This person is the only one you would go the distance for. It’s the one person that’s embedded deep within your heart. When you hear the word “trustworthy”---this is the first person that comes to mind. The laughter you share is like no other. The inside jokes and little secret understandings are what makes your friendship that much more special. It’s sharing with family and friends; it’s letting them become your family and who you are. The differences between the two of you should unite the bond even more so, therefore allowing you to grow and learn together and not having predictability. It’s hours over coffee talking about everything and anything and not realizing how much time has passed.
You never stop learning about one another. Never, should the words, “Oh I know him or her” come out of your mouth; you should be able to know there is so much more to them. Once you quit learning about them, admitting knowledge of the full person, the relationship may take a downward spiral. It’s never giving up on one another. It’s being able to critique without belittling. We all need honesty.
Honesty. Vulnerability. Unconditional love, to the extent of what a human being is capable of. That, to me, is what a best friend should be.
I have this in you, Madelene.
11 more days till we say our vows and continue sharing our lives together. I can't wait! I love her more each passing day!
