Friendship Anniversary & Appreciation

How many of you out there celebrate an anniversary with your best friends??  Well, I don't know about y'all, but I definitely believe in honoring the day you became friends with your best friend.  It's so weird because Chris and I have officially been friends for 2 years today, but it honestly seems like it's so much longer than that.  We've been through so much together the past year, it's a wonder we've made it this far, but I guess it's really true; THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR!!  So Happy Anniversary, Chris, you're the best guy friend any girl could ever have!!!

So while I was browsing my Facebook page yesterday, I came across a quote from Madea that one of my friend's had quoted.  "You can't really appreciate up until you've been down."  I agree with this quote 100%.  I'm not saying that I've never appreciated what I've had, but these past few years and the struggles have made me appreciate everything so much more.  I hate to revert to a cliche, but it's true when they say you really don't know what you've got until it's gone.  In the past few years, I've lost some loved ones; what I wouldn't give to hear their voices again.  Even after experiencing an illness in the family, it's definitely enough to make you appreciate everything in life...the ups, the downs, and the lessons learned.  Words cannot express how thankful and how much I appreciate my family!!!
