The Webster’s dictionary defines a best friend as “one’s closest and dearest friend.”
Not many people can say that about one person let alone many. I have had many “best friends” in my life that fizzled out to mere acquaintances.
The longer I live, the more I find that the ones you hold close won’t necessarily always be close to you.
You grow apart, your life changes, and you just have to realize that life isn’t going to be the same friend group you’ve had for years.
Although, some people just fall into your lap by the grace of God, and in no time you feel like family.
When I first started Cosmetology school, I was so nervous because I didn’t know anyone. On my way there, I’m not joking, I prayed and asked that the Lord would bring me someone in that school where I would have a lasting friendship, and that we could make an impact on the Kingdom of God.
And enter Kylie!
Kylie is one of my favorite people on this earth.
She cries over the most minute things that make her happy (sometimes we call her Krylie), she’s an amazing hairstylist, she hugs me after a long day in the salon, she loves Jesus just as much as I do, she uses the word “WOW” for (not kidding) every scenario, and she constantly tries to make people feel as wonderful as they can in their own skin.
It’s crazy that the Lord works in such crazy ways that you can develop a strong friendship in just seven months.
A few days ago, Kylie showed me around her hometown of Pittsburg, Kansas. Even though I live only 30-40 minutes outside of Pittsburg, I’ve only been there to see their ballet once…three years ago.
We found this PERFECT coffee shop called Signet Coffee Roasters, and they have the best Caramel Latte with HOMEMADE caramel! Honestly it was one of the most delicious things I’ve ever had, and I’m pretty picky! (Guilty as charged)
Pittsburg is precious, and I hope y’all can go there one day!
My life has gotten significantly brighter after this human came into my life! I’m so blessed by her every day, and I thank God that He brought her into my life!
I pray that the Lord blesses y’all with someone that encourages you, loves you, and gets 30,000 bean burritos with you whenever you want!
Kylie, thanks for being a rock in a hard place, and for being the sunshine on a cloudy day to everyone around you!
