and how we’ve seriously been together through it all. These people make up my second family. No words can describe how much they mean to me.
And this past retreat was our real last retreat together. And it was sad to think that this year would be our last together too and who knows where we’ll end up. With college coming up we could be spread out all over the country and only be able to see each other like three times a year. But I really do hope and pray that the distance will not tear us apart, friendship-wise. I think I would go insane.
When I think of them I just become full of thankfulness that I met such amazing people. And I know it’s not coincidence that we all became friends. We’ve had our share of ups and downs but we’ve all somehow stuck through and always came back together. Looking back these were the people who were there, prominently and silently, through the darkest times as well as the happiest times. These are the people I share my most treasured memories with. These are the people that know me the best. These are the people I can be completely honest with because I know our love for each other is unconditional. And that’s the beauty of it. That no matter what, we’ll be there for each other and love each other until the end.
I know I don’t show my appreciation for them hardly enough. But I really do hope they know that I do because I really do. I really really really really really do appreciate them for all they’ve done for me and just for being a part of my life and shaping who I am today and who I will be tomorrow. These people inspire me with their kindness, persistence, dedication, humor, and love.
They will always be in my prayers and thoughts and I pray to God everyday that we’ll continue to be best friends and that we won’t lose each other through the craziness of life. And that we won’t lost God either.
