To my hometown best friends,
Simply put, thank you. I know that will never be enough, but that is the easiest way to express my gratitude and overall love for you guys. I know it is cliché but thank you for being you. Thank you for listening to my rants. Thank you for encouraging me to make the right decisions with my future. For many years, we have watched each other grow up, acted carelessly, enjoying the times together, acting completely stupid, and not caring what others said about us. You have taught me to be the person who I am.
We all have been through, what seems like a lifetime, of hard times. I am lucky enough to have you by my side in all of it. No matter the day or time, you were always there to make me laugh, cheer me up, or tell me what direction to walk in. Thank you for getting me out of the house and making sure I have fun when it seems like my life is falling apart. It means the world to me that I can look to you as a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen.
I know we do not call each other best friends because we are way more than that. You never fail to tell me when I am acting stupid or when I am complaining about something completely dumb. You make me a better person, and I do not know many others who can do that. I want to be a better version of myself because you motivate me to do so. You point out what I can improve on, which I am greatly appreciative of, without bringing me down. Because of you, I strive to be best that I can possibly be.
Although the college has drawn has miles and miles apart, I know I can always count on you to be there for me. The distance has helped us grow closer together if that is even possible. Our bond and friendship have become stronger than ever before. I am so happy to maintain what we have these past two years. Not everyone can say that they are still close to the friends they had before college.
If I write out every reason as to why I am lucky to have you in my life, we would be here forever. So, I will keep it as simple as possible. I know that no matter where we go in life, I can always count on you. Thank you for all that you do for me. I cannot wait to see what our future holds and to have each other by our sides.
Love you with all of my heart,
