Lasting Impressions 8

(Today's Lasting Impressions post was written by someone I greatly admire and who's blog was among the first I read--the fabulous Chickbug.)

I cried...
watching her walk down the aisle.
knowing she would be ok.
when he broke her heart.
laughing so hard we couldn't breath.
not knowing when we would see each other again.
listening to the happiness in her voice.
when she wanted to give up.
saying goodbye.
saying hello.
when she held me in her arms.
understanding exactly what she meant.
because she knew me so well, it hurt.
when I knew I hurt her feelings.
as we sat in silence.
watching her face her fear.
remembering how we once were.
drunk dialing her at 3AM.
peeing my pants as we cracked each other up.
believing she deserved more.
feeling her sincerity.
realizing things had changed.
hearing her footsteps.
convincing her to let go.
when she told me the truth.
because she knew.

I cried because she makes me a better person.
I cried because she is my friend.

hello, goosebumps.
what a great story it is, even though we don't know the whole story.
Those are truly the best kinds of friends.
