And She Greets The Day With: Day 1- Your Best Friend.

Hey, So first off I’d like to say that I admire you SO much. You have been through enough, and you still strive to be the best you can be. Nothing has ever stopped you, nothing will ever stop you, and that is something that pushes me to excel in anything I do.   Thanks for being a great friend, and I know that there are times where I do want to punch you in the face, but you know, it never change the fact that I love you and you love me. From the nights of staying up all night and talking, to the nights we’ve talked about our families, we have bonded through the years and I know that you will always be there for me and the same thing here. Now, hurry up and get back from Austin, Texas because I miss you. ...more
