Today, 1st April 2020 should have been the day that you arrive in England, it should have been the day that we got to see each other, it should have been the day that we got to hang out with each other. It would have today that we were ale to see each other but other things have come into place. Other things have happened that we did not expect and it was a shock to know that my best friend and my bridesmaid would not be coming from America to see me as well as being my bridesmaid! It was hard to see the news come to know that we would not be able to see each other and we would not be able to celebrate my wedding. I wish we were able to see each but it is not to be so this blog is for you and our friendship:
Alyssa my wonderful friend, thank you for being there, thank you for being ready to talk, thank you for picking up the phone, thank you for understanding me, thank you for making my day brighter, thank you for being so kind-hearted, thank you for your support, thank you for helping me through, thank you for calming me down, thank you for coming into my life, thank you for making me smile, thank you for helping me carry on, thank you for being patient, thank you for being my closest friend, thank you for giving me advice, thank you for being encouraging, thank you for your friendship, thank you for helping me lean on God, thank you for your kindness, thank you for being gentle, thank you for giving me a chance, thank you for giving me the extra push I need, thank you for standing by my side, thank you for being the best.
Alyssa you are amazing, you are full of joy and I am so thankful and blessed that you are my friend. I will never forget the first time we met, it was in Colombia and I thought you were crazy! I didn’t realise at that point 5 years later we would still be best friends! I am so thankful for the years that we have been best friends, I am so thankful that even though you are the other side of the world we can still keep in contact and we can still be best of friends. I hate that we are not able to see each other everyday and that we are not able to talk all the time but it makes it even more special when we are in contact and we do get to see each other. I know that even though it will be time before we see each other again it will be special and we will get to spend time with each other. I know now that we are married/ soon to be married we will now make more memories with our husbands and then with our children.
With you being the other side of the world it is hard but I know you are always there to pick up the phone. It also gives us an amazing excuse to come to America! What better people to see than to see you! When we are older we will show pictures of us to our children and we can look back with such amazing memories and such fun. I am so glad for the times that we have been able to have with each other, for the times we have been able to go to each others countries, to have time with each others families and to laugh our way through it all. I know some days haven’t been easy but I am so thankful that I have you the other side of my phone to talk to-I would want no one else to know my feelings and my secrets. I am so blessed that not only are we best friends but we are also sisters in Christ. I am thankful that we both share the shame religion and we can talk to each other about anything.
My best friend I know that I can’t be with you today and I am not able to see each other for a while but I am thankful to know that God is with you. I am comforted to know that when I am not there God is with you, when I am not able to listen God will listen, when I am not able to comfort you God will comfort you, when I am not able to talk you can talk to God. I am comforted by the fact that we will be able to see each other soon and I look forward to that day.
