I’m for real blown away sometimes when I think about my best friends and how awesome they are. A best friend is someone who can make you laugh until you can’t breathe, then drives you to the ER afterwards. can lay out for hours talking about dreams, road trips, parties, plans, families, goals, life, secrets… and after talking about everything hands you a piece of paper and says write it all down and lets check it off as we go. Someone who when you tell them what you want to accomplish in your life doesn’t laugh but gives you encouragment and resources and pushes you to pursue your dreams. No matter how incapable you feel- they believe in you. They know you so well that they don’t even need to communicate some things with more then just a look of acknowledgment or slight grin. Someone you can wake up at 3am cuz you’re crying for no reason and need someone to hold you and make u laugh. Someone who doesn’t take “fine” as an answer. They know you’re faults, scars, wounds and battles and not only accept them but fight them beside you and for you when you’re too weak. They know your favorite songs, foods, colors, styles, places, quotes, smells, sounds and things to do. They text you on your break at work and say “come outside I haven’t seen you today yet and want a hug”.. and are waiting in the parking lot just to say hi and drop off a coffee. They see your soul for who you are, and put you at ease. They give you sound advice and talk to you about decisions your making in your life, and although they don’t agree they say their piece and tell you they’ll stand by you anyway. When that decision blows up in your face they don’t say I told you so… they don’t say a word they just sit and cry with you, and hold your broken heart. They show up unannounced at the right times because they just felt like you needed them. They read your thoughts and imitate your laugh, actions, and things you say perfectly. They say “ok” and grab their jacket and shoes when you look at them at 11pm and say lets go to the beach. They are the joy in your life and something I think I don’t realize everyday how blessed I am to have. Heres to having not one or two but many friends in my life I can call my Besties :)
I’m forever blessed.
