So I don’t think I’ll have time to post tomorrow, and I want to put this up before Randy leaves. Basically this is a post just for Randy, but you can still read it. If you want:)
Yes, tomorrow is the last time I will see my best friend for two years. And that’s a very hard reality to accept. The good news is, he’s doing something he’s supposed to be doing. And the people in Japan need him more than I do right now. There is not a place in this world I would rather have him be. I am so proud of you Randy, and I’m lucky to have met you.
So now prepare for the really mushy part. No this is not goodbye, rather it’s “talk to you soon” or “see you soon.” But I just want everyone, and especially Randy himself, to know what this friendship has meant to me.
So, prepare yourself for a mushy, gushy post. If that isn’t your style, well then simply stop reading.
Randy is one of the kindest, sweetest, funniest, smartest, most spiritual people I know. Not to mention he’s good looking:) Randy cares more about other people than he does himself, and always puts those people first. Randy sat around waiting for me to get my act together, taught me more about myself than anybody ever has, has forgiven me time and time again, makes me laugh when I don’t even feel like smiling, listens to all my stories, gets excited over everything, gives me butterflies, is a perfect gentleman, is amazing at singing, playing the piano and playing the guitar, can out-dance anyone I know, helps everyone he meets, loves the Lord and His gospel, and a million other things.
Randy and I have had a million adventures. So Randy Low, thanks for all the Orange Leaf and Frosty runs, our Chili’s dates, temple trips, for telling me what to wear, for thinking I’m pretty even when I’m not, for believing in me, for putting me first, for treating me like a princess, for showing me amazing music, for making music with me, for bringing flowers, for letting me stand on your feet, for catching me when I fall, for sitting with me when I’m sick, for all the hours we spent doing homework, for painting my nails, for coming shopping with me a million times, for laughing at movies and shows with me, for every stupid fight and every last hug. Thank you for being my very best friend. I am going to miss you like crazy, and I have no idea what is in store for us, but I will never regret a second we spent together, because of all the things you have taught me. I love you!!!
