Dear Best Friend

Dear Best Friend, I know life has chewed you up and spit you out. This whole year has been such a journey for you. Your friend at school decides she doesn't like you anymore, and throws away the bestest friend she will ever have in her whole life. She talks mean about you and spreads lies. I want you to know that none of the things she said defines you. You are not what she or her boyfriend labelled you as. You are so much more than that. Don't ever think about them again. They are not worth your time. They never will be. Ever.

Dear Best Friend, school has been hard for you, I know. You see everything that people do, and you notice everything, therefore you are so much more sensitive than anybody in the whole dang school. You look at people's hearts, not their outward appearence. You don't hang out with people just because they are popular. You don't become bitter when a guy breaks your heart. When you told me, I felt like smashing a window, but you looked at it from his perspective. When I called him a flipping jerk, you told me he wasn't one, because it wasn't his fault. I still think it was his fault.

Dear Best Friend, you and me are much more alike than I would ever have guessed. I know you feel ugly and fat and insecure, but you are not. You are the most beautiful girl I have ever known. You weigh ten pounds lighter than me - and just because I'm two inches taller than you doesn't make me any better than you. Short is good, because you'll always get to buy the smaller sizes.

Dear Best Friend, don't ever hate yourself. You make me laugh when I feel like crying. Just texting you or talking to you on the phone transforms my crappy day into a blessed one. Laughing with you makes me feel happy and it makes me forget everything that's going on.

Dear Best Friend, I love you and I will always be here for you. I can't make the pain stop but I will always hold you in my arms when it hurts the most. I can't make your life suddenly perfect, but I can always listen to you and pray with you. I am a better person because of you. Through everything that's going on in my life, through everything that's going on in yours, we have become better friends and better people. I will never forget the blessing you have been to me. I have had many friends but you are so much more than a friend. You are a sister. I love you forever.

Dear Best Friend, thank you for everything. Thank you for being who you are. Don't ever change otherwise I'll knock your block off. Don't ever stop eating podstickers with me at midnight. Don't ever stop stealing my phone and seeing how long it takes for me to find it. Don't ever stop persuading me to believe ridiculous things. Don't ever stop laughing with me over inside jokes. Don't ever stop sitting with me and making necklaces. Don't ever stop talking with me openly. Don't ever stop being you.

 Don't ever stop laughing like this. You are so beautiful the way God made you.

Bekah, that was such a sweet, touching post. I am so amazed that you dedicated a post to just telling your friend that you love her and that she is amazing. It was so beautiful because I know it came from your HEART.

Note: The Christopher Robin quote was perfect. :)

Love in Christ,
