My friends mean the world to me. They are there for me through the ups and downs of life. They make me smile and they make me cry (happy tears). Here are 8 reasons why I know they will be around forever

1. They are there for me whenever I need them.

I can call on them at 8 AM or at 2 AM and my best friends would be there for me.

2. I don’t remember life without them.

Whether I have known them for six months or six years, I don’t remember life without them. I feel like they have always been around.

3. We have the same values.

We value the same things in life. At the core, this is what keeps us close.

4. We get through everything together.

My high school best friends and I went through college applications together. My college best friends and I have gone through freshman year and all the struggles together. We stick by each other's sides.

5. We know too much about each other.

Not saying that just because I know everything about my best friends and can read their minds means we are going to be friends forever. It is the fact that we understand each other and know where our thoughts and feelings come from.

6. We know how to listen to each other.

It sounds like a simple task, but very few people are as attentive as my best friends. They wait for me to finish my, sometimes long, rants. They know, also, that I love listening to them as well.

7. We never sugarcoat with each other.

I’m never afraid to be honest with them, and they are never afraid to be honest with me, even if the truth will sometimes hurt. If I think a guy is just not that into them, I don’t create excuses. I know they would do the same for me. They don’t create “what ifs” to temporarily make me feel better. We’re way too close to sugarcoat anything.

8. Their family feels like my family.

We treat each other’s family like they are our own. Their parents are my extra set of parents and I have more siblings because of them.


So to my best friends, thanks for always being there in the past, being here now and being there for me in the future. I know you have my back and I will always have yours. Best friends forever.

A Thank You To My Boyfriend's Family

Because you are so important to him, you are important to me.

This one isn't easy to sit down and write because nothing I could say would do all of you justice in the way that I would hope I could. These are just words, but I hope that I am able to always show my thank you to you by treating him like the prince he is.

I can replay the moment of meeting each and every one of you all over and over in my head like it was yesterday. I was so extremely nervous every single time and I was trying to gather all the "right" things to say that would leave a good, first-lasting impression and that at the end of the day, you all would like me.

I think one of the most important basis and hopes in my relationship is that my significant other's family likes who I am. This is so important to me because whatever is important to him is equally important to me and your thoughts of me are crucial to our relationship.

The second I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed—overwhelmed with such a love. I had no idea at that point in time just how much you would all mean to me and how thankful I am for all of you!

Thank you for constantly making me laugh and feel at home.

Whenever I'm coming over for a family gathering or just to hang out, I know right off that I am walking into a world of laughter and good times are right beside that. You are all so entertaining and always have a good story to tell me. I can't name one time where I didn't feel like I was home.

And I appreciate the sweet, embarrassing photos and stories about my boyfriend that you all share with me! Even if it is by a photo, I have a glimpse of what his life has always been like thanks to each and every one of you individually.

Thank you for sharing your special moments in life with me.

You don't ever have to, but you invite me anyway. Whether it's just a family gathering, a birthday, or a holiday, I am thankful to have spent those times celebrating these moments in life alongside such amazing people. It's humbling and heartwarming to be a part of memories so unforgettable that you all share and that you have welcomed me to be a part of. They are days that I will never forget and have a place in my heart forever.

Thank you for always being there for him.

Since we have started dating, I have watched the way that you guys love him. I have watched the individual relationships and moments that you share with him make a difference in who he is. I have seen you all love and support him, no matter what he was doing.

With everything that comes along in life, this has been a simple reminder of an unconditional, loving, sacrificing family that is also the best support system. You are not only impacting him, but me, too.

Thank you for welcoming me in like your own.

Whenever you have to brave up and meet your significant other's family, I can say, for myself, that I didn't know what to expect. As I'm sure, none of you did when meeting me. Today, I catch myself wondering why I even worried in the first place. You all have welcomed me in your own ways and made me feel right at home. It is not always easy to do that with just anyone, but you have all taken the time to get to know me. And now I know that if I ever needed anything, I can call one of you.

Thank you for letting me date him.

I am most thankful for this. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving me a chance to show you all how important he is to me. I never thought that I would luck out and meet someone as special, kind, and wonderful as he is, but I did.

You have supported our relationship, given me a chance to love him, and welcomed me to new adventures in love and family. I have the upmost gratitude for each of you. You are the most wonderful, welcoming, and loving family. I am overjoyed to be able to experience just a glimpse of this life with him and with all of you.

A Goodbye To My Closest Friends

Leaving the girls who have always been by my side

214
views

The moment we've been dreading but also been counting down for all our lives

The time is here, it's time to say goodbye


All going separate ways, finding our own path

Our time here will soon be in the past

Pursuing degrees to be turned into jobs

Hopefully you will still have time to call


"Face time me every night" we say

"We can't lose touch, okay?!"


Thank you technology

It's like my best friends can still be with me

There are hundreds of miles between us

The adjustment is going to be tough

No longer within 5 minutes of each other

Who would've thought we'd ever been further?

A sad goodbye that will turn into the time of our lives


But for now, everyone cries

Packing up the car, getting ready for the trip

Say goodbye to our state, we will all miss

Time to move to our new homes

We will no longer be so close

But nothing can loosen our bond


Our winter and spring breaks better correspond

I'll be dying to see you

I'll miss you so much, you have no clue


Of course, at college we'll make new friends

But best friends forever means this friendship won't ever end


Thank you for all the laughs, time with you was never dull

Thinking about all our memories, my heart is full

I still want to hear every detail of your life even though I will no longer experience it beside you

Thinking about being away from you for months just doesn't feel true

The first couple weeks will be hard

Pictures of us hung in my dorm, you'll always be in my heart

It's time to go find ourselves


Go do things, go on adventures, have stories to tell

I love you best friend

and I will love you until time ends
