A Month

A month ago, I hugged my friend, and I told her goodbye.
Katie is the "bestest" friend I've ever had...
Even half way across the world.

At first, I was scared that she would forget. Forget me, forget all of the memories we had. I thought she would temporarily not remember what she had here, and she would make new friends, have new ideas. I was scared she was going to change, monumentaly, and that I wouldn't be able to meet her expectations as someone who would be able to adapt to her new personality (if she had one) and still be a friend.

Then I realized I was being silly.

We seem to have this thing, between us, where we grow together. As friends, we have an understanding with each other where we learn new things. We experience things together. We hurt together. I don't think that I will ever have to worry about the above anxieties. God seems to be shining some light on this friendship. I have nothing to worry about. God is showing me His love through her. I'm learning more then I ever have before through this friendship. And, I'm so glad. All that to say,

I miss you Katie.

  1. Beautiful post. My best friend and I are like that.
    It's amazing how God puts a person that is so perfectly suited for your personality in your life. It's one of the best gifts.

  2. Thank you. It sure is, I guess that's why He's God and all, ya know?

  3. Hey, thanks for the comment and the following! I also have a dear best friend like that. It's getting a little tricky as we're getting older, but I know we'll be tight forever.

  4. Hey! You're welcome. You've got a cool blog! I love it when friendships are like that. Even though you get stretched, God sure fills in the gap. :)

  5. Awww :) this almost made me cry. I read a quote somewhere that said: “The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.” Elisabeth Foley

    I miss you Ali!!
