I owe so much to so many people... for all the good and all the bad. I must also remember all those who have tried to help me; but got pushed around and hurt by me over the years... I am really sorry for being so blind... but there is one person in which stands out so much more than the rest...
I've only known her since August 2008 but she has already helped me and taught me so much! She was the last person I would have ever expected to break through the barriers that have held so strongly for so many years! She has been so much more than just a friend to me... but rather; a gift from God himself!
She has already taught me how important it is to humble yourself enough to find at least one person of whom you trust enough to talk to about anything when that pressure valve breaks...how much easier it is to live life without the weight of the world upon your shoulders. She has also taught me that it is possible to have faith; even when everything you've worked so hard for crumbles and slips through your fingertips.
She has believed in me; even when I couldn't believe in myself... and in the same time; gave me hope for a better tomorrow. There is still so much I have to learn from her...and I am grateful to have her in my life. I tell people that I am their guardian angel...but she has been the Angel sent from Heaven itself to protect and guide me!
I love her so much more than any term of 'friendship', 'relationship', or 'blood' (family), could ever describe. She has told me so many times that "God gives us the people we need." and I have come to believe that I really do need her...because if I had never met her I would still believe that I am all alone in this big, empty world...and I would still be trying to carry the burden of all those around me; as well as my own by myself.
Thank you so much for all you have done already; as well as for all the Faith, Hope, and Pure Joy you will inevitably bring me as time passes by. You've told me that you will always be there for me; a promise in which nobody has ever been able to keep; but I believe you when you tell me...there is something about you that removes all doubt from my mind; and I want you to know that I am always going to be there for you as well.
