that other half

Dear Jenna, my other half. My best friend for as long as I can remember. The one who knows me better than I know myself.

Jenna, life is hard - I don't know why God has given you and me our seperate burderns, but I know that he has given me you to help me get through.

I'm not saying our friendship is perfect. But it is the best friendship I have ever had, or will ever have. in fact I can far enough to say that it is more than just a friendship: you are my family.You are my sister and I love you.

God's given me you to help me laugh when I want to cry. He's given me you to listen, to help me carry my burdens with perserverance. He's given me you to punch me when I need you to, to wrestle with me, to mess up my perfect hair-do, to remind me that the simple joys in life are the ones we choose to overlook. He's given me you to help me see through the lies and barriers that I put up around myself. By simply being there, Jenna, you have saved my life.  

We were little third graders, awkward around each other. We were maturing fifth graders, shy around each other. We were seventh graders, with our ridiculous hair. Now we are eighth graders ( are:), and I want you to be my best friend until I die.

Thank you...for everything. You've helped me hold on to myself and to God when all I wanted to do was let go. Love you, Smee.
