Some friends come and go out of your life and that is only natural.
I am very thankful that I have a friend who has stayed.
Through the good.
Through the horrible.
Through the worst fashion statements, relationships and finances.
She loaned me my down payment on my house.
She showed up and stood by my side at moments I know that she was wincing and shaking her head.
And she talked about me in golden moments with pride and love.
Thank you for being my friend.
But, mostly thank you for being you.
I have called you at 6 a.m. repeatedly with my late night bright ideas.
You have made signs, took pictures and helped pay the bills.
You have had to deliver heartbreaking news to me but it was okay because I knew you loved me.
Our time together as single mom roommates was unbelievably precious.
I love you and I hope you have the happiest of birthdays.
Please don’t ever tell our secrets.
