How sweet it is...

I am taking one moment to say that I am grateful for the friends that I have in my life. Even when I am no fun to be around, or I just dont want to put pants on (so I throw on pajama shorts and leave the house), they are still there. Even when I live 2 states away, they know everything and call or text or email to just say "Hi I love you! Have a fun-filled-fantastic day!". And when I say that I need a girls night, nothing fancy, they make me snacksters and macaroni and tomato sauce and rent movies that end up not being watched because we are talking too much. Really, I am so lucky to have these girls in my life and other friends who care and are awesome too, but these girls, after putting up with me this week, deserve a special thank you. 

Okay, so Lizi really is the most loyal person I have ever met. She is always there for anyone whenever they need it. She is so funny and her laugh is extremely contagious. You can be 
ranting and raving and she listens then she says something and you both just loose it and die laughing. She will always compliment you (or make fun of you for actually) getting ready. She really does anything for anyone at anytime. It is an awesome quality to have. You can never really be angry around her, and when you are, it turns out to be funny. 

If you know me at all, you probably know about Sarah Martin. Sare and I have 
been friends since 4th grade and in 6th grade we became pretty inseparable. Her parents were going through a divorce and I remember going over to her house and talking to her about things that we couldnt comprehend when we were 11 years old. We would walk her dogs and the puppies she had and roller blade around the block all the time. Then in 6th grade we became "Doctor Evil and Mini Me". Then came 8th grade when we were "Paris and Nicole" and Freshman year of high school when I discovered that nothing could really tear us apart. When I moved to Utah in Sophomore year, I never would have thought we would stay this close. She knows more about me than anyone and is always a phone call 
away. She is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. She tells it as she sees it and will not hide things from you. Sarah cares about every ones feelings and as my mom said when we were in 7th grade, "Sarah is just Sarah. She is naturally blonde, but one of the sweetest girls." She is blood to me and I know that I would not have gotten through middle school or high school without her. Even though our lives have changed so much since 4th grade, we still are Silly and Billy. I am so lucky to have her in my life and be able to rely on her through anything. Distance is never a factor with Sare and time doesnt really change alot with us.

Tracy and I became friends half way through high school. She and I got really close Junior and Senior year. She is the nicest girl and has so many talents, but you would never guess cause she is super humble about it. I can call her in the middle of the night (because her phone is under her pillow, as is mine) and she will be there to do whatever I need her to do. She is always considerate and is a big support in everything that I do. Tracy is the one telling me that I can do it when I dont think I can. I have never had her tell me otherwise. She is a mother to everyone and always has a few recipes for treats up her sleeve. She is the best to be around no matter what you are doing. She can be the most serious person sometimes, but then she is the funniest person. Trace and I have been through a lot of things that have been determined to tear us apart as friends, but she has always been there when I need her. 

Okay, thank you to these girls and to every one else. I really do appreciate everyone even if I dont seem like I do. Especially this week. Ha but I promise that I do notice little things and I am so blessed to have the life that I have.
