Tonight I had dinner with the guy who was my best friend in high school. He wrote me the following letter at the end of our senior year:
Wow, what can I say? If I could write with the brilliance of a calligraphist, or had the mind of a prophet, I could perhaps come close to adequately thanking you for the friendship you have given me. God knows I was very undeserving of it.
You are the only person I can truly call a friend. I want to thank you for believing in me when no one else did. You always told me the truth and kept me from pitying myself. I have told you everything about my life and you've listened. I hope that somehow I helped you with some of your problems and was half the friend you were to me.
For the first time in my life I'm at a loss for words. I just wanted to say thank you for the being the best friend a person could have.
Isn't that nice? He was wrong, though - he was very deserving.Posted by Highwaygirl on May 9, 2005 10:50 PM to the category Friends
