It’s my bestie windmills birthday!! Today our entire relationship is on my mind. We have been friends for 17 years…man does that make me feel old…
I met her when my entire world was flipped. I had just moved from everything I knew. New town, new life, and a very confused me. I met Lisa my first day of school in this new town. We started talking in the first few minutes, and never quit.
This girl was my everything…boys had no impact on me…it was just that beautiful friendship that got me through a lot of my insecurities and sadness. I showed her that she deserved to be loved and taken care of..I showed her honesty and friendship and family. In return she showed me how to be myself and not be afraid. Showed me how to stand up for myself and respect myself. She taught me that every part of me was beautiful, even my flaws and mental issues (lol) Not going into details about her life..but I felt it my job to take care of her from day one, so to this day it is still my job and I might be just a bit over protective of her..I mean if it wasn’t for her I would still be the scared broken little girl I was when I met her..
We had some of the best times of my entire life together…some good clean teenage fun. Some was a bit immature and bad..but still fun! We helped form each other into who we are today. As we reached “adulthood” we had separate lives. She had a family to raise and I had hell to raise in Arizona! We still talked on the phone when we could. When something important happened in our lives the other was the first to know. When something terrible happened…also first one to get a call.
17 years later, and 10 years after the last time we saw each other, bestie has come to stay with me for a while! She is still as perfect as I remember and has done my heart so much good.
Lisa I love you so much and can’t wait for another 17+ years with you! We shall get into shenanigans when we’re 70!! Happy birthday!!
