Discovering you, discovering this online space, discovering your stories, your hearts, your laughter – well, it was a lot like coming home. And for this travel weary girl who dreams of white picket fences and stability, that is something special.
You. You are the special.
To me, you are deep-fried, delicious friendship sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. You are tight, tight hugs in the wee hours and double helpings of ice-cream topped with bursting red strawberries. You are understanding and acceptance and a warm blanket on a cold night.
You are the snuggie of friendships.
You are the place where motherhood is a challenge that’s worth undertaking and a chuckle that’s worth sharing. You are the people who get how hard it can be to uncover the woman buried beneath the layers of dirty dishes and stinky diapers. You are the friends who do the happy dance on a whim and scatter encouragement like sprinkles far and wide.
You are the whipped cream and cherry on top of any double thick chocolate milkshake.
You are the one-year-old this month, in this place, who brings joy to everyone watching as she smashes her birthday cake with glee and stuffs it into her mouth with both hands. You get just how great chocolate frosting is.
I wouldn’t change a thing. Not one thing about you or this last year together.
You are beautiful and faithful and fun. You are lovely and honest and real. You are my people.
“Kind words are like honey – sweet to the taste and good for your soul.” – Proverbs 16:24.
And I would totally eat your friendship up if I could.
But, maybe instead I could offer you something just as delicious – a $100 home decor shopping spree! Just look at all the yumminess you could get!
