You're the kind of friend people actively pray for.

To The Friend I Expected The Least But Cherish The Most
Sarah Wagner

Oh Swamp Thing, where do I even begin?

Just 4 months ago I didn't even know of your existence, but now I can't imagine life without you!

When we first met, life was going pretty good! I had my degree, a full-time job that I loved (even more now that you're there), I was still running my blog, and I pretty much had everything I could ever want.

It's one thing to meet someone when you're at a low point in their life and that person changes their life for the better, but it's on a whole different level when you think you've got it all but God decided to make life better than it already was by giving me you!

When I first started going to poetry, I was mainly expecting to get back to doing what I love and growing as a writer surrounded by amazing people that share my passion.

I wasn't expecting to meet my best friend, but God has a sense of humor and a way of making things happen!

I knew we would be close after the Renaissance festival. You didn't know this at the time (which you do now), but I was battling an undiagnosed (now diagnosed) mental illness that greatly affected my ability to function.

Because of this, I didn't really allow myself to go out and have fun with friends.

However, for the first time in forever I was able to have fun.

On our way back to your car, I told you I "hadn't felt anything in forever, but I felt today". You wrapped me in a giant hug, and I knew you were a keeper!

I cannot tell you how much you've contributed to my life.

Thank you for everything you've done. Thank you for the trips to the coffee shop that were supposed to be "writing sessions" but ended up being deep talks.

Thank you for the fun nights in Cinco Ranch. Thank you for the holiday gifts and random treats here and there just because.

Thank you for the sleepovers, dinners and car rides.

Most importantly, thank you for being there for me when I can't even be there for my own self.

As you know, the diagnosis hit me hard. Every day is a struggle in one way or another, and sometimes life just gets to be too much.

Having someone that's willing to drive all the way to your house, pick you up and take you out for a day of fun simply because your brain decides to be mean definitely eases the burden.

Thank you for sticking with me through it all-the mood swings, the abandonment days, the frantic phone calls, you name it.

Thank you for being on this earth. Your name isn't "Angel" by coincidence; you are meant to be here.

The friendship we've built and will continue to build is absolutely priceless!

"Only priceless? You can't afford not to buy it!"

I love you more than you'll ever know, and I'll see you tomorrow!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
