My friend MJ tweeted,
So grateful to have people in my life that are so hard to say goodbye to.
I mean how true is that? No matter how excited or anxious I am to return to school it will never be easy saying goodbye to my family and friends. I am just so thankful for my people and the role they play in my life. I am even more thankful that we have fun times to come! Just wanted to share because it really did make coming back to school a little more easy! Thanks MJ!
Speaking of these amazing people today just so happens to be one of the top amazing people in my life’s birthday! Stephanie Bell and I have known each other for as long as I can remember and y’all she is a gem. Last night I was thinking back at all her past birthday parties and when I used to test all her toys out for her! Such sweet memories! Today was the first of her birthdays in a long time that I haven’t at least seen her on her birthday! Kind of hurts my heart a little, but I am SO glad I got to celebrate with you yesterday and get some cake even after it almost caught on fire! Our friendship is like no other friendship I have ever had and I am pretty sure it will remain special for as long as I live. I was trying to think of some of our great memories over the years, but to be honest we have just to many to chose a favorite! Our friendship has changed over the past couple of years, but I know it will never lose its luster! You my friend are forever special to me! Thanks for always helping me succeed even when you just want to stay on your couch. I seriously wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for you! Wish we could have celebrated on your actual day Steph, but we will have many more celebrations over the years… I mean we’ve made it 20 years… I’d say that’s pretty good!!
I hope you are ready for the best years of your life!!! Love you always Steph!
Prayers for a new start tomorrow as classes start… Here we go second semester!
