I Have More Than One Best Friend

And That's Okay....

I Have More Than One Best Friend

I was always told that I could only have ONE best friend. This was always hard for me to understand. It was always so hard to try to put one of my friends above the other. Yes, I do have friends that are closer to me than others, but how do you decide which one gets the label "best friend." And I'm not saying that every person I meet is my best friend, either. I have three best friends and they each play an important role in my life. And I think this is how it is for everyone, but most people feel like they are only allowed to label one. I have given up on trying to label one single person as my best friend. I want to give each one the credit they deserve for being such a huge piece of my heart.

My Childhood Best Friend

You are the best friend that has always been here for me. We have literally grown up with each other. Somehow you never left my side even through my awkward middle school years. I'm pretty sure you are the only one that can say you witnessed my "bigger days" and still loved me just the same as you do now.

You have listened to all of my dreams and drama without judging me, though it was probably hard not to. You have always told me exactly what I needed to hear even if at the time I didn't want to hear it. We have so many inside jokes and memories that it is hard to keep ourselves from laughing when we are together. We quickly became a part of each other's families.

There was never a church event or family vacation that you were not a part of. Your family took me as their own. Spending the night with each other always turned into spending the week with each other. We never went to each other's house without a bag that had enough clothes for the next month. Our parents would have to make us go home, but we weren't apart for long. Your mom and dad are my second parents and your sisters quickly took me in as their big sister, too.

My future husband will have to learn that when you are around, you're not the third wheel. He is. My kids will call you their aunt, and they won't know any difference between you and their aunt by blood. You will be their family, and they will never know anything different.

My Best Friend That I See All The Time

You are the one that puts up with me the most. Thank you for the time that you have dedicated to our friendship. You always make time for me. You constantly put up with me. You literally see every side of me. You hear my day to day rants and everyday you listen to them without complaint. You handle all of my giggles, tears, screams, and squeals. You are the one that I come to as soon as I have a problem, and you always try your best to make it better or fix it. I

come to you with everything. You know everything about me and still choose to love me. You aren't afraid to be honest with me whether it is about my boy problems, school, or even if the clothes that I try on are cute or not. You aren't afraid to laugh with me or at me when I'm being silly. You talk about Jesus with me and it means the world to me. You are the one that my future husband will have to get used to you knowing every detail of our relationship.

He will have to get used to the fact that somethings are between me and you. One day our kids will grow up together and we will take multiple trips to Disney together. You will always be the one that I come to.

My Best Friend Who Happens To Be My Boyfriend

You are the one who has a special place in my heart. You were my best friend even before we started dating and that is so important to me and our relationship. You are the one that keeps a smile on my face and keeps me laughing at all times. You are constantly encouraging me to do better in school and to grow in my relationship with Christ.

You are the one that I constantly want to talk to or be with. There is never a dull moment with you. You are the one that I want to tell everything to. No one understands me the way you do. You know all of the things that bring me joy and happiness. You know all of my fears and frustrations. You listen to everything that goes on in my life. You are the first person that I want to tell when something new or exciting happens. It may not even be new or exciting to you, but you still choose to listen and care.

There are days where you just hear endless rants and I talk your ear off, but there are also days where I don't say anything at all. You know when you just need to listen, but you also know when you need to butt in and calm me down. You let me be dramatic without judging me, but you also aren't scared to let me know when I am being too dramatic.

Our conversations are my favorite. Especially the ones about Jesus, grace, and love. Our friendship comes first in our relationship and that means the absolute world to me.

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.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
