To The Two Sisters In Christ Who God Graced Me With

Through all my ups and through all my downs you always found a way to say something that kept me going.

To The Two Sisters In Christ Who God Graced Me With

A year ago I wrote a letter to you two. I planned to have us all meet up and I wanted to read it. However, life got crazy. Things happened, and to be honest I would have probably been so nervous to even read it out loud. I probably would have started tearing up when I began reading"Dear J and L." Plus, we are now in different cities (and even states.) I think getting us all on the same page is pretty cool. I promise I will try to bring my "Sappy Ally" down to a minimal. Without further ado, here is the letter.

Dear J and L,

When people ask me "what was one moment that God revealed himself to you?" I always reply with "when he gave me two people that have impacted my life and my heart tremendously." I then go on to explain my first year of college. I was in my dorm room and I felt that the Lord took everyone away from me. He took my friends I had for 12 years and I was stranded. I prayed every day that He would put someone in my life, just one friend who understood me. For a little while things were silent and things got to where I didn't really think he was hearing me. Until one day I wanted to get my hair cut (and not by the crappy workers at Great Clips) and one day I noticed something at church.

J, I remember the drive on the way to your house I felt this feeling. Now, I couldn't describe it. But I knew something was going to happen. I didn't really think that a friend of mine from high school would reach out to me and when she mentioned "she's Catholic, just like you" I didn't really think anything of it. When I met you I literally was like "oh my gosh, we need to be friends because I love how much you love Jesus" and my inner Jesus self came out. That's when I knew I had something in me that you helped me bring out.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

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.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
