As I was pondering about how to start this note, I was thinking of all our adventures together ever since we met. I could not help getting teary eyed thinking of all the times we have sat down and ended up talking about our families, our childhood, enjoying some drinks or food. I feel like I’ve known you forever and that you have been a part of my life forever. I can only suspect that God had something in developing this friendship, especially in those dark moments in my life. I truly relied heavily on your encouraging words and nonjudgmental feedback. I love you very much!
As we continue our friendship, I just want you to know that I thank you for being there through the bad and good; I thank you for always having the right words of encouragement for me; I thank you now for holding me accountable to my goals and to a certain degree, I thank you for not letting me be too hard on myself especially after finding out that I was going to be a mother. I thank you for not divorcing me after having Ines (LOL). In all seriousness, thank you for everything especially the years of friendship.
P.S. I wanted to be at the retreat so bad, but new job, young baby, certification, classes, it all made it impossible. But I will be ready for the next one for sure.
I wanted to take this time to thank you for all that you have done for me. You have been such an
amazing mom, sister, and friend. You have been my rock and pillar, when all I wanted to do is give up. From the moment I can remember, you have always inspired me so very much. You have become this confident daughter of God, who gives the best of herself and is ever so selfless. You are fearless and brave; you created this Ignite group for the greater good of others. You did this freely and you incurred all the costs, because you truly saw the will of the Lord in all of this. You have so many qualities that if I list them; they would fall short. Just know that I am
so blessed that God chose you to be my blood, but that you choose me to be your friend.
I love you very much.
