Dear Jen –
I always say (even though I don’t want to believe it all the time that things happen for a reason; and that people come into and out of our lives for a reason.
I think if there is a god, he blessed me when he brought you to me. In the darkest hours of my life, there you were. You have been everything I needed at all the right times, and for that I am so thankful.
I have never had to apologize for being who I am. You have accepted me and my flaws (Oh, so many of them). You have been patient when I was not. You have been my rock. My light. My safety net. My buffer. My conscience.
I have become a better person – with your help – whether you know it or not. I have become less angry. I am less bitter.
You do not give yourself enough credit for being so incredible. You balance work, school, kids, a marriage, and a needy friend – and you make it look effortless. A smile and “What can I do to help?” when someone asks you for more. You deserve the world – And more.
THANK YOU for saving my life. I love you.
