Today is the beautiful Ali's nineteenth birthday. Wow, I cannot believe we're getting to be this old.
I wonder, Ali, how long it will take you to notice this little birthday note. ;)
Ali, you are such a special person in my life. I'm so glad to have been able to spend this year with you. I never thought it would be possible to grow as close to a friend as we have. While you will always be my friend, you have also truly become my sister. No matter how much distance is put between us, you are family to me. I'm so glad for the memories we've shared, even the ones that were hard. It's amazing to see how Christ has worked in our lives, isn't it?
I don't think I've ever stayed up all night without realizing more than I have with you. We do that at least once a week, haha. ;) How can we even find things to talk about for nine hours straight?
You have been such a light to my family. We all love you so much. God has blessed me with our relationship. I don't know where I would be without you, silly moments and all. No matter where life takes us, I know we will ALWAYS be there for each other. Not many other relationships have that ability, but ours does.
I love you, weirdo. :) Happy birthday.
