I have friends who could drive to my place in fewer than ten minutes — but they do not check in on me as often as you. They do not make time for me as often as you. They do not care as much as you.
You have never failed me. In fact, you have always led by example of the type of woman I aim to be.
You wish you had friends close to you, friends you could physically hug, friends you could share a drink with on weekends, friends you could sit on the couch alongside.
A best friend who will always be on your side, even when she’s not. A best friend who is not afraid to disagree with you, even if it means you might argue.
I try to imagine what would have happened if you’d not been there during the times I needed someone. It’s difficult to imagine. It would have been difficult without you.
You grew into someone I do not recognize. Someone who does not seem to have any time left for me.
