I absolutely love the fair and the boys know that I love the fair! So tonight they took me to the fair. Well 2 of the 3 boys took me to the fair.. (Jeramey has to have his own night because he is special.)
Needless to say, I learned a lot about the boys from this experience. The boys love me! Not that I doubted it.. at all… but see girls.. we love different. We say it, we text it, we scream it.. we post it (like I am doing now).. the boys they let me know in different ways. They remember the smallest details about the things that make me happy like me going to the fair. They give me hugs, say dumb jokes and throw out compliments about the 38 pound weight lost.. AYEEE. They randomly show up at my job. They text me and tell me I am doing a great job and somehow when I need them the most, all 3 of the show up and brighten my world! Sometimes I take them for granted because THEY NEVER DO THINGS THE WAY I WANT THEM TO DO THEM! But they make me tough, they remind me of my strengths and abilities, they share the guy code with me and they make me laugh. WHAT MORE COULD A GIRL ASK FOR RIGHT?
From my relationships with them individually and collectively, I have learned a few things….
- Surround yourself with people who are different from you! All 4 of us are completely different… from religious beliefs to preferred restaurants… We only agree on Ruby Tuesday because it is the only thing in Moss Point.
- Be willing to grow with your friends… 5 years ago, all of our lives were completely different. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!
- Trust your friends with your dreams…. It is amazing the things that we have accomplished over the past few years. It all started from a conversation in the Rankins’ living room.
- Real love is unconditional. Believe it or not we have been through some stuff. We have had disagreements, fall outs, fights, weeks without talking but the love never changed. It is pretty unconditional.
We are not together as often as we once were but the miles nor the distance change the fact that when I see their faces or their names pop up on my phone, I instantly feel loved. It is amazing to have the boys! I am so glad they decided to take me to the fair. It was just what I needed to get over the hump! 🙂
