Everything started in December.
There are times that I look back and wonder how we all got together. We’re completely different but then I realize it’s our differences that keep us one solid bond.
It never crossed my mind that I would find family in these people but then that just proves that God’s thoughts and ways are always higher and better than ours.
We fondly dub ourselves as “US Girls”. It may seem stupid and humorous but deep inside is a friendship full of fun, food, and music; a friendship like no other.
I thank God that He gave me these three people because they became to me the brothers and sister that I never had but always wanted to have. In them, I have found family amidst abandonment and camaraderie amidst solitude.
Every time I’m with them all the stress and worries seem to go away and it’s like I’m transported into a calm paradise with the three people I love the most. Through them, I have experienced fun and laughter like no other. Through them, I have experienced the care and concern that has been missing from my life for 15 years. Through them, I have grown and I have become a better person full of love, joy, and compassion.
From the childish teasing to the serious moments, every part of it is worthwhile just as long as I’m with them.
It’s more than just friends. It’s family. It’s US.
