Note: This was supposed to be a letter to my best friend, but since I have two…well, that explains my title :)
Dear best friends,
I’m guessing the reason this starts out with a letter to you guys is solely because they presumed it wouldn’t be difficult. But, what do you say to those people who are a part of everything you say and do? Luckily, I never shut up (everyone knows this, but you guys know this too well). So of course, I would have things to say!
Firstly, A. For 10 years (and counting), we’ve been building a friendship that’s withstood a whole load of obstacles, and seen some wonderfully good times, too. We’ve seen each other grow – from teenagers running through the hidden staircases in our building, to young twenty-something women finding our calling in this big world. All the while, knowing that if either of us were to stumble, the other was going to be there to catch us. For the past six years, I was there for you and vice versa. But the only thing missing was a physical presence. Now, finally, we shall be in the same country! I look forward to making the memories we’ve missed out on. And know, if you need me, give me a bit of a notice. I shall jump on a plane for you in the middle of the night, even, just because I love you so! You were, are, and always will be, the Rachel to my Monica.
No, J. In the middle of showering my pretty lady here with love, I haven’t forgotten you! I want you to know that, though we’ve known each other for about half the time that I have known A, you both hold an equally important place in my life. And my heart. If you weren’t there when I moved to another country, I don’t think half my amazing memories could have been made. We’ve been through some stuff in each other’s lives together, and I knew if I needed it, I’d always be able to count on you for a hug, and a reason to smile. I know that you know this, but I’m still going to say this to you. I’m mostly right when it comes to giving advice, so as much as possible, take it :P That being said, I am so proud of you and the person you’ve grown to be in the time I’ve known you. You will always be my Superstar. And I will be your Indiana Jones, whenever you need me to be ;)
Both of you should know that whatever your dreams, your aspirations, your convictions, your premonitions…I’m going to be there for you. No matter what, no matter where I am, no matter when.
