We all have that special friend. A friend who exceeds expectations we never knew we had. A friend who’s the complete package: a role model, a comforter, a spiritual guide and advice giver. In my case, this girl has been a solace from all the unhealthy friendships I’ve had. She’s showed me that it doesn’t take a lot to be a worthy friend.
I met this extraordinary girl during my first semester at Washburn. Our faith brought us together and bonded us like sisters. I’ve never met someone so in-tune with their desire to please God in everything they do. Just by hanging out with her my faith has grown significantly. Her compassionate nature and fiery love of Christ has rubbed off. Being sisters in Christ automatically gave us identical morals, beliefs, and values. These commonalities gave us the opportunity to connect on a deep, personal level. She is the first person I turn to in moments of joy and sorrow. I don’t know how she does it, but she always says the right thing. Her advice helped me regain footing in times of bewilderment. She helped me avoid mistakes that would’ve directed me down the wrong path.
“Selfless love is always costly; fear can’t afford it, pride doesn’t understand it and friends never forget it.” – Bob Goff
It’s evident she wants the best for me and everyone else. She has a giving, selfless heart. In addition to selflessness, she makes me feel loved and appreciated, which is exactly what a good friend should do. I never have to worry about her disappearing when I need her – she is always there, no questions asked. That reassurance is why our friendship will always be cherished.
