A strong and beautiful friendship

I started college in 2006 (has it really been over ten years?????). While there I had a lot of friends who came and went. I always imagined that my freshman roommates and I would be lifelong friends, but that wasn't the case. However, during my freshman year I became friends with a girl named Morgan who lived one floor below me and across a corner, so we could see into each others dorms if we wanted to. Morgan's roommate was Lisa, and it wasn't until sophomore year that my then-roommate Rachelle told me she had a friend who sold Mary Kay and was I interested in looking at some?

MAKEUP? PERFUME? HELL YES SIGN ME RIGHT UP PLEASE. The consultant turned out to be a childhood friend of Rachelle's and Morgan's freshman roommate: Lisa. She sold me at least two perfumes that night (there's a 48% chance I still have both of the bottles) and sold me on her as a human being: she was hilarious and obviously a good friend.

Fast forward to 2009, Lisa, Morgan, and another girl all lived together in Downtown Fullerton (commonly referred to as DTF). This was when Keith and I were dating the first time. I turned 21 in that Fullerton apartment, and Lisa bought me a long island iced tea which I tried to pretend that I liked but really it was just not good. Then we asked our waitress if we could maybe have a to go cup for our alcohol since we just lived in that apartment right over there? Shockingly, the waitress said hell no.

During senior year I lived with some other friends, and then halfway through senior year I moved in with another friend's mom. While I lived with the mom, Keith and I broke up. Lisa, Cortney and I moved in together in Brea 5 months later, right after college, on a Saturday where I was so hungover that my nose was bleeding.

Lisa and Cortney saw me at my absolute and very worst. I used to write very sad and depressing poems and I would drink champagne and make them read them. They were there while I drunk dialed Keith. They were there when I switched from selling wedding dresses to becoming a nanny, and then when I decided it was time to move back to San Luis Obispo.

We were in Cortney's wedding, then we were in Lisa's wedding, and then we were in my wedding.

We visited each other during those years after I moved away in 2012. I went back to Brea, they came to San Luis Obispo, and through all of the years and the miles, we remained close, and I will forever be grateful for that. I have had many friends which I thought were going to be lifelong friendships, and then something happens and all of a sudden that friendship which seemed to be so strong has just disappeared and you can't even pinpoint what happened so you can't really try to fix it.

This friendship is not like that. This weekend, Lisa and Cortney drove up to Lake Arrowhead to spend some time together. We went to Strawberry Peak (which is where Keith proposed to me and also where he told me he loved me for the second first time)



 

 
We also went to Hortencia's at the Cliffhanger, where you basically get to look out over all of San Bernardino County (which I believe is the largest county in California). It's beautiful, the food is wonderful, the drinks are strong, and the views are amazing.




We were able to catch up on so many things. Lisa's newest nephew Luke, Cortney's new house, my niece who is with Jesus. We caught up on our lives, on our husbands lives, on our friends lives, on The Bachelor, etc etc. It was such a beautiful time together.

The rest of the night we stayed at Keith's parents cabin (it happened to be vacant that weekend and we were given permission to use it and I will never be more thankful!), drank wine, at cupcakes, and talked until nearly midnight. In a lot of ways it felt the same as when we all lived together in that little Brea apartment. Still talking about our jobs and boys, still talking about the future, still laughing about how ridiculous the Kardashians are. But this time was sort of different. Our talks of the future were more meaningful and everything seemed to have more depth.

When you have friends who have seen you at your best and seen you at your worst and still stick by your side, those are the friends to keep. Those are the friends who will always be there for you. Those are the friends you never take for granted. Those are the friends for which I am forever thankful and I just hope those two beautiful souls know that.



Friends come and go, it's true. But some just come and stay. They come and they claim a spot in your heart and they're going to be there no matter what. I don't deserve to have wonderful friends like Lisa and Cortney. Lord knows I am not a good enough friend to them. But I will continually thank the Lords for keeping them in my life and I will keep texting them random gifs and I will always invite them up to the mountain.

I love you ladies, I hope you know that.

  11. OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JANUARY 2017, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called DR GREATNESS on the forum..I never believed it, because I have never heard nor learnt anything about magic before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until DR GREATNESS did it for me and restored my broken marriage of over 4 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me in the same 48hours just as I have read on the Internet..I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband Matthias turn down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR GREATNESS, you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. You really surprised me a lot with your powerful love spell...I am so happy to share my testimony among views today and more also share your contact informations for others who are in the same problems with a broken relationships..
