best friend


i am finally going to update my blog space. i am back at school and of course am loving it. i really do love byu-idaho although some people (ahem cough cough) want me to transfer to byu provo. i will think about it, but for now i am going to class and loving it.

school isn't what i want to focus on though....when you have a best friend, you want what's best for them. you grow up doing everything with this person. you two are conjoined at the hip and some people even think you're twins. you share what's going on in your life and who you like with this person. you would do anything for your best friend to be happy.

the minute my best friends left on his mission, i couldn't wait for him to come home again. i couldn't wait for him to come home so everything would go back to being normal. it was hard because i wasn't able to share certain things with him. he wasn't able to watch me go off to my senior prom or go to my high school graduation or even see me off to my first year of college. he was there in spirit but not there to talk with face to face. i know this sounds selfish but there is a point to be made, i promise.

when he came home, i knew things were never going to be the same. he and i are still best friends and are just as close as ever. when i found out that he was going to get married, mixed emotions came over me. i was so excited for him to finally reach what he had been preparing for his whole life; on the other hand i felt distraught (for lack of a better word). i have to share my best friends with another girl.

my mom put it best: out of everyone in the family, you are the one that will have the hardest time "giving him up." best friend, you know who you are...mom is right. i will be the one that has the hardest time giving you up, because we are the closest. things won't be the same. i can't express how excited i am for you. it's what you've always wanted and i can't wait to be a part of it. although i can't be in the temple to watch you be sealed to your eternal companion, but know that i will be there in spirit. i love you and i could not be happier for you.

That's sweet Al. Isn't growing up and giving up hard sometimes?

You two are lucky to be so close. It's so neat to share that relationship!

And hey, don't totally give up on the idea of transferring down here with us Utahns! :)

Love you and see you this weekend! Yeah buddy!

Hye there Alli! Yes, I'm hooked on these 'blog' sights. I love them! I know you may be struggling just a tad bit but you wouldn't be struggling if you didn't have that relationship with your bro. What a lucky young lady you are!!!! Count your blessings! Love you......mommio

You were one of the first people I thought of when Sam and I decided to get married because I know how close you are. Before he left he always told me you were his best friend. For a while I felt kind of bad...I figured you might not like me because I'm sort of taking Sam away. I am jealous of the relationship you have with Sam and I hope you can continue being as close as you are. It truly is a blessing...
