To my best friend of 10 years,
You’re actually moving. In almost 2 weeks, you’re going to be gone. In almost 2 weeks, at 8 PM on a Friday night, you're going to leave in your dad's red truck. In almost 2 weeks, I'm not going to see you every Friday; every weekend; every celebration that we share as a family.
I’m going to miss you.
I won’t see you every weekend. I won’t see you at family parties. We won’t celebrate all the holidays that we usually do. I can't see you physically anymore. I won't be able to hug you anymore. I won't be able to do a lot of things we used to do together anymore. We won't be able to have movie nights or visit each other as often. You won’t come visit me at my dorm. Friday nights just won’t be the same without you.
I won’t be able to see you graduate. I won’t be able to be with you on your 18th birthday.
But, let’s face it; I really don’t know how old you are, so you could be turning 18 next year or in 3 years.
You’ve grown into such a beautiful, lovely woman in the past 10 years. I wish you could at least stay until your junior year ends. Then we would be able to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, 4th of July and your birthday together. Things won't be the same, but I will always cherish our memories together.
I’m going to miss you with all the life in me. Honestly, the idea of you moving in almost 2 weeks hasn’t hit me yet. I feel like it should, but it hasn’t. Never have I ever thought that it would be you moving away. I used to think it were one of the others, but no, it had to be you. And, it's okay.
Good luck in Washington. You're going to begreat. Don't be scared! School is going to be the same as it was here: a mess. But hey, cheers to new beginnings! Cheers to new memories. Cheers to everything that's going to happen.
I really hope that you'll be happy there.
I wish you and your family nothing but good luck and happiness. You guys are going to do wonderful there. Just remember that if you guys ever need anything, anything at all, we're all here for you. We're all rooting for you guys. We're all here praying for your whole family. We're all just a phone call away. Just remember that.
We all love you. Mahal kita, ading.
With all my love,
