This girl. I can’t even begin to express how much I miss her. We haven’t seen each other since last May (with an exception of Face-timing). She has been my rock from day one of Nursing School. There would have been no way I would have made it through without her. There were so many days that I just wanted to give up and quit. But luckily I had her by my side giving me the confidence I needed, the shoulder to cry on, the words of wisdom and even at times, she let me use her as my punching bag (not literally) . Not that I am proud of that type of behavior, but she understood at those times and loved me with her heart instead of throwing me to the side. She understands me and my moods unlike no other. And never takes anything I say or do personal. I love that about her. I cannot express what we have been though. Our countless talks, our nights of endless laughs, ice cream binges, cheese and wine, movies and nights out at the bar that lasted 0.5 seconds before we decided staying in and ordering take-out was such a better idea. I cannot express how much I miss this girl. She literally is a beautiful person inside and out and I am so proud of the person she is and the beautiful woman I have watched her grow into. And I am so excited for the future she has ahead of her. Little Josie is just going to adore her Auntie Julia. I cannot possibly wait to be reunited again.
Thanks, Jules, for everything over the years and thanks for being you. And accepting me as me. I love you to pieces. Happy Birthday!
