One of my dearest friends in the world is getting married this weekend. She's marrying a friend of mine. I introduced them, kinda. Though I can't take any credit for this courtship. It was fate that they found eachother.
There is a wonderful quote I read once, I think it was Hafiz. He said that you should never refuse a friendship, even if nine out of ten bring you nothing, one alone will repay you. I believe this to be true.
I am honored to be this woman's maid of honor. In the highlight reel of my life, her face flashes in it a lot. I'm grateful that she invited me to grab a slice and beer with her over six years ago. I'm grateful she stood by my mistakes, my insecurities, my most cherished events. I'm glad that I've laughed and cried with her all these years. Even though I'm hours away from her now, I can still feel her squeezing my hand on bad days. Having her in my life, makes my life better.
I am so SO very excited to share this coming weekend with you my dear friend. So very excited.
