for the birthday girl, gaze!
my friends are few, but i don't mind at all because i know i get to keep the most genuine friends one could ever find in this lifetime.
On your special day, i want you to know that i feel so blessed to be living this life with you as one of my dearest confidante. i'd like to honor you for being one of the people i look up to - for your strength, your determination and your courage to chase after your dreams. for sticking by me all these years - my entire college life was much more bearable with you braving the hardest of days with me, and for sticking around even after that whole ordeal was over.
i admire you for making it through tough times, for being the solid rock in your family but at the same time, being the caring and thoughtful daughter and sister that they oh so love. for being that woman capable of loving, letting go, and loving again. years have taught you so much, shaped you well-enough, that i am sure you are ever more strong to face an even brighter future.
i pray that you remain grounded, as you always are. that you continue striving to be happy and living a life worth emulating. i pray that every dream that God has planted in your heart will grow and bear fruits.
i miss you, Gaze! more than i could articulate. thank you for being a friend, my friend.
happy birthday! have a grand time and always be happy. i love you!
