Dear Best Friend,

First of all, I would like to say thank you! Thank you for always being there for me when I needed you. Thank you for listening, even when I go on rants for hours just repeating the same thing over and over again. Thank you for making me feel special and important no matter what. From the day that we met, I knew that our friendship would be special and important. You were someone who I felt like I could talk to, joke around with, and share my secrets with from the beginning. I am appreciative of our late night walks and deep conversations. I cannot count the number of times that we have stayed up until three in the morning talking. While my body sometimes ends up regretting it the next morning, I most certainly do not because I love every opportunity I get to talk to my best friend. I enjoyed living on the same floor as you last year and seeing you every day. This past semester has been more difficult not living in the same building as you and seeing you every day, but I know that you are still there for me whenever I need you. I have come to realize when we do our catching up that we can relate to each other and we know exactly what the other person is going through because we either are currently experiencing or have experienced the same exact thing. You have never let me down and you have always been there to comfort and support me. You give the best advice, and sometimes you know what I need even when I do not realize it myself. I value the honesty in our friendship. We are able to be open and honest with each other and tell each other the truth even in difficult situations when we know it might not be what the other person wants to hear, but needs to. You make me feel safe. When I am in difficult or scary situations, I feel comfortable knowing I have around because I trust you and I know that I have you there to protect me. There have been multiple situations when you have been there to protect me from things that I did not even know I needed protection from. While the crazy adventures that we go on, usually late at night, may not be our wisest decisions, we always end up making memories and laughing about it afterwards. We could start off a night watching Beavis and Butthead or acting like them ourselves, but by the end of the night, we end up having deep life conversations about way the world is the way it is. I value all of these things about you, but most of all I value you for talking. I appreciate the fact that you show that you have an equal amount of trust in me as I confide in you. I will always love and cherish our friendship.

Thank you! I love you!

Tracy
