And yet another weekend has come to an end. Becoming friends with the person you hate because of those couple of silly red cups, or the wonderful evening with your boyfriend, girlfriend or families -Regrets and memories, they will all be put on hold for the next five days of school where everything goes back to what we like to call, “normal”. You go back to hating that girl and thinking wow that really happened, doing homework and (like me) spend the week thinking about the next date with your boyfriend.
My weekend was probably the best in awhile! G came home to be with me all weekend, and it’s truly amazing when you can honestly open your whole heart to someone, and know that it is in a good place. We are “officially” back together and I couldn’t be happier because of it. Yes, we have things to work on but no one is perfect, and I get that. Misunderstandings and arguments happen during relationships, but it’s how you get through it that counts. When you are in a serious relationship with someone, you are going to butt heads and get into fights, but you have to ask yourself if the relationship you are in, is worth the fight.
It’s weird because tonight, when Garrison came over to say goodbye on his way out of town, I just felt so in love. We weren’t even doing anything, and we were only with each other for about five minutes, but in that short amount of time I felt the same way I did when we had kissed for the first time. He makes me feel alive and wanted. I can honestly say that Garrison Stone Elsenpeter is my best friend, and my boyfriend. And I want to be with him forever. I know people say that all the time, and think “Oh they are just kids, they don’t know what they are talking about.” But it’s like who are you to talk? You do not feel what we feel, and certainly are far more immature then you think we are. People fall in love at various ages and mine just so happened to be 16. Sure we are young, and sure we have our whole lives in front of us, but he’s the one that matters. We can make it through anything and we will.
You all will see.
“It’s not giving in
It’s saying nobody’s leaving
But you know that I still love you
Even when we’re disagreeing
Cause sometimes our silly fights
May go well into the night
And we hit the sack
Back to back
Too ticked off to speak
We’d rather hold our grudges
Than be the one that budges
We’d go to bed
Butting heads and tugging sheets
But we never fall asleep
Without touching feet”
Feet by Rodney Atkins
I have a friend who is going through a rough time right now and it just dumbfounds me on how people can act and just walk out of people’s lives just like that. So much for being a “true friend”. Tonight as we were talking a boy at the young age of three came and walked up to her and looked straight into her eyes and said I love you. Honestly it was probably the most amazing thing I’ve ever witnessed. After hearing that I saw her face light up like there was nothing wrong. So in that moment, nothing else mattered but hearing those three beautiful words. I know it made her day, as well as mine. She is an unbelievable friend, woman and human and she deserves to be happy and I will do anything in my power to make sure she is. I love her with all of my heart and can honestly say she is one of my best friends.
Young kids amaze me. They have a sense that we don’t. When I saw the boy say I love you to my friend, it made me think that they feel so much more then us. He felt her, and knew that she needed to hear that, it wasn’t just a coincidence. And that is remarkable, so cherish your young ones because they mean the world, and not only to you.
