No reason.

I have a couple of best friends. But one of them in particular brings me unspeakable joy. He’s so simple. Everything we ever do is perfect and easy and fun. We live far from each other and don’t see each other often, but when we do, it’s glorious. He is always there to greet me with a huge hug and all smiles and laughs and he just makes everything better. In the years we have known each other, we have had our ups and downs and weathered many storms and all manner of clichés…but we have made it through. We trust each other, and with each new challenge, we recall our past and we remember our loyalty to each other. I have cherished him for years and I will cherish him for years.

Over Christmas break we had a couple of really good conversations that reminded us why we are best friends. I don’t think we’d forgotten, per se, but maybe we just hadn’t thought about it in a while. If/when he reads this, he probably won’t think it’s about him, because that’s the way he is.

But anyway, there isn’t much of a point of this other than to share with you that I have this incredible relationship, and I hope that you have the same love in your life.

Freedom is coming, oh yes, I know.
