Did you know that in Egypt purple denotes virtue and faith? Well, that's exactly how I would describe my friend Sarah.
Sarah and I have been friends since we were about 10 years old. We were inseparable! But it didn't come with some trying times. We were friends for about a year, got into a huge fight, and then about a year later, I invited her to come over swimming at my mom's house and she accepted. We didn't even remember what we were fighting about, but it didn't matter anymore. (It was probably over some dumb boy! lol)
Sarah is my longest friend, and in many ways my most dearest. See, all my friends hold a very special place in my heart and they all are dear to me in some way, but Sarah, man she was my right hand man. We got into some fun trouble together! The first time I ever snuck out of a house was with her (we got caught like immediately because of her dog, lol). We did things we weren't supposed to do, but we always came back to each other.
I have some really fond memories of us hanging out at Del Taco, riding the city bus all around town, including my Oma's house for lunch, and hanging out with her dearest sister, Sheena.
These memories that I have are memories that I will cherish for a lifetime. Sarah and I have both grown up to become pretty different people, and we are both in very different stages of life. But that doesn't stop us for the occasional get together, chat, or go-to-complain-about-whatever session. She has always been a rock to me. I feel this block represents us well; purple for her faithfulness in our friendship, her incredible virtue, and the fact that we are as different as X's and O's, but together we make a stellar combination.
Sarah is such a beautiful, creative, compassionate, caring person. She's real, and she doesn't hide when something is bothering her. She is the strongest mama I know. I admire her in more ways than I ever think she would know.
I look forward to sharing many more years with you, Sarah. I hope our kids gets to experience chocolate bunnies together and cosmetology school. But maybe not the part with the comb in your scalp or the knife in the backpack ;-) LOL.
Love you, girl.
