I wasn’t sure what to write this year, but then Jörg´s Türchen, remembered me that I should be grateful for every day that I get to spend with people I love. So here we go ….
To be honest, I do not know and do not remember how I got to know you. You have been part of my whole life. Our mothers were good friends, so in a way or another we were always connected.
And then at the age of 13 we started our journey together, same class, high school and friends group. We lived together those crazy teenager years, had fun experiencing new things, feelings and emotions. We laughed and cried together, we grew up from girls to women. As life moves on, we also moved on.
We started university, two different countries, separate universities and new friends, but somehow we always had a way of picking up from where we left off, we always re-connected. I will always remember those warm summer nights, when we would talk for hours as if we were never apart, the feeling of being home with you and feeling myself is something that I always cherish in my heart.
As much as you want to plan your life, it sometimes surprises you with things that make you happier than you originally planed. And this is what happened to us, grown ups now living in the same city – how did that happened? We graduated into adult lives and problems. Adult jobs, responsibilities and tears. But also a lot of adult fun and adventures:).
Alba, you are more than a friend to me. You are my sister I never had, my partner-in crime, my other half, my soul-mate. You know me better than I know myself. You accept me for who and how I am, and tolerate my faults. We have laughed and cried together. You are always there for me, always. Together with you, I feel stronger.
You are part of my family.
You know everything – everything about me, but you don’t judge me for it. You never have.
You get me. You understand me. We understand each other. You know when I’m feeling down, you just know better. And I’m glad you know better, because sometimes I feel like no one understands me. But you always do. You always know what to say and what to do. And if you do not know, you are still there for me.
I love you Alba and I am happy to have you in my life. Your friendship is one of the most important things in my life as you make me a better person. Thank you for being you. For being the most wonderful best friend I could ever ask for. For agreeing – to be part of my crazy life.
