Once I was one and lonely.
Then I was two and a friend came along, her name was Lauren.
We were meant to be bosom friends.
My name was supposed to be Chloe...that was the name of her pet pug.
She looked like a girl...my name was Bryan, I looked like a boy.
I taught her to be feisty, she taught me to be sassy.
She taught me how to roller blade, I told her to part her hair on the side and not the middle.
We were together for everything.
My best friend get's married tomorrow. Sometimes I don't know what to do with myself, but most of the time I'm just grateful I get to be apart of things like this and see her so happy. Whether he likes it or not Devin is gaining another girl in his life besides Laur. But I think he likes it. And I like him.
They're perfect for each other.
They're the perfect couple.
I love them.
Sometimes I cry when I think about her getting married.
If you see me tomorrow I'll probably be doing just that.
But good thing we know they are happy tears.
Good luck tomorrow Laur. I hope everything is perfect because you deserve nothing less.

I found this and thought it was something lovely...
A happy family is but an earlier heaven. ~ Bowring
Aren't you just so grateful for the things that make you happy in life. Family is one of them for me. We're just an odd band of people who shoot each other with nerf guns, make each other laugh and cry, give and receive the worst types of teasing, are happy for others successes and don't mind stealing the last dessert. We know how to bring each other down the hardest but also lift to the highest. We would give our lives for each other yet too often take each other for granted. We share toothpaste, laughs, socks, homes, secrets, sadness's, inside jokes and food. For all the bads that come with us there are a million billion other amazing and heart lifting goods.
I'm so glad to have family and everything that comes in that category, cousins, sisters, brothers, parents, nephews, nieces (hopefully some day) sister-in-laws, brother in law (more someday), friends who are called family just the same, aunts, uncles, G-ma's, grandpas....extraordinary people who were each placed in a spot on our family trees to contribute and make life that much better with God given individual talents. Sometimes they touch on our lives in the most odd ways, but they make us better and we do the same for them.
Where can be a better place but in the presence of family?
