Shoutout to the #1 sister.

Here are 15 reasons why my sister is my best friend...

1. We both share the same interests.

Whether it's binging on that one TV show we both enjoy, eating snacks nonstop (while we watch that one TV show we both enjoy), or discussing things like books or life (or that one TV show we both enjoy). Did I mention eating?

2. Yet in some ways, we are completely opposite.

Whether it's in outfits, food, genres of songs or books, or our taste in men.

3. We both have so much fun together.

I always feel like I might get abs from all the laughing.

4. However, we have our occasional fights and arguments.

But, we know that we'll always make up right after. Nothing can tear us apart.

5. Even if we've been away from each other for awhile, we can always pick back up from where we last left off.

It's like we've never been away at all.

6. And we both call or text each other constantly.

We'll have withdrawals if we don't.

7. She gives good advice and is always honest.

...brutally honest. But that's always a good thing.

8. She'll tell me when I'm wrong.

She's only trying to help me and is looking out for my best interests, so I gratefully welcome this.

9. But she never judges me for things.

She might laugh, though. Unless it's something serious. She's all ears.

10. Maybe that's because she will always join in on my ridiculousness.

We're both like Ethel and Lucy, coming up with the craziest ideas and then trying to figure out how to get out of trouble.

11. She always knows what I'm thinking.

I don't even need to say a word; it's like we can read each other's minds. And we even sometimes finish each other's sentences.

12. I can tell her anything.

She'll take my secrets to the grave and I know I can rely on her.

13. Anyone I don't like or who is rude to me, she automatically doesn't like.

She's always on my team.

14. And I know she's always there for me.

I can always count on her. No matter what.

15. I don't know what I would do without her.

We might not get along 24/7 but she is my absolute best friend. A life without her would be incomplete.

An Open Letter to the Best Friend I Didn't See Coming

Some people come into your life and change you forever—thanks, bestie.

Dear best friend,

I wasn't expecting you when God placed you in my life. I had my friends. I had my people. I wasn't exactly open to the idea of new meaningful friendships because I had the ones I needed, and it didn't seem like I really needed anybody new.

Thank God that was false. Sometimes you meet people and you just know that you're going to be good friends with. Sometimes you meet people and you realize that there is no such thing as chance. I think God has a funny way of making it seem as if the things that happen to us are by chance, but honestly, that’s a load of crap. If the biggest moments of our lives were left up to chance, then I believe that would make God out to seem as if he didn’t care. It would make it seem as if He was truly abandoning me and making me face some of my most important seasons fully isolated. But you, best friend, are a true testament to the fact that God doesn’t just leave such important aspects up to chance. Thank you for taking a chance on our friendship, and thank you for allowing me to take a chance on what I didn’t realize would be the most impactful friendship in my entire life.

Thank you for being real with me. Thank you for not sugar coating things. Thank you for telling me when I have a bad attitude. Thank you for loving me through my mistakes. Thank you for supporting me in my decisions, even if it isn’t always the decision you would make. Thank you for wanting the best for me, and for making that your true intent behind the words that you say to me, whether they be constructive criticism or encouragement.

Thank you for being a goof with me. Thank you for putting me first. Thank you for seeing the importance of our friendship. Thank you for making time in your schedule for us to just sit and do homework, eat Mexican food, or sit on the porch and listen to music that emotionally wrecks you.

You’re one of a kind. You’re a shoulder to lean on. You’re a safe place. You’re a free spirit. You’re rough and tough, but your heart melts for the people you love and it’s obvious. You’re more than meets the eye. You are worth getting to know. You are worth loving. You pursue people. You are passionate about your future. You are everything that a person needs, and I really thank God that for some reason you continue to choose to be in my life. Thank you for literally dragging me up my mountains of fear when I want to stay exactly where I am at and wallow in the sadness. You bring joy—true joy—wherever you go. You are my best friend, confidant, and biggest fan. You will be the Maid of Honor, Godmother, and fun Aunt.

I used to think lifelong friendships weren’t really a thing. It just seemed like people always grew apart and forever was never a point that was attainable. Best friends forever is a cliché phrase that is continuously overused nowadays (sometimes, I even used to make light of it), but thanks for making that a reality. You are truly the best friend I could have asked for. So thank you for it all. You make life more fun, and I couldn’t thank God more for making an incredible human, friends with me.

I love you, pal!

To The Ones Who Are Always There, Thank You And I Love You

Sure, we may not always get along or see eye-to-eye, but at the end of the day, I know they only want whats best for me.


In your life, you go through the phases of friend groups, best friends, and boyfriends — yet we feel lonely at times too. But there are two people who have been there for us since day one and I know always will be, our parents.

Sure we may not always get along or see eye-to-eye but at the end of the day, I know they only want what's best for me. My parents are some of the strongest and most independent people I know, they have taught me things separately and together. And without them, I wouldn't be the strong independent person I am today.

My mom has always been my best friend, someone I can turn to in times of happiness and sorrow. And she always has some of the best advice. She's taught me patience and to treat everyone with kindness.

A mom can be your best friend and your enemy, but they always want what's best. Even if they don't always see your side of the story, sometimes they are the unbiased opinion you need.

A mom can be there when your crying at 2 a.m. over a boy, but also be the one to sit you down and tell you that you are the dummy for getting back together with him. They are the person who will hype you up with the girl in your fifth period does nothing but tear you down. She's there with the best advice in the worst times.

My dad has always been my motivation, the one who knows my full potential even when I don't. He pushes me to be the best me I can be. Even when I think I'm already there, he pushes me harder and shows me everything I am capable of.

A dad can be your coach, your leader, and your teammate.

They can push you past your limits sometimes, but they always just want you to do everything you are capable of. A dad can be someone who has the most wisdom even when you think you are the smartest person in the room. They can grind your gears with the sarcastic comments and the way they always prove you wrong. But no matter what, they teach us life lessons on a daily basis.

There are the small things, and big things, that our parents do that make us who we are today, so go to your parents and give them the biggest hug you can. Tell them thank you and I love you.

Because they are the ones who are always there.
