Does it make sense to say that we’ve been friends for 23 years?
Because I’m pretty sure we’ve been friends for 23 years.
(How is that possible when we’re just 29?)
YOU. Oh you.
You are an inspiration. You’re real, friend. You’re oh-so-real.
You grow and you encourage and you have left an indelible mark on my life.
You inspire me.
We’re a sappy bunch, us two – and I hope that when we’re old and gray, we’re still a sappy bunch.
I am thankful that all these years later, we’re still friends.
Thank you for being YOU.
Because, dear friend, there are very few like you. You are a gift.
I am so happy you were born.
I love you, Jenn.
