Both our lives have taken us completely different directions when once upon a time, we were inseparable. We weathered junior high together, found first crushes, great ways of sneaking out of class and NSYNC. We grew into beautiful young women in high school, spent awesome summers getting tan and hitting the pavement in our tennis skirts, found more first loves and heartbreaks, fought hard and made up just as fiercely, shared dreams and ice cream, played Barbies and thought things would never change.
I know if you were here with me now, I know you would sit with me on the couch and ease some of my heartbreak because your heart is so big. I know you would chase my boys around and get down on your hands and knees a play cars and sing songs because, even as you grow into adulthood, you are still a little kid at heart. I know I would be sharing in your excitement and new dreams as you enter such a special time in your life, and we would probably laugh and eat more ice cream together.
Life has a funny way of smoothing you over, ironing out your past wrinkles, and helping you realize what is truly important in life. If there is anything that our past has taught us, is that love molds your heart and even though we've stepped in and out of each others lives, the memories and stories we made together, shaped a part of me today.
I am wishing you all the best from afar and maybe you will find the cookie dough in the milk aisle soon (because that's what you were trying do to in my dream ;)
