TO MY MARIE
We have been friends for many moons now. We have chased bunnies in your backyard, started an Oprah fan club, designed iron on spandex wear and have developed a silent laugh that has been known to cause pant pissage. We lost touch, got back in touch and were able to pick up like no time had passed at all. You know more about me than anyone on the face of the earth and you "get" me, when no one else does. We have a sixth sense about each other's moods and quite possibly have ESPN when it comes to one another.
You may not be my oldest friend, but you are certainly my closest. (Are you tearing up yet you old sap?)
You will be getting married in a few weeks and your life will be over...LOL...
No...seriously. You will be getting married in a few weeks and if I were able to be there I would have said all the things mentioned above.
The greatest thing about a friendship like ours is that no matter where life takes us we will always know where to turn when times are good or when they aren't so good. When you need a laugh, you know I'll be here, and if you need to cry, I'll say something to make it better and if you just need an ear, I won't say anything at all.
I love you hidey. (our nickname for each other)
I can't wait to see you next week. How blessed am I to be able to jump on a plane and be there for you on the day of your bridal shower? How blessed are you to be graced with my presence...HA!
