A Letter To My Friends Since Birth

We walked into the nursery one day, and automatically knew that we were gonna be there for every tear cried, every laugh, and every achievement.

A Letter To My Friends Since Birth

We walked into the nursery one day, and automatically knew that we were gonna be there for every tear cried, every laugh, and every achievement.

Maybe not exactly, but we can only guess that's what happened considering we could only wet our diapers and slobber everywhere. We've been friends for so long, I cannot even recall the first day I met you guys. I cannot remember our first fight, or any of our first memories together. We walked into pre-school together with no idea what the future held, and in just a few weeks, we will be walking out of high school together, ready to go our separate ways.

We fought, and cried, and laughed, and even separated for a while. Our 10th grade year, everything changed and we became, after years apart, closer than we have ever been before. We are five complete different people. We are dancers, singers, soccer players, drummers, health nuts, baby sisters, older sisters, introverts, extroverts, pro-bowlers, writers, slackers, nappers. We are hundreds of trips to Starbucks, pizza activists, Nerf War Champions, One Tree Hill lovers. We are thousands of midnight talks, secrets kept, broken bones, recreated pictures, advice given.

So many memories are held inside my heart from the years spent with you guys. It's completely unbelievable that in a few short weeks, we are going our separate ways. We are future PTs, Speech Therapists, and "I have no idea what I'm doing with my life"s. Our last group hug before college move in days is coming up quickly, and just in case I've never shown it enough to you guys, I want to leave a few words with you guys until I see you during Christmas and Spring Breaks.

Never give up on yourselves. Never let someone tell you that you cannot do something; prove them wrong. never forget your roots, where you came from, and the people who loved you before and after you found out the person you were. never forget the people who love you despite the situation, the people who will hug you and pick you up on your worst days, and the people who will build you up and encourage you on your best. Never forget that God has a purpose for everything, and his plan may not always be our plan. When you feel lonely, or scared, or like you can keep moving on, remember the four other girls who moved through life with you, and know they are never too busy to answer the phone and remind you how much they love you and how much you are loved.

I wish you all the best for luck in life, and wherever the Lord takes you. Don't forget about me ;)

I love you.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
