I supposed I should've guessed there would be a letter to you. You were the reason I transitioned so well into life outside of my home. I was a shy little girl going to school, and you were the person who made going to school fun. You made me feel not alone. You were my first friend. That's a big honor for anyone. The first anything is always an honor and usually sets the bar high.
We were there for each for many moments: from big things like camping trips and playing baby dolls to the not-so-fun moments like trying to comfort me in 1st grade after a peeing of the pants incident at girl scouts. Yep. Mortifying. Yet, you stood by my side and that says a lot about a person especially in the cruel waters of elementary school. Throughout life you continued to demonstrate your integrity in all aspects of your life.
I'm not sure why we drifted apart. I know a part of it was my social awkwardness. You had big dreams and you didn't let anyone or anything slow you down. I'm so honored to have been your first friend and I wish you many happy blessings on your life.
