Dear best friend,
I have literally rewritten this letter a million times because I can never fit enough words together to describe how much I love you. So I have come to the conclusion that I may never be able to describe how much you mean to me, but here's my best shot.
First of all, you deserve the absolute best. You deserve a man who values your heart more than anything. I want to be able to be in a room with you and your man and know how much he loves you just by the way he looks at you. He should be enraptured by the thought of you. You deserve a man who will run and get you McDonald's at 3 am (not because you asked him to but because he loves you and knows you love McDonald's), and then wake you up at 6 am so you can both run off the fries you ate three hours earlier. You deserve a man who loves God above all else and knows that your relationship with Him is the most important. You deserve a man who's first priority is making you feel like the queen that you are. Who is going to push you to be better. Who's going to challenge you in your relationship with Jesus. Best friend, you deserve the world. And if any guy is less than what you deserve, or he hurts you in any way, I will, in the words of you, "kick him in places he don't wanna be kicked." Don't ever settle. You are too valuable to be given to just anyone.
I know life hasn't always treated you right. And I'm sorry you've been hurt before. You never deserved any of that and it was never your fault. But something that amazes me is you push through every single time. You get back up, and you don't let the fire consume you. I am so proud of you and everything you've accomplished. If anyone ever asks me what strength looks like, I'll just smile and say, "Strength looks like my best friend." You are beautiful, you are brave, you are worth it, you are talented, you are strong. Just know, that when it's hard to trust, I'll trust for you, and when it's hard to get back up, I'll be right there to help you pick up the pieces. I promise I won't ever leave, even if we're in a fight or disagree on something. I promise to always be here.
Someday, you and I are going to be in a room full of people who are just thrilled to be near you, because they know they're in the presence of a queen. And I will get to look to the person next to me and proudly say, "That's my best friend." I will also probably cry a little (even if you refuse to cry at my wedding, it's fine it's whatever). You are going to go SO far. Keep pursuing God's heart with everything you are. Because He has huge plans for your life that you can't even imagine yet. No life scenarios we ever create will compare to the life ahead of you. Better than any Pinterest board. You are so gifted in so many things and I aspire to be the woman of God and strength that you are someday. Thank you for constantly inspiring me to be better. To do better. I don't know what I would do without you and I hope 50+ years from now that you're still my best friend. Because I can't imagine going through life with anyone else. Best friend, I love you. Don't ever doubt for a second how amazing you are.
