We have the BEST friends. Seriously, we do. There isn’t anything anyone can do to convince me otherwise.
I’d like to share with you exhibit A:
Our friends, hard at work, addressing our wedding invitations for us. The process of getting our wedding invitations turned out to be quite a fiasco. Sparing unnecessary details, the invitations got here two whole weeks after we ordered them despite the fact that we paid for overnight shipping….
But I digress. The purpose of this post is to highlight the amazing, wonderful friends we have. So, the invitations finally arrived on a Monday, the day before the bar exam. I’m guessing it was pretty easy to recognize how not ok I was at that point. To say I was stressed and anxious would be an understatement. So, our sweet friends took it upon themselves to hand address all of our invitations.
Although I was there, I did not write on a single envelope that night. I got put on “quality control.” Aka…just sit there and pretend you’re making yourself useful while horrible visions of bar exam nightmares flash through your mind. They kept telling me I didn’t need to be there, but I figured being there was the least I could do, considering their willingness to give us their evenings.
After a couple hours, they had all the invitations addressed for us. I didn’t even stay until they were all addressed. I got sent home, so I could get a “good night’s rest” before the bar exam.”
Since then, i’ve only had to do a handful of them myself, mostly the ones that I didn’t have addresses for that evening. Can you believe that?
They are truly the best friends. They have always been there for me, for us, and have always given us so much love. We are so grateful for unwavering kindness, generosity, and love.
“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”
