Thank You, My Dear Friend

“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” — Oprah Winfrey

She is genuinely one of the best friends I have ever had in my lifetime, and I have been blessed with several best friends throughout my life.

She is someone I can always count on through the good times and the bad.

She has always been there for me and has never once let me down.

She is always there to support me and encourage me in all my endeavors — she is my biggest cheerleader.

She has a selfless heart full of love and compassion for everyone — a kinder and more generous soul I have yet to meet.

She never hesitates to offer anyone a helping hand — even if the individual has wronged her in the past.

She only sees the good in people and never harbors any ill will toward anyone.

She is genuinely interested in those around her, as evidenced by the thoughtful questions she asks them.

She is the most non-judgemental person I know and always sees the beauty in everything.

She makes everything around her lighter and brighter with her warm personality and endearing sense of humor.

She is a fabulous cook — any recipe she attempts in the kitchen comes out perfect every time.

She is a marvelous hostess and goes out of her way to make sure all her guests are well taken care of at her dinner parties.

Whenever she visits me, she always arrives at my doorstep with a delicious home-cooked meal.

Her well-brought-up, successful young adult children are a testament to her amazing parenting skills.

She is only a phone call away and always willing to lend an ear to a friend in need.

She feels much more like family than merely just a friend.

We could go months without seeing each other yet pick up right where we left off — the bond between us is unbreakable.

I am truly blessed to have such a kind, loving, and gentle soul in my life.

For that, she has my enduring thanks and heartfelt appreciation.
