I miss the faces. You can’t erase. You can’t replace it. I miss it now. I can’t believe it. So hard to stay. Too hard to leave it. If I could I relive those days I know the one thing that would never change. Every memory of looking out the back door I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor. It’s hard to say it, time to say it. Goodbye, goodbye.
Every time I see/hear this quote I think of L.A.D…
“You go to college to meet your bridesmaids – not your husband.”
I’ve definitely had my share of friends that have come and gone. Out of all the ones who survived the many drafts that have been conducted, I’ve been blessed to be apart of an amazing friendship self-entitled, “L.A.D.” I’m trying to think of a way to put it in words and all I can do is watch the cursor blink. It’s just…us. It’s one of those friendships that are one of a kind that can’t be recreated with anyone else. We’ve had occasional “guest appearances” and we definitely have friends that we consider close, but the bond that the 5 of us share is definitely one that I think will last a lifetime. Of course all friendships endure fights and fall-out’s, but only true friendships make it through the storms stronger than they were in the beginning. I love these 4 girls dearly, & they all have taught me something different – either through talks, or just through the amazing lives they live..
CEKB - “I’m a hustler ask about, ask about me.” We all know if push came to shove and one of us needed an obscene amount of bail money – God forbid – you would make it happen! Getting to know you over the past few years has definitely been an experience! Double Chelsea’s, Double Trouble! Whether you know it or not, you give me motivation every single day! Even though your a new college grad trying to find your way, you never let anyone – even us – see you sweat and I admire that! Whatever career finds you, I know you’ll be amazing at it. Whatever it is, make sure you get an office that doesn’t have glass windows behind your computer because you know I’ll be skyping you some foolishness!
ABH – “Who’s there to save the hero, after they save the world?” *Sigh*…the rational one that makes everyone else be rational when we least want to be! Even though we both have these “plans” of dropping out, we both know that those plans will never suffice for our desired lifestyles. I think I learn the easiest from you because in many of your situations, I see myself – from family issues to guy issues. We’re both people that everyone expects to be the big girl, so we provide strength for our loved ones and are left to console ourselves behind closed doors – making us the strong women we are today! Don’t ever let anyone make you believe you’re anything less than incredible!
CMJ – “F*** them other niggas, cause I’m down for my niggas.” We all know you’re the one that stays saying something crazy, outta the way, or just….irrational, but that’s just you and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Without a doubt, I know in any situation I know you’ll have my back. We may end up in jail afterward, but at least we’ll be there together. You may make some crazy comments/observations, but they are memories that will last a life time. Thanks for always being there.
CJW – “We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to turn it all around or to throw it all away.” Words can’t express how happy I am for your return, and I’m sure the others can say the same! You have always been full of life and now you’re just overflowing! Your blissful spirit and your appreciation of life is so inspiring! I’ve always strived to go about my days keeping in mind that it could be my last, and you give me motivation to continue my efforts in doing that. Your stories move me and your fortitude inspires me.
Ladies: I know I don’t say it enough, but I love every one of you to death and you know I’m always here if you need me! It seems like every year another one of you leave me for the real world. It saddens me, but I know y’all will hold it down until I make it there. These last 3 years have been phenomenal and I look forward to the years to come. Our weddings shall be colossal! Oh yeah…coral goes best with my skin tone.
